Top Tips to Save Time in Your Canada Job Search

At Summit Search Groupour Canadian recruiters in our seven offices across Canada are busy with finding qualified and experienced candidates to meet a variety of client needs. For job searchers, however, the process to finding the perfect position is a lot trickier than it used to be.

According to an article by Amy Edwards, she states:

In 2013, 95% of job searches involve the internet in some form or another and finding a job is much more complicated than just keeping an eye on your local newspaper. … With so many sources, searching for jobs these days can feel like a full-time job in itself but there are a few shortcuts available which allow you to keep up to date with the latest jobs without giving up 100% of your free time.

From sourcing candidates to broadcasting vacancies, social media is now an integral part of any employer’s recruitment process so it’s essential you’re connected too. Look at the recruiters, brands and any specialist career websites and job boards operating in your niche and be sure to follow them on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and Google+.

But simply connecting with them isn’t enough. Why? Because unless you’re connected 24/7 there’s still a chance you’re going to miss out – you never know, the tweet they send out the second you log out could hold the details of your perfect job. To make sure you stay on top of all their tweets, create specific recruiter/job board/careers lists within the businesses you’re following and be sure to check it at the end of each day or every couple of days to ensure you don’t miss out.
