It's not luck...

We're not going to pretend it's a doddle; that a job on totaljobs will simply drop into your lap. Finding a job isn't necessarily that simple. But there are ways of making it a lot easier. After all, it's not luck!

Getting started

Whatever your situation - if you're out of work and looking at a number of different kinds of job, or you're in work and looking for that next step up – there are things you can do to really boost your chances. And that boils down to just three things:

  • Getting a great CV
  • Creating a thorough jobseeker profile on totaljobs, and
  • Knowing how to make every application and interview a brilliant one
But first, let's take a look at how the whole job market and online recruitment process works. It'll really help you understand the dos and don'ts of job-hunting that we'll then explain to you.

So, how does it all work?

We've created a short video to show you exactly how totaljobs works - the kinds of companies that use us, how jobs get put on there, how you can search for them, how you can find out when new jobs have been posted, and so on.

Jobs for you

We have a staggering 90,000 jobs on the site at any time, so you can be pretty sure we've always got jobs in your area, at the salary you're looking for and in the industries you're most suited to. One key thing to remember here is that we have hundreds of new jobs coming on to the site every day, so it's essential you set up job alerts – we can then email you the best new jobs as they come in.

Put yourself in the shop window

It's also important to realise employers actually come on to totaljobs and search for candidates, they don't always just post a job ad and wait for the applications to flood in. So you need to make sure your CV and profile are in great shape and up to date, so when employers find you on the site, they like what they see.
