Using Genuinejobs.com Part 2 – Understanding the way vacant jobs are posted.
So by now you must have had time to go through the website. Thoughts? Leave us a comment below. Today we’ll take a closer look at the actual job search and how to use the jobs database effectively so you can apply for the jobs you qualify for.
Note: All the new vacant jobs posted will always appear first when you access the job search page.
As you access the page where all the vacant jobs are posted, you’ll see a job title and a short description of that job. To view the actual posting, you must click on the link itself and you’ll be immediately redirected to the page with the full details of that particular vacant job. Using the image below as a guide…
A. Job title
B. Brief description of the job
C. Click on the job title to learn more about that job.
After you click on the link (A – above) the page with the actual job description will load for you. Note: To get back to the main job listings, you have 2 options. You can click on the “back” button on your browser or if you look closely at the top of the job posting there will be a “back to jobsearch” link for you to click on.
Some key features of the job description page:
A. As in the previous image above, this is the title of the job. Be sure to include that when you apply for the job. Dear employer I’m applying for the “position title” …
B. This is the description area and will contain all the details about the vacant job. Please read this area carefully, since it will contain all the important specifics from the hiring employer.
C. Here’s where you’ll see how to go about contacting the employer. In most cases this will be an email address, but there are times when it will be a fax number or actual street address that you must mail your application to.
In some cases you’ll also see the employer’s name and the person you must make contact with. If that information is posted (contact person) we highly recommend that you address them by their name and not send it a “to Whom It May Concern” type application.
Good luck with your jobsearch and don’t hesitate to leave us your comments or questions.
