Obviously, before you start your career hunt, you should have some sort of training or experience in the field you want to work, and you need to have a plan (which includes having a stellar resume). Once you know what you want to do with your life, the search begins.
The internet is going to be your saving grace when it comes to finding the career of your dreams. In fact, maybe the career of your dreams will having you spending far more time on the internet. One of the main types of places you’ll be searching for your dream job will be job boards, like Monster and Indeed. You can just type in the type of job you are looking for and where you want the job to be located.
You can Google specific things, like “jobs for freelance writers,” which may pull up some career options that you wouldn’t find on the more general job search sites. It also pays to do some research on your career choice and find out where the best jobs in the field can be found.
Staffing agencies are an excellent resource for more than just temp jobs. You can find very specific career types with some staffing agencies, like working in dispensaries, or even nursing careers.
Take some time to look into staffing agencies both locally and online, and find out if there are any that work specifically in the field you are considering. It could be the way you get your dream career.
You can also use social media for job hunting. LinkedIN is a great avenue for looking for work of all kinds, and it allows you to get into contact with CEOs and potential coworkers. You can even post your resume so it is visible for all to see.
Even general social media sites can help you in your career search, whether it’s through friends or a business page that you follow.
