I don't know where to look for jobs. - April 23rd 2018, 02:14 AM

I'm on the job hunt. I've been using some of those online job finding sites but am not having any luck finding anything decent. Even though I'm trying to avoid retail I'd even apply there, but there's not even a lot of retail offered. I'm drawing a blank on where to look locally as well.

What tricks do you all use to find jobs?

I use indeed. Linked in also posts jobs on their website occasionally, which I didn't hear about until I went in to a career advisor, so if you have one there is an option to look for a job on there. There's also monster, but I'm not a big fan of monster, indeed has way more jobs on it I think.

Have you tried going to an employment agency? They can help you find jobs as well.

It's hard finding a job with the economy the way it is now I'm still having issues finding something office-y as well. Or like I think I mentioned to you in chat at one point (or was it someone else?) Some times the college that one graduates from has alumni career services.

Hang in there! Something will come along.

1. (of a person or animal) able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions.
2. (of a substance or object) able to recoil or spring back into shape after bending, stretching, or being compressed.

We all possess resilience, we just need to realize it.

What type of job is in your scope of ability?

Can you type accurately?
Have you a pleasant telephone voice?
Do you take meticulous notes?
Can you write shorthand/longhand?
Can you drive?

If yes to some of the above, perhaps a Personal Assistant job would be rewarding though you'd have to dress smartly.

Or perhaps a curator's job. This usually involves archiving in a museum.
Or maybe a librarian's position. Libraries also use computers so maybe there's a job in admin.

Admin jobs are always available at hospitals and healthcare offices.

Look out for small ads placed in shop windows. I want a gardener so I'm advertising in our newsagent's window.

If you have a van, think of delivering stuff for people or be a courier on a scooter, even. There is always someone wanting something taken somewhere.

In many jobs, referencies are even more valuable than qualifications.
