Job hunting can be hard especially when there is still so much competition out there for jobs advertised. Following the recession, there were a number of people that were made redundant and few companies were taking on new members of staff, uncertain of their future. This saw unemployment figures rise dramatically over the next few years and only recently have we seen these figures drop down to the usual level.
During this time more and more people were applying for jobs, so previously where as a company may have received 20 applications, they were receiving hundreds. The internet offers a fast and easy way to job hunt. Many companies advertise vacancies they have on their own website, but if you haven’t got the time to go through all of these then you could sign up to an online recruitment company or register with a jobs board to see a number of positions that are suited to your location and skill set.
