How to use tech effectively in searching for work 

Tech is the modern way of ensuring that you make your search for work as effective and streamlined as possible. However, there are right and wrong ways of using it. You certainly need to make sure that you are in the former category to seek out the positions that mean the most to you and the ones that work well. 

Look in the right places 

First of all, there are plenty of general job boards out there that you can easily use, but it is certainly worth checking out the more specific ones if you are seeking out a certain type of work. For example, it is worth taking a look at hot shot trucking job load boards for shipping work if this is what you are interested in the most. It is easy to find shipments by country or route; all you need to do after is place your quote to complete the delivery. There is no point in wasting a great deal of your time and effort seeking out jobs that are simply not suitable as they are not posted in the right places. 

Clean up your social media 

Social media plays more and more of a role in the modern world, which certainly means that you need to do all that you can to get your accounts in proper shape. To begin with, this means taking a look at your LinkedIn account, as this is the main window to your employment history. However, more and more employers are checking out other social media accounts, so it is certainly worth having a purge of them. At the same time, you can also be more cautious in terms of the privacy settings and ensuring that you are restricting access to your accounts as needed. 

Network online 

Even though this is a highly digital world, it is more than worth ensuring that you rely on your network to help you in your search for work. This can be as simple as sending out a message to an old colleague, as they may have moved on and know of an opportunity that is coming up. If you are more open in your search for work and you are not currently employed, it could be the case that you are able to write a post and put it on LinkedIn to give employers the opportunity to get in touch with you directly. 

Make your resume stand out 

When people are used to sifting through resume after resume, it is always nice when one stands out from the crowd. Therefore, it is worth using design tools as a way of adding a bit of interest to your resume. Ultimately, the more effort that you put into this, the more likely it is that you are going to be able to create a stand-out resume that gets noticed. Sometimes, the design only has to be simple but still conveys the info in a more interesting way. 

All of these are amongst the different ways that you can use tech to effectively search for work. Ultimately, it is more than worth using all the tools available to you.
