Modern technology has made hunting for a job easier than ever. If you know how to make the most of job search platforms, you can really simplify your job search. Let's look at a few ways you can make the most of this great tool.
Pick a Top 3
The first thing you should know is that there are a lot of job search platforms out there. Most of these platforms will be similar in many ways, but they will also have special features that make them unique. Because there are so many available, though, it is important that you research and pick a top 3. If you try to use all the platforms available, you will wind up going through a lot of duplicate information which will slow you down.
Once you have narrowed it down to your top 3, take some time to familiarize yourself with the layout of the platform and how it is navigated. Learning how to navigate your top 3 platforms will help you to move through information more quickly so that your time spent job searching is used efficiently.
Keep Track of Your Activity
Remember, the platform isn't going to do all the work for you. You will want to develop a system that keeps track of your activity such as which jobs you have already applied for. You could do this by jotting down where you have already applied on a list and keeping that list handy. Keep the list up to date as you hear back from hiring managers. This will help ensure that you are not reapplying for the same positions on different platforms.
Using a job search platform is a great way to speed up your career search as long as you know how to make the most of the technology.
