Now a days everything starts with the Internet and ends with the Internet. Recruiters search profiles on the internet through various portals, interviews also happen through the internet. Employee eligibility status check , references check, every thing happens through the internet.

Though it is absurd, it's very crucial for everybody to use the internet, stay available on various job portals and keep updating our selves so on and on. So you an follow some below mentioned activities to get absorbed in flow of job market.

Expand Your Networking and Social Circle

“This doesn't mean you have to go crazy and put schmoozy events on your calendar 24/7. It does mean it's time to invite your colleagues and friends on coffee, lunch or happy hour (and encourage them to bring along someone you may not know). Having a discussion with them will give you multiple ideas along with the opportunities where you can network. Set a goal of attending one or two professional or networking events per week where you will get attractive and powerful referrals which may result in business.

Perform a Reverse LinkedIn Search.

Do a LinkedIn search for the job title you want in the general “people search” area, not in the jobs section. This search should return a list of people who are in the role you want and you'll know the companies that hire for these roles. Not only will you identify potential employers, but you may also find a potential way in. Employees typically get a referral bonus, and a quick connection to them can get you the "in" you need if they're still with the firm. If they've left, maybe you can be their replacement or they will give you an inside scoop that could either encourage you to pursue the opportunity further or avoid it all together.

Follow the Application Process.

Make sure that you are following employer application processes to the letter. If they ask you to complete pre-screening questions, do it or you are apt to be screened out of the process before you even have a chance to speak with a real person.

Target Decision-Makers.

Create a job search plan and a professional online image (LinkedIn at minimum), and put together a targeted list of 30 employers. Contact decision makers at these employers with a clear message indicating what transformation they can expect to their company, division or department when they hire you

Start a Blog.

Create a positive online presence that you can reference in your resume and/or during an interview. There is no limitation on which topic you should write but if it would be related to your field, it will give you a very good results in getting job. Reading your blog posts will give a potential employer an idea about your way of thinking and the depth and clarity of your thoughts.

Be Proactive.

Identify the industry that you are interested in and find the leaders within your geographic preferences. Next, find a job opening that you are interested in and fill out all of the online requirements of your top three choices. The next step is to identify the appropriate people in the organization that could help you (company president, personnel director, etc.). Send them each a personal letter and a hard copy of your resume. Try to make an appointment with those that you have sent your resume too.

After one week, get dressed in your best business clothes and look like you want the job that you are seeking. Go to the companies that you identified and ask to meet with the person who has already received your application online, the same person that you called. With that much determination, perseverance, and courage you've proven that you are one of the best candidate.

Monitor Your Online Presence.

“Stay off of social media like Facebook and Twitter during your job search unless this is related to your profession. If you must engage in social media, create accounts that use abbreviations or pseudonyms that cannot be easily researched using your name or other info on your resume. This kind of research is the rule rather than the exception these days, and the more information you have accessible in this realm, the higher the likelihood that some of it may be construed in a negative way by a potential employer.

It is a very personal and subjective area. What you consider benign or not possibly detrimental may not be viewed that way by someone else.

Do Not Focus on Yourself Only

Give more than you get. Listen more than you talk. Networking is not all about you. Organisation will consider and promote you only and when you will deliver at least three times extra than your annual earnings.

Last but not least your attitude, appearance, energy, behavior, honesty and dedication is matter for your healthy career life than what qualifications you have on your documents.

So Wish You All the Very Best !!!! Happy Joining !!!!
