4 Ways to Get a Job
Are you are looking for a new job? If so it can be difficult. With the job market becoming more competitive, there are many candidates same job position. However, the most frustrating thing about it is that a majority of the open aren’t even public, which means you can’t apply for them the way you can apply for jobs that are public. There are hidden jobs out there, which you need to find if you are serious about landing that job.
Here are 4 secret ways you can try and access the hidden job market and land your dream job.
1. Attend Conferences, Courses, and Seminars
Another way to expand your network of contacts is to attend conferences and seminars which are geared toward helping your grow your skills. The more you know, the more interesting you will be to potential recruiters, and therefore increase your chances of getting hired. But, taking courses also demonstrates your willingness and your ability to keep on learning, which is something every employer looks for in an employee nowadays. They need people that can learn quickly and adapt to the changing market.
On top of being a great way to help out for a good cause or to give back to your community, volunteering can also be very beneficial if you are on a job hunt. How so?
“There are plenty of companies out there which hire volunteers after they have proved their worth. Also, volunteering is useful for learning new things and expanding your set of skill, which will look good on your resume. Finally, there is the fact that you will meet a ton of new people while volunteering, some of which might be able to connect you to the right people.” – Joyce S. Toups, Head of HR at Careers Booster.
3. Always Check the Companies’ “Careers” Page
You would be surprised how many companies out there never really bother with posting a job ad, or even hiring a professional recruiter to connect them to the right candidates. They simply post information about a job opening on their website and leave it at that. Some don’t even go that far. Instead, they rely on their employees to locate talent for them, which brings us right back to the importance of networking.
4. Promote Yourself Online
With tons of social media and blogging platforms at your disposal, you have all the tools you need in order to promote yourself and your work. For example, running a blog which is relevant to your industry can help establish you as a thought leader in your niche, which won’t go unnoticed by the recruiters. Also, you can use these platforms to showcase your work in much greater detail than you would be able to in your resume.

As stated before, I do not have experience writing blogs so every so often I will make a post just talking about things that are important to me with the Christmas season here.
First I would like to talk about my kids. I have two of the greatest daughters anyone could ask for. My oldest will be 18 this summer and my youngest just turned 11! Watching them grow up to be an amazing young adult and young teen has made me feel like I have done something right.
Next, family and friends. I have the best family and friends that anyone could ask for. Our family is all close so holidays we get together and eat, watch sports and play cards. This is a huge part of making life worth living.
Last I will talk about www.ohioworksnow.com. I created this site to give job seekers a regional website to find employment and employers to find employees.
I know there are other sites out there but they are very expensive to post on. My goal is to build this site up and make it very affordable to find those employees needed for every job. With every post and every share on social media, our site grows, so tell your friends about www.ohioworksnow.com
We would like to wish everyone that sees this a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
1. Check Job Alerts
Checking for job alerts is by far the easiest way to stay active in your search for a new job. It literally takes less than a minute to pull up your email, open your job finder and scan over the newly posted jobs that match your search.
2. Post Your Resume
Posting your resume on databases will instantly increase your exposure so this is important. Employers pay a fee to search most resume databases. Including your resume in the mix tells them you’re ready for hire. If you don’t have a resume, there are many avenues out there that can assist so take advantage of it.
3. Contact a Recruiter
Most recruiters are free for job seekers, reaching out to one is a great way to learn about jobs that may not be on all the job boards. When researching recruiters in your area, find one that specializes in placing candidates in your field. Many recruitment firms focus solely on one or just a few industries so make sure you are contacting the right recruiters.
These are three easy ways to find to find a job and make sure you start your search at www.ohioworksnow.com!
Welcome to ohioworksnow.com, a job board for employers and job seekers in Ohio. I will be honest, we do not know much about blogs but we will try to add content and talk about our site and what is going on currently.
First we will talk about why we created this site ohioworksnow.com.
Spending the last several years at my current job, one of my main duties is hiring new staff. I will not mention any websites by name here but trying to go online and post open jobs was a difficult and very expensive task. I spent $25 on a certain site, posted many jobs at that price and received no applicants.
There are other sites that range from $50 a post to $400 a post, that’s right, $400 for one post. My intention with this site is to allow businesses in Ohio to post jobs for inexpensive prices and after this website grows, employers can find employees for much less than other sites.
As of now it is free to post on ohioworksnow.com. In the future there will be a charge but it will be a small fraction of other sites.
We have job packages that will be able to be purchased, there will be a single posting plan, a 5 job posting plan and an unlimited monthly posting plan.
We hope to see you post and if you have any questions, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
