How To Get Or Find Job Online - 9 Important Things You Need To Know
How To Get Job Online

The Internet is the world's biggest library, newspaper, notice board and network all rolled into one. So, as you might imagine, it's a great place to start looking for your next job. Read below for helpful advice on where to start and how to succeed.

1. Write a comprehensive resume
Before you begin, write a comprehensive resume. This should include everything that you could ever want to include on a resume: your entire work, educational, and volunteer history, as well as highly comprehensive lists of your skills and abilities. This will save you time later.

2. Write an outstanding cover letter
This will get you surprising far, so don’t neglect it. People will often write generic, boring cover letters and employers will quickly get tired of reading them. If you write one that stands out, you’ll be much more likely to get noticed.

Make sure that the letter is specifically targeted towards the job you are applying for. If it’s for a particular company, refer specifically to that company’s goals and mission and talk about how you fit into that larger picture. If you have experience with the company, outline how that good experience has led you to want to work with them.
Try to match the language of the advertisement. If they sound like a quirky company, sound quirky. If they sound like they want serious dedication, sound very dedicated. You want to sounds like an employee that would fit in with their particular work environment and “brand”.

3. Include Keywords To Your Resume/CV
Look for keywords and phrases in the advertisement and add them to your resume and cover letter. This will especially come in handy if you are applying at a large corporation which will probably have to deal with lots of applications. Many companies use software to sift through resumes and cover letters. Using terms which appear in the advertisement (such as self-starter, motivated, energetic, or dedicated) will increase your chances of the software noticing your application.

4. Establish an online presence
This will be a very important step, Create a profile online where by employers can get information about you. Employers will frequently do a search on employees. If you have embarrassing information about yourself out on the web, knowing about it beforehand will give you the chance to remove as much of it as possible and prepare to counter anything that cannot be removed.

5. Search for job openings through websites
Try the usual job hunting websites. These will allow you to search by the industry that you’d like to work in, as well as sorting through part-time and full-time work. These websites will cover a wide variety of jobs at a variety of levels, from entry-level to higher positions.
6. Target Vacancies in your Area of Specialization
Target jobs, rather than just applying for everything and hoping for the best. You will have a much better chance of getting a job that you are fit for. Especially don’t apply for multiple unrelated positions with the same company, as this will make you look unfocused. Targeting positions will also keep you from ending up with a job you don’t really want.
7. Apply quickly
Be timely in applying for positions, don’t scoot in at the deadline. This will show that you are on top of things but also help you to be higher up in the pile of applications to review. Employers will often be tired of reading applications by the time they get to the bottom of their pile, so you’ll have to do more to stand out if you apply too close to the deadline.
8. Reply quickly:
If they email or call you asking for more information or offering you an interview, respond as quickly as possible. This will show that you are interested, dedicated, and timely... very important qualities in any employee.
If they offer you an interview or the job but you are waiting to hear back from another potential employer, you can try delaying tactics but these will not work for long and they may not leave the best impression. Ask for an interview a day or two later than what they offer and tell them you have a previously scheduled appointment, like a doctor’s appointment for yourself or a family member.

9. Take Caution:   
Be extremely wary of any job asking for a lot of personal information. Be especially wary of jobs asking for your social security number.
