Meet Local Businesses’ in Person
Take a few hours in your job search by hopping into your car, take public transit or simply walk to either streets with industry- heavy business or go to the downtown core. Look around. Many businesses advertise their jobs from signs right outside! They want you to pop in. They want to meet their candidates face-to-face–this might be the best way to getting your next job.

Even if some businesses don’t advertise a job opening outside or online their door try going in and find out more about them. Sometimes businesses simply don’t advertize their job openings because they use their own network: employees and word-of-mouth. By going in and learning more about a company may impress them. This is one easy way to tap into the local job market.
