First, many businesses have a Jobs and Careers section on the site. Find the best companies in your industry or those you are interested in working for and check out what job opportunities they offer. You might not find all the open positions posted on job boards by some companies, so it is worth visiting their websites to see if they have any. You can check back often, but some companies may also offer the possibility to create job alerts for specific roles.

Companies looking to hire new graduates are particularly fond of job fairs. Here are some tips to help you make the most of a job fair and get hired. Many job fairs will list the participating companies in advance. Make sure you do your research on these companies and prepare a resume and cover letter.
Your business card should include your name, email address, phone number, and optionally, your website, blog, or LinkedIn account. Bring work samples from your portfolio if you are in the creative field. For the job fair, you should have a powerful outfit. You should choose the appropriate clothing style. It should be professional but comfortable.
Prepare a list with questions for recruiters. It will demonstrate that you are passionate about the job, and increase your chances of being remembered by recruiters. To make a great first impression, practice your personal pitch. You must communicate well through your introductions and maintain eye contact.
Keep in touch with recruiters at the companies where you are interested. Send them a thank-you email if you know their contact information or connect with them via LinkedIn.
4. Website of the Company
Many people have a list of companies they are interested in working for. It is a popular strategy for job searching. It can work if you do it right. If you have a list of preferred companies you will want to visit their sites to check if there are any job openings. Find a human resource contact to reach them if they do not have any openings. Politely inquire about future openings.
Remember that the company website can be used as a research tool to identify contacts who are able to make hiring decisions. As part of your networking efforts, you might try to connect with people in the area or department where you are interested in working.
5. Channels for Social Media
LinkedIn is a social media platform for professionals. It can be used to connect with other professionals in the same industry or companies around the globe. LinkedIn is used by many organizations to post jobs. It is also a common place for people with experience to receive messages about job opportunities.
Opportunities will be posted on Twitter and Facebook by companies. If you are interested in a specific company, you can “follow” them to get notified about these openings. You should ensure that your social media profiles are consistent and up-to-date if you use them to search for a job. Here are some tips:
Your real name should be used on your profiles
Use professional images only and ensure consistency across platforms.
Audit your accounts to find inappropriate posts and images.
You can delete the profiles from websites you no longer use regularly.
