Useful Advice for finding a job

How to look for a job

The first stage is to send your CV to recruiters and employment agencies.
These companies have an extensive reservoir of job opportunities in every field.
For this reason, it is safe to assume that the larger the number of agencies that receive your CV, the quicker you will find work - exerting as little personal effort as possible.
Employment agencies do not charge the job seeker and therefore it is worthwhile to let them do the job search for you.

The second stage in finding a job is sending your CV to companies where you are interested in working.
In order to do this, you could use a company directory such as the Yellow Pages, Dun & Bradstreet or an internet site that specializes in company information.
Your CV can be sent as a regular letter, fax, or e-mail - for which the preference is e-mail, since this is the cheapest way and your CV will be transferred directly to the personnel department.
Likewise, sending your CV by e-mail shows that you know how to use a computer.
