Did you recently graduate from college or about to? If yes, you are probably looking forward to the start of your professional life. It is a heady time. You have gone through the rigours of school and college and are getting ready to take flight on your own.
How to get started with your job search?
First, brush up your CV, make sure it is all up to date and includes all relevant data for the job you are looking for (if you already have a particular position in mind). If that is not the case, you will need to adapt your resume and have several versions ready as some openings ask for education and experience in the area, others may also want to know you’re outside the job/education interests. Send/upload the corresponding CV to each site.
Next up is where to send your resume. There is an overwhelming number of job listing sites out there. Do not hesitate, pick a few and begin the job seeking process. We recommend Resume Rabit, Doorstang, Climber, Vault etc.
After sending your CV to several or all of these sites, do not just sit idly waiting for that follow-up call or email. There are small jobs you can do to make some money while waiting to land that dream job. This amazing opportunity is called freelancing and the best part about it is that you can literally do it from the comfort of your own home. All you need is a good internet connection and you are all set. Join a freelancing platform and bid on projects according to your experience and skills. You can find anything from design work, to content writing, data entry to virtual assistants.
Wishing you success in your job search and in your freelancing career.
