Online job portals

Job portals are only a bridge between job seekers and job providers but companies can be deceptive to the extent that even job portals might not be aware of. Some openings might actually not exist while some jobs differ from what they mention in the websites altogether.

Comparing compensation with other companies – seek friends, expert help or research online to find how much other companies are paying for a comparatively same kind of job. This will help you in negotiating with your employer effectively at the time of interview. Also, avoid getting paid lower than your counterparts.
Continued online presence
It will be a long wait after applying for a variety of jobs. But make sure you never miss out when companies get back to you. Spend some time online, every day, to check continuously if anyone has reverted back to your applications. Also, it’s not bad to send reminders to those who have never replied back even after a week of your application. Never miss to check your personal emails and job portals for you may not know how recruiters are contacting you.
The Web sites of leading companies
Some leading companies advertise on their own website rather than showing vacancies in job portals.
