Top Tips When Searching Job Sites For A New Role

Top Tips When Searching Job Sites For A New Role


Job searching can be daunting, especially when you’re faced with thousands of job opportunities. However, our team at additional resources has been busy putting together our top tips when searching for a new job role!



When searching it is important you use keywords that are important to you - ensure to be specific to the type of job you are looking for.

We suggest using the most popular job title to give you a view of the most jobs, search by location and the salary bracket you are looking for. Also, search using your qualifications and jobs you hadn’t maybe thought of will appear, etc.

Job Alerts

When visiting job sites always set up job alerts as you will then receive alerts for vacancies specific to your skills and sectors, ensuring that you don’t miss the jobs that are most suited to your needs.


When searching for a new role use the filter function then you can easily sort through the jobs available rather than scrolling through lots that are not relevant.

One Click Apply

See if the board has a feature called ‘One Click Apply’, this allows you to upload your CV and cover letter to the site, and then apply for jobs with one click.

Company Specific Search

Use this option to search by organisation and find all of their available jobs on the job site.


When applying for a role use Glassdoor to find out more about the company you are applying for. This will give you the opportunity to get a real feel for the interview process, the culture at the company, and what the job might involve. Plus whether the actual salary matches up with the advertised range.

Job-related Goals

It takes a great deal of time and effort to find a new job. In a long job search, it's easy to get discouraged and distracted, but by focusing on achieving daily goals you can motivate yourself while also building a foundation for success.
