Already exhausted with online jobs search
I just came back from holiday and I feel I need another holiday. I had spent the last the two days searching for on-line jobs. It requires a full time job to go through if you Google “Accounting jobs in London. I suspect 99% of jobs advertised are from recruitment agencies. How one tells which jobs are real? In addition, the same job position is advertised in hundreds different sites.
If you go to the small recruitment companies sites, most of their jobs are found in the big companies (the same jobs), such as Reeds and Hays. I also suspect that most of the positions advertised are not real jobs. They just wanted to get your CV on their database.
So only on my third day of job searching, I am overwhelmed with information and struggled to make any sense of it. I feel I need another break.
What do I need to do in order to be a savvy job searcher? What are the tricks in the market? Is it a waste of time to go after the big players, such as Reeds and Hays, instead focus on the small local ones? Apart from the recruitment agency route, is there any other way to find a job?
Any help and suggestion would be much appreciated.
