Effective job search is a must in order to start applying for the right jobs.
Look for jobs that you know you can do; either things that you have done previously, or something that you know you could do using your transferable skills.
Before you start your job search you need to have an idea fixed in your mind of the salary you want/need, the sort of company you want to work for, the area you want to work in how far you are prepared to travel.
Be prepared to travel a bit. Generally it is expected that you have at least one hour each way on a good day.
Once you have a good idea in your mind of what you want, you can start looking for your perfect job.
If you are mostly using the Internet for your job search, you could still use the phone to call agencies and keep in contact with friends and doing some networking
If you are not using the Internet, then newspapers, shop windows, the job machines at the job centres, libraries and networking are the best option.
If you like the sound of a job but are not sure about it, call the employer to have a quick chat with HR/Personnel. It shows that you are keen and pro-active. If you are invited to an interview, they already know you briefly from your phone call.
