Job Search Websites
Tired of feeling like the lost "candidate" on all the other job search websites? Try posting your resume on craigslist and see if you get better results with your job search!
It's no doubt that today's job market is tough. You could be the most experienced professional in your line of work and hold three degrees, but after sending out 50 resumes to 50 different companies, you haven't even gotten so much as a bite on a potential lead?? It has nothing to do with your lack of qualifications; this is just the way the job market is. Employers all around the country are now going by the "it's not what you know, but who you know" approach to hiring candidates. No matter what big city you're searching in, employers are virtually the same when it comes to finding their perfect candidate.
There are several job search websites out there that allow you to post your resume and apply for jobs for free. The problem is, these websites are over-populated and are used by nearly everyone seeking a job. There is one website that allows you to do these exact same things, but the difference is that a lot of people still haven't heard of it..."craigslist". Craigslist is a revolutionary tool that can help speed up your job search, and it is just as popular with employers as all the other job search websites.
Craigslist is a website that was developed in 1995 as a research tool for the residents of San Francisco Bay. The site contains everything from items for sale to discussion forums to the latest job postings in your local area. It has expanded into the eighth most popular website and serves as one of the primary sources for job research in most major cities. You can research the statistics and see for yourself the success rate of those who utilized craigslist to find their dream job!
To post your resume on craigslist in your city, simply log onto www.craigslist.org and select the city in which you live or wish to work. Once there, you will see a link at the bottom titled "Resumes". Click that link and look at other resumes in comparison to your own. This will help you make yours even better. But remember that before posting on craigslist, it is a good idea to run a spell check over your resume. You don't want employers looking at your resume and thinking you aren't even educated enough to know correct spelling for your resume.
Craigslist clearly explains how to easily upload your resume onto the site, and the best part is, it is free of charge and you can be rest assured that only the city you choose and its local employers are viewing your credentials - not hundreds of others like the other job search websites.
After you've posted your resume, take a look at the hundreds of job listings available on craigslist for the city you've chosen. No matter what your profession, you are sure to find jobs available in your area of interest. Craigslist provides this service for free as well, and you can view and apply for as many listings as you wish.
Keep in mind that many top-notch employers only post on craigslist for the city in which they are located in order to find quality candidates! If you've tried other job search websites in the past without success, then why not try out craigslist today?
