I love this part! After working in HR for two years and looking for my next job opportunity, I started to get creative with job boards, posting my résumé on agency and employment websites. I ended up working as a contractor for Hays Recruiting Experts for four years. I still receive emails from their consultants asking if I’m available to take on another HR contract!
Job boards are helpful if you’re just starting your job search. You will find a variety of industry sectors, network connections and more.
