Direct Search

You may decide to contact companies directly - this shows that you are actively searching for work and are happy to work in the company that you've sent an application to.

Applying via company websites or by sending your CV with a covering letter takes more effort than using a recruitment agency but it's a great way at getting noticed. Personnel managers hate paying commission to recruitment agencies so as long as you have the right skillset you'll have preference over an agency candidate. Above all stay motivated and disciplined.

Adverts
Responding to an advert and completing application forms or submitting your details online allow you to be considered for the advertised position.

Mailing A Select Group Of Companies
Cold calling, eMailing, or even mailing as many companies as possible is another approach. Be prepared for rejections and make sure you keep meticulous records.
