Tips for online searches:

  • Check the date – older job ads are likely to be filled
  • Check the location – can you get to the workplace?
  • Read the job description – do you know what the job involves and do you have relevant experience?

Tips for offline searches:

  • Up to 70% of job vacancies aren’t advertised
  • Networking – family, friends, volunteers you work with may know someone with a vacancy
  • Cold calling – make contact with a business that hasn’t advertised a job and introduce yourself by phone, in person or by email.
