Properly looking for work is a full-time job. Get yourself organised from the start - make to-do lists, checklists, an overview of the applications you have sent and that are still open etc.
Active job search
Networking, online job portals, vacancies on company websites, in newspapers etc. – use all of these channels to help you find a job. Talk to friends, acquaintances (even from a long time ago) and tell them what sort of job you are looking for. A large number of vacancies are filled in this way. Your personal contacts can also be very helpful when looking for work.
With its online job portals, the Internet is an extremely important tool in finding work - make good use of the wide variety of options and opportunities it has to offer! On an ongoing basis, find out online about any newly advertised vacancies and if possible, subscribe to the relevant notifications of new positions.
Unsolicited and telephone applications
Not easy, but efficient. Prepare carefully!
Personnel consultants and/or headhunters have a lot of useful contacts with employers and can provide you with individual advice and assistance.
Following up on applications
If you haven’t had a response to an application for some time, get in touch with the company and calmly and politely ask them about the status of your application. This shows the potential employer that you are interested and makes them aware of you!
