Job hunting in Melbourne seems to be a bit of a challenge for a bunch of us at the moment and I suspect is driving us insane!!
So I wondered what's working for you and what's been a complete waste of time and effort!!
From what I can gather sending an anonymous letter of application and CV online, even if it's an advertised job, isn't really getting a response, even from Agencies.
For me I've found that speaking to the recruitment consultant before sending your CV is a lot more successful. I've also found that telephoning and talking to the consultant at least once a week keeps you in the forefront of their mind when they get a new job in....This has gotten me a couple of interviews in Australia, both recently and in the past.
Has anyone found a successful way of hunting for those jobs that are never advertised? Is it a case of knocking on actual door, or are speculative letters and emails getting any response?
Ideas, tips and tricks, gratefully received.... Feel free to moan and groan too!!
