Your self-directed employment assistant

The traditional way that most people think of when you say “finding a job” goes as follows: A jobseeker needs to find work. They look for job postings that an employer has advertised. Jobseeker comes across an ad, responds to it, gets an interview, and is hopefully hired. Though that tried and true method is still very common, there are non-traditional approaches that are becoming more and more prominent. Read on to learn about some ways to search for a job in a non-traditional manner. 

Finding a new job can be stressful enough, but when you add in a competitive job market, that adds in another layer of complexity. Trying your luck at landing a job in a non-traditional approach can be as refreshing as it is rewarding. First off, utilizing social media as a means to obtain employment is a great way to go about it. Not only will a lot of companies put their current openings on their socials, but if you catch their eye, they can peruse your accounts and see what you’re all about. If that is the route you want to go, be certain that your social media is current and that you have content that will only be helpful in securing a job. The next way to find a new job is by attracting potential employers to you by way of a website created by you! Essentially this would be an interactive site that showcases your skills, experience, past work, and what you have to offer. If a hiring manager comes across your site while searching for viable candidates and likes what they see, you could get an offer for an interview! Lastly, it’s been said many times before, but networking is an amazing way to get access to a wide array of jobs that aren’t openly advertised. Those in your network might know of an opening that is available at their company and send it your way— and could even put in a good word for you to their employer. The opportunities are endless!

I hope that you have gained some helpful knowledge to assist you in conducting a non-traditional job search of your own.

With that, I bid you all a farewell! This is my last blog post as I’m leaving this job. It’s been a privilege and an honor. I wish you all the best of luck, good health, and a happy future!
