Search Strategies

Self PicThere are many ways to seek out employment opportunities. Many jobs are never posted to a job board; in today’s competitive job market, you need to think outside the box.

Get creative and find other ways to source employment opportunities. Building relationships with people (networking) is a very effective way to tap into the “hidden job market”. Find ways to network through social media, networking events, career fairs, and on-campus recruitment.

Monitor our events pages for potential networking opportunities and visit UOIT’s Career Services Centre website for information about university wide career events:

Use more than one strategy when you’re looking for work — you never know which one will connect you with the job you are looking for!
