When I first started off job searching I used typical channels like the Yellow Pages, the Job center, and Recruitment Agencies. These sources of employment selection are fine but sometimes can be slow. Plus the access to such information is limited to when you want it or when you have a suitable amount of time to search. So what I wanted was a resource that would help me find a job that was the most suitable for me and at the same time be able to do so quickly and efficiently.

At first I tried using specialist CV writing websites. Not sure if this actually helped me find a job quickly as I found the majority of the websites I came across weren’t the real thing. So then I started researching how job searching for a CV should be. And I found that using a good agency could help me achieve all my goals.
So I signed up and started building my online portfolio. I wanted to build a good professional image. So I joined a recruitment agency in the north of the United Kingdom called Job portals. Within days I had put together a really good professional CV that really promoted my skills and had links to my previous experience and education. This was going to be the main way I went about my job search.
Another good thing about Job portals was that they actually sent my CV out for free. This was a great bonus as it meant I didn’t need to spend a penny on advertising my new job. Most recruitment agencies used to send my CV out for free before charging me a fee, but I decided to go the easy way and not spend any money.
So I built my online CV and started sending it to recruitment agencies. And guess what? My CV got sent out to hundreds of recruitment agencies. At first I was a little overwhelmed, I couldn’t believe how many companies I was sending my CV to, but it soon became obvious that CV’s got sent to which companies.
So I just kept sending them my CV, which still had links to my previous education and experience. It just seemed to be going in the right direction. So after about a month I started to wonder whether my CV was actually helping me find a job. I took a few weeks to put together a nice clean business profile which I submitted to all the recruitment agencies. Sure enough my resume was sent out again to a few companies, but this time I noticed that I was being linked to a more qualified individual than the first CV I put together.
So I kept on sending out my CV, and I also opened a couple of new accounts. Again I was linked to more qualified people, and I started to feel more positive that I might finally find some new jobs. Then one day I came across an article in an employment specialist forum where one of the members was going through his CV and putting together a good list of job searches he had received whilst doing the job search for a few months. This article was good to see what kind of results people are getting when they put together a CV and use recruitment agencies.
Recruitment agencies can really help you find a job, but they won’t do it for you. You have to actively go out and search for the perfect vacancies yourself. This is where a CV and a cover letter had come into play. A quality CV will not only get your CV spotted by recruitment agencies, but it will also encourage the potential employer to contact you, which is the whole point of the job search.
