A different approach to finding a job

Posted on February 23, 2015 at 9:02 pm

When starting the hunt for a new job most people will trawl through numerous listing either at the jobcentre, online or in the newspaper. This will provide you with a long list of many vacancies for all sorts of available positions however sometimes, particularly if the job is advertised through a recruitment firm, the company that are advertising the position won’t be named. This means that you end up applying for a job with no idea who your future employer could be.

One of the most important things to consider when you’re looking for a job is what sort of company you’d be working for and it’s always worth knowing that in advance so that you can research the company ethics, their business history and their market reputation.

Normally the company that you work for is more important than the role that you are applying for as with most companies it’s fairly easy to move around internally once you have your foot in the door. With this is mind it could be an idea to research a company that you like and send them your CV with a good cover letter to simple ask to be considered for any future positions, regardless of whether the company have advertised vacancies or not.   If you have a good CV and show willing they may just find you a role or offer you a position that they haven’t even advertised for yet.
