Searching for Jobs in the Net

Coming out of a great program such as the Creative Communicatins program at Red River College, prepares me for a promising career. At this point, I just finished my work placement. Now, it's full gears to finding that right job.

We've got the internet to rely on for the latest job updates. There are numerous job sites available and it's a matter of clicking on that button for that particular site to send you a job alert. If you know what you're looking for and you've narrowed down some of your choices, these sites can be really useful instead of annoying.

Here are a few sites that you can check for jobs. I find these very useful and it really keep me in the loop on what's out there (a good site for jobs in the non-profit sector)

A good friend once told me that even if you found there's nothing out there (no job postings or anything that suit your qualifications), go out and pitch yourself. It wouldn't hurt if you 'sell' yourself to organizations that you'd like to work with, so long as you know how to present your best qualifications.

So in our search for that right job, keep it going and send out resumes. Give cold calls to organizations or companies, and ask if they have any job positions open. You would be surprised that some would accept your resume and they will keep it on file let's say, for the next 6 months.

I hope that I was able to help. All the best in your job search and let me know if the links I've provided are useful to you.
