How to find a job

Updated: Nov 15, 2020

When a job becomes available in a company there is a job vacancy, until someone takes that job on and fills that position. Employers advertise job vacancies as a way of recruiting people to their company and to fill their jobs. Employers advertise job vacancies in newspapers, job centres, internet sites or recruitment agencies and so people find out the availability of jobs in these places.
