Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) May 13, 2010
There’s finally some good news for U.S. job seekers. According to a recent report from the Labor Department, job hiring in the month of March reached its highest level in 15 months. But with more job opportunities comes more work when deciding what positions to apply for and how to find them. To help simplify the process, Satellite Star Internet, an authorized dealer for satellite Internet with HughesNet, offers the following tips for online job searching.
Focus on specialty areas – From building construction to online marketing, there are organizations and associations dedicated to nearly every industry. And many of these organizations have their own websites. Job seekers should always check websites dedicated to their field – many pull top job listings for the industry and let candidates set up e-mail alerts so they are notified when a new job becomes available.
Search using high-speed Internet – Job searching can be a full-time job. To make the process more efficient, it’s important to search using a high-speed Internet connection. In rural parts of the country where DSL and cable aren’t available, satellite Internet makes high-speed searching a possibility. It’s important to research providers to find out if satellite Internet is the best solution.
Consider a resume revamp – One of the most important aspects of finding a job is having a killer resume. Fortunately, there are dozens of companies that offer resume “revamping” services. They take a job seeker’s resume and update the format, content and overall layout. Prices can range anywhere from $50-$400, but the price is often worth it. Having an outstanding resume is a great way to stand out against the competition.
Use comprehensive job searching sites – The best job searching websites let visitors narrow down jobs by location, pay and experience. This helps speed up the job hunt, while weeding out irrelevant positions. Sites including SimplyHired and Indeed pull job postings from across the web and group them in one place, so job seekers can find opportunities at huge corporations and local small businesses.
