Where do you go to find the latest job openings in and around Las Vegas, Nevada? The world wide web, or your local newspaper? If you answered the web, congrats! You’re definitely on the best path to employment. But it’s no breaking story that Nevada’s economy was hit hardest by the Great Recession, and if you are among the thousands of job seekers here, you really need every edge you can get.
To hone in on the best web resources for your job search, it’s essential to concentrate on your main goal. For example, if you are transitioning careers and/or trying to build your experience and skill sets, you may be hungry for intern or freelance work.
In that case, the best place on the Net to find timely, relevant opportunities in Nevada is Craigslist.org. Specifically, head over to lasvegas.craigslist.org and sign onto the “Jobs” feeds in your categories to have timely opportunities delivered to your browser’s bookmarks as they are posted.
Nine-to-five seekers need to get a bit more savvy than Craigslist, however. You already know how to lookup your top five desired companies, research their corporate history and culture, and peruse current career opportunities from their websites.
But what you may not know is that many corporate/company websites do not treat their sites as the primary source when recruiting. Where are they listing the most current positions on the web? LinkedIn and Twitter.
In fact, even small businesses use Twitter as a favored tool for broadcasting their Help Wanted needs. These smart employers know that Twitter is a great social networking community filled with inquisitive, creative, tech-savvy people in the know, and that makes it fertile ground for attracting the best candidates.
Plus, Twitter is a free and easy tool for employers and recruiters to use, and every Tweet is broadcast in real-time to all users, making it the timeliest resource available to job seekers in Nevada, or anywhere.
If you haven’t signed up for a Twitter account yet, you should do so ASAP!
