Typically, the job search involves a lot of traveling down streets and sidewalks in unkind weather, going storefront to storefront with a resume in hand only to be told "we're not hiring" or "apply online". And this is just to get an application turned in - not even for an interview. Thankfully, applying online is actually becoming the norm, rather than a way to turn down hopefuls.
Though it might seem like a new experience, online recruitment sites or jobs have been around since 1994. NetStart Inc. software was first developed algorithm to help companies put up their job openings and also manage the responses (emails) too. In 1998, it transformed into a website with its own address and began to operate under the name CareerBuilder.
It is just fair to say that among virtues of the internet, online job sites are definitely one. Since we spend a greater part of our day online, it’s only fitting that we can gain something out of all that time and resources we put into it. Online job sites are simply a blessing to the unemployed coalition.
Unlike the newspaper ad section, you have access to thousands of job listings of various diverse work fields. And since it’s cheaper (some actually go for free), companies don’t hesitate to post any job openings that comes up. Also in the absence of financial-space restriction, they are able to provide more detail about the vacant position. Some companies even go a step further to review a candidate’s qualification through a series of aptitude test.
And for the job applicant, so many wonderful opportunities to explore! Upload your CV and have prospective employers review your qualities without any disappoints if you are turned down. It doesn’t break your spirit when u don’t have your hopes up (unlike being turned down at the door). It is both efficient and ineffective in job searches. Accessible 24/7 anywhere any day.
