“Laptop on, coffee poured – right let’s find me a job. Where are all the vacancies all in one place, I know a job board? Quick, easy what could go wrong”.
With more and more people using these sites every day and the providers of the service making their use even easier to navigate, you can be forgiven for thinking that this is a foolproof way to find your next job. It requires minimum effort, and you feel you are proactive.
But guess what: blindly submitting your CV to as many job boards and for as many jobs as is possible isn’t going to help. Job boards are competitive places. Employers will have hundreds, maybe thousands of CVs to filter through. To get ahead of the game follow our simple steps.
Niche or Everything – We all know the big job board names, they have the big advertising campaigns, advertising they have millions of jobs and millions of CVs. But how much of this is relevant to you and what you want? Do you want to place yourself in such a competitive environment where you can be a small fish in a very large ocean? Niche jobs boards often have real relationships with their clients, their adverts are bespoke, tailored to get appropriate applications, and often they focus on quality over quantity.
Understand the process – No job board is the same, and certainly, no advert application process is the same. Before you start searching for jobs on your chosen job board ensure you know how the site can help you and what process you will go through to get that all-important face to face interview.

Our top applying tips:
Content is king for everyone. Job boards often put on some fantastic articles (like the one you are reading now!) to help you in your search. Such articles are there to give advice, keep you up to date on current trends and support you in finding that perfect job. Relevant sector blogs, vlogs, interviews and news will keep you up to date and make the process of finding your next position informative and entertaining!
