Organize Your Job Search

An effective job search requires a structured approach. Below you'll find our suggestion for how to proceed.

1. Get to know yourself

Looking for work is a big undertaking. But where do you start? How should you prepare? Begin by learning more about yourself—for instance, what sort of work you would like to do and where you have the best chances of success.

Here's a questionnaire that will help you identify:

  • your interests
  • your strong points
  • your job-related needs and expectations
  • what you know about your target job and the state of the labour market

2. Find job offers

Employers use a variety of ways to get the word out about their job openings. This means you'll have to look in more than one place.

See the Job Offers section to learn about different ways to find job openings.

3. Use the right resources

To ensure your job search is successful, you have to have the right tools. See the Tools for Job Hunters section for lots of tips and sample documents to help you find a job.

4. Assessing your job search

Whether you've found a job or not, it's important to take a look back at the approach used.
