We wanted a chance to share with you all the different ways which you can use digital technology to enhance your job search. But why should you take advantage digital and use it for finding your next job?

Our contractors are, by the nature of their roles, geographically mobile and the various digital channels now available mean that you can browse through and apply for roles at your leisure all over the globe, no matter where you are in the world and no matter what the time difference is.

Recruiters’ own websites
When searching for a job in any industry, it is always best to go directly to recruiters’ websites. For example, on Fircroft.com, all of our jobs are uploaded onto the site on a daily basis so you can apply at all hours of the day or night.

Search and apply on the move from your mobile
Mobile technology means you can now apply for jobs on the go; wherever you are, whether onshore or offshore. Our mobile site allows all registered candidates to browse and apply for all our jobs on both your tablet and mobile; derestricting the job search from only a desktop or laptop computer.


Social Media
No list outlining the benefits of digital tools would be complete without mentioning social media. Whilst Facebook, Google+ and Twitter are all great places to enhance your job search by keeping abreast of industry developments and company news, LinkedIn remains the best social network to use for any job search as it is the network used most by recruiters.

By making sure your LinkedIn profile is kept complete and updated, you can use it as an enhanced online CV, acting as a magnet for recruiters to find you. Thereby, taking away some of the hard work involved in a job search conducted by more traditional methods.

If Twitter is still your preferred network, @FircroftJobs is definitely worth a follow as it is dedicated to just our new jobs which are tweeted daily.

So we hope we’ve convinced you that digital is a valued platform to conduct your job search from, in fact, why not start now by browsing our available jobs.
