Looking for work online

Many employers and recruitment agencies advertise job and training opportunities via social media including FacebookTwitter, and LinkedIn. To keep up to date with current training and employment opportunities, you can create a profile and like individual company and agency pages on Facebook, and follow companies or agencies on Twitter. On LinkedIn, you can create a personal account and after entering details about your skills and experience, the site will recommend jobs for you.

Be careful about how much personal information you share publicly when setting up an online profile, and always check your security settings. Some employers will look at a job applicant's social media profiles as part of the recruitment process, so make sure you avoid posting anything offensive or embarrassing photos of yourself. 

The employer recruitment guide gives you details about how some national employers recruit new staff. Other useful websites for job searching are available in the looking for work online document.

The following Facebook pages are a good place to start if you're looking for jobs online:
