Find An Online Employment Agency And Travel The World

Mar 9, 2008
The days of "a job for life" have gone. On average people change their job at least seven times in their working life and this rate is increasing. Fortunately with the advent of the internet and online employment agencies changing jobs has never been easier. Now you can make you resume visible to hundreds of prospective employers. The trick lies in finding the online employment agency that is right for you.

Fire up your favorite search engine and search using the phrase "employment agencies" and you will find millions of links (9.8 million on Google at the time of writing). Just browse down the list and you will find many online employment agencies that offer purely local job searches or even offer the chance to search worldwide.

Jobsabroad.com is one of those online employment agencies that list jobs on a worldwide basis. Here you can find a job in virtually any country in the world for both long and short term contracts. They also list openings for volunteer workers on many charitable projects. In addition they offer valuable information concerning travelling, visas and related subjects.

Hot.jobs.yahoo.com is another useful online employment agency. You'll will need a Yahoo.com account in order to reap all its benefits but you can get one at no cost that includes an email account. The same account will also allow you to register with job searching related Yahoo user groups and forums

Monster.com is undoubtable the largest online employment agency on the net. Their choice of countries is not as extensive as jobsabroad.com but they do cover Europe, the Pacific Rim and North America and have a multi language feature. They also have a huge amount of informational material.

All these online employment agencies will let you post your resume online. After approval it will be placed in their database. This database is searchable by employers looking for employees. Usually your resume is posted by filling in an on-screen form but sometimes it must be attached to an email. When an employer sees your resume and likes what he sees, he will approach the employment agency who will then contact you.

You can also apply for any job that is posted on the employment agency's website. Again, you will have to submit a resume and normally a covering letter as well. The agency would pass these onto the advertiser and contact you accordingly.

Before submitting your details online check that the employment agency is a legitimate one. Several cases of identity theft have been reported involving websites purporting to be employment agencies but were in reality frauds.
