Brighton’s People Now Have Changed Job Seeking Landscape – Thanks to the Internet!
|Published: 8th October 2019 21:08|
Once upon a time, there was an era when people passing out from prestigious institutes used to be unsure of their future’s job prospects. It was a traumatising question for them that despite having a degree, would they be able to land a job or not? Before, there were not only fewer job opportunities, but it was also difficult to know about an available job opportunity. Skimming through the newspapers in search of job advertisement, asking people for a reference and trying to sneak into career fairs were the best possible ways to get a job. But not anymore! That ‘once upon a time’ is the story of the past because the internet is shaping our present with a more promising future.
There might be many voices alarming people over the penetration of the internet in our lives, but these voices surely don’t include job seekers. The world of the internet has changed the way employer recruits employee and the way job seekers seek job. Now, they don’t have to spend hours while reading newspapers to find their desired job. The Internet has brought all the possible job opportunities to a stretch of just one click.
If you are still unaware of the miracles internet technology is doing for the job seekers, then here is some insight for you into the current scenario:
Online Job Platforms:
Who knew that there would come a time when you wouldn’t have to go from company to company for dropping your resume, just not to hear back from them? But now that time has actually ascended! There are websites like JustBrightonJobs.com where you can find hundreds of jobs related to your field and area. In fact, these sites also offer you the opportunity to online deliver your resume to the employer without going anywhere. You just need a device and internet connection to come across your dream job within seconds.
Blessing of Social Media:
Social media is mostly known merely as a platform to post your selfies, communicate with people and take a peek into other people’s lives. But social media is not only a platform where you find jaywalkers roaming around. It is also a place where job seekers log in to find information about a job opening.
There are many pages on Facebook and profiles on other popular social networking sites that post information about the available job opportunities. You just need to like or follow these pages and profiles, and any job information posted on these pages will appear in your newsfeed. Simple!
Professional Social Networking:
Connection with professional people and social networking has always been considered essential to get the upper hand in the competitive market. Obviously, if your potential employer would know you or some other people will tell about you to the employer, then it would be easier for you to get a job. Well, before this networking was done by attending different corporate events and fairs. But now, you can do it by joining online professional networking sites like LinkedIn. You can directly connect with employers and talk with other job seekers in your field about available job opportunities while sitting on your sofa. In short, the internet has made professional networking a lot easier, valuable and result-driven than before.
The Internet has made it possible for newbies to step out of their institutes with confidence because they know that they would not only have access to job opportunities but would also have a choice of selection.
