What are the leading job search engines?

Although it certainly isn't true to say that finding work is easier these days, job search engines have made the process of identifying employment opportunities less of a burden. Both employers and recruitment agencies advertise their vacancies on the leading job sites. All that you have to do is enter the type of vacancy, your locality and whether you want temporary or permanent work; the results will be returned to you in seconds.

The most popular employment search engine is Monster.co.uk, closely followed by Reed.co.uk. It's essential that you register with both of them as each has tens of thousands of vacancies. All that you need to do is choose your login information, enter a few personal details and upload your latest CV. Once you're done, the application process really couldn't be simpler. Just click the apply button, decide whether you want to include a covering letter and your application will be submitted. Once you've applied, you'll receive a brief email confirming receipt of your application.

There are also lots of smaller employment sites, including jobsite.co.uk, fish4.co.uk, alljobsuk.com and jobcrawler.co.uk. Although they lack the volume of work opportunities, they also have fewer people registered with them. This means that you may be able to identify an opening that doesn't have nearly as many applicants. It's also easier for employers to find your CV.

Take a few hours out to register with and bookmark your preferred job search engines. Once you're done, all that you'll need to do in the future is perform a few checks each evening and apply for the vacancies that are of interest to you.
