Search a job position fast…ER!

Google_searchFast… It’s the word that best describes search engines.

Let’s say that you need a job as soon as possible. What are you going to do? Hum, I am looking for a Marketing Coordinator position within the Montreal area = 199,000 results. Do you really have enough time banked on your “free-time” account to click on every single link?

Well, as for one, don’t have that kind of time. But I still would like to find a position.

In order to make your searches fast…ER, you can use a tool called ‘advanced search’.

  1. Decide where you are looking for a job. In this example we are going to use Montreal.
  2. Choose key words that are specific to the type of the job you are looking for. In this example we are going to use Marketing and Manager. If you wish to use a job title you must encapsulate it with quotation marks like ‘marketing manager’
  3. Add these four words: ‘job’, ‘resume’, ‘submit’, and ‘free’

Google Advanced Search

By doing so, we instructed the search engine (Google) to return web sites that have marketing manager jobs but are not ads resume-submitting business.

We also add the ‘free’ word because we do not want to waste time on websites that offer ‘freebies’ if you sign up with them. Done correctly, you can add some more words that you do not want in your research, perhaps you should include companies names that you want to avoid!

514 stands for Montreal’s websites but you can choose: 819, 450, 418, 438, 450, 579 or 581.

Once you have found the job you want to apply for, you will need some information about that specific industry, won’t you? Search engine will there again by able to help you out. Google search: ‘Chamber of Commerce+Montreal’, and click! Google will give you the answer.

To find out more information about the same industry you can search conference, convention or trade show. Example: [conference or tradeshow or convention] marketing

conference or trade show or convention  marketing   Google Search

Following these simple steps you are a long way ahead in your job search.

One of the best things about social media and blog is that we can share our experiences with others, so I invite you to share yours in this space. In your experience, do you know how to improve search engine search even more?
