Using LinkedIn to job hunt

If you are tired of trolling monster and the other huge job boards and getting nowhere, try using LinkedIn to search for work.

LinkedIn is powered by SimplyHired so you can search for the latest jobs from all the job boards while networking at the same time. If you find a job you like you can then search for people who work there and try and make a connection.

Here's a few other posts about maximizing your LinkedIn experience. And if you dont have a LinkedIn profile, I suggest you create one.

You can do a similar thing on Search for jobs on Indeed using keywords and location, then click the *>more* link at the end of any search result. You can then click to view your contacts at that company on Linkedin or Ryze.

Paul - one search. all jobs.
