Four "Secrets" to Maximize Your Online Job Search

Four By Angela Rose, BioSpace.com

Since the '90s, online job boards have grown in popularity with both employers and job seekers. In fact, according to the International Association of Employment Websites, there are now more than 40,000 job boards and employment sites connecting potential employees with hiring managers and HR professionals worldwide. While most job boards are fairly straightforward to use (you post your resume and search for jobs), they can become a bit of a time drain if you fail to use them effectively. Consider these four "secrets" to help you maximize your online job search.

1. Know what you're looking for before you start searching.
You could easily spend hours upon hours browsing open jobs that you have no interest in -- or are unqualified for -- unless you put some thought into the job you want and narrow your search accordingly. Think of it like shopping for anything else online --you save valuable time by searching with specific keywords. A Google search for "women's shoes" will return thousands of results, just as a search for "management jobs" will. Narrow it down to "clinical trial research manager" (or "women's running rubber soled shoes") and you'll have a much better chance of finding exactly what you are looking for. More...
