4 Easy ways to find a job

Updated on December 8, 2015

The Dilemma

Looking for work can be a job in itself. Although the economy has slightly improved the unemployment rate is still at an all-time high. Demands are higher when it comes to qualifying for a position leaving many job seekers with challenges. Gone are the days when having a high school diploma and job experience would land you a $12 an hour position. In today’s economy in order to qualify for an entry level position you have to obtain some sort of college education. As the demands grow higher those who have the experience but don’t fit the company’s criteria, resort to working a dead end minimum wage position. Some even just give up.

Fortunately, all is not lost and there are ways to go about finding a job. Here a few options to consider.



Temp Agencies

Temp agencies is a good way in looking for work, and the response is rather quick depending on the field of work you’re looking to get into. You can find temp agencies anywhere locally around your area by just googling online. The only down side about temp agencies is that most of the positions only offer temporary work. But depending on how hard you work most companies after a certain period of time will hire you permanently.

I've come to find out that this website has the fastest response when it comes to posting your resume online. Indeed.com is a simple job site that helps you find the specific job you’re looking for within your area. There are no fancy or lengthy questionnaires that you have to answer to apply for jobs.

Within the first week of posting my resume through indeed I received over 10 calls from different companies within the same week. The site also provides help in creating your resume.

Craigslist Job Advertisments

Craigslist is another great way in finding work and getting a quick response. What makes this website useful is that every job posted is within your area. Positions are posted every 15 minutes on this site from General Labor work to Sales and marketing positions. All you have to do is respond to a job post by email with a detail message explaining why you feel you can be a good fit for the position. Along with the message attach an updated copy of your resume for further consideration.

Walk-in

It might be the old school way of doing things but it actually works. When people see you in person they actually get to see who you are, what your demeanor is, what you look like, and whether or not you can be a good fit for the company. In situations like this you have to sell yourself, give the hiring manager a reason as to why he should hire you. Go in detail in regards to your experience and what type of employment you desire.
