Job Hunting
Find a job

The secret to hunting for a job is to network! Research shows that only 20% of all jobs get advertised in newspapers or online job recruitment websites. Networking is the art of building alliances. By tapping into this “hidden job market” you will make your next job search easier.

When you begin your job search, think of all the people you know – relatives, friends, professors, classmates, and co-workers. You should make an effort to meet these people and ask them for their advice and take the opportunity to let them know that you are currently in the market for a job. A lot of jobs don’t get advertised because most can be filled by recommendations from existing employees, so don’t be shy of letting everyone know about the kind of role you’re after.

Canvassing employers
Direct contact (by telephone, or in person)
This job hunting method requires you to contact the employer who has the power to hire you. Remember if you decide to go via this route, you will need to provide evidence of how you will be an asset to the company.

Employment websites
Employment websites is the ultimate way of searching for jobs online. Most have facilities for alerts, where-by a job description fitting your ideal job can be emailed to you directly. You can also upload your resume and cover letters so that prospective employers can view them.

Recruitment agencies
Recruitment agencies are similar to employment websites, however with recruitment agencies you usually work closer with the recruiter. There are literally hundreds of recruitment agencies in Melbourne and around Australia. You need to register with the recruitment agency of your choice. Once you have registered they will contact you if they feel you are suitable for a particular job.
