JOB SEARCH TIPS
Khouloud Khammassi
Tunisian Fulbright Society
Fulbright FLTA 2007-2008
JOB SEARCH STRATEGY
• The job search isn’t a linear
process.
• A job seeker should start
looking for jobs as early as
possible while still in
school.
• An internship while still at
school is a good way to
start. Social media provides
an efficient way to spot
potential
employers/companies.
Essentials of Business Communication, p. 373
JOB SEARCH RESOURCES
A number of websites provide job seekers with opportunities to publish their
résumés and/or browse announcements:
 Career Builder: www.CareerBuilder.com
 LinkedIn: www.LinkedIn.com
 Monster: www.monster.com
 College Recruiter: www.CollegeRecruiter.com
 Career Journal: www.CareerJournal.com
 Bayt: www.bayt.com
 Keejob: www.keejob.com
 The Washington Post: https://jobs.washingtonpost.com/
 The Chronicle of Higher Education:
https://chroniclevitae.com/job_search/new?cid=chenav
JOB SEARCH RESOURCES, CONT.,
Beware when making your CVs and/or résumés public. Do
not share personal information that may compromise your
online or real-life safety.
The address, date of birth, and financial (e.g. banking)
information should not be shared.
JOB SEARCH RESOURCES, CONT.,
Traditional job search strategies may still help in finding a job and/or an
internship:
 Employment Agencies: (bureau d’emploi) locate the nearest employment
agency in your town. Such offices are state-run in Tunisia. Consider:
L’Agence Tunisienne de Cooperation Technique for international jobs
(teaching positions mainly)
 ManPower: (private employment agency with offices in several cities)
http://www.manpowergroup.com/wps/wcm/connect/manpowergroup-
en/home/about/global-operations/country_tunisia#.VVnCXJMZP1A
 Education for Employment: a non-profit with offices in several countries
(office in Lac I in Tunisia) http://www.efe.org/our-network/tunisia
JOB SEARCH RESOURCES, CONT.,
 Newspapers: La Presse (www.lapresse.tn), a major source of such
information in Tunisia, especially the Sunday edition
 Announcements in Publications of Professional Organizations
 Direct Contact: contact companies in which you’re interested. You
can always send an unsolicited application.
 Campus interviews with visiting companies representatives
 Career Fairs (local or regional)
 Network: use your family’s and personal network; use your
instructors’ and mentors’ help
SOCIAL MEDIA AND JOBS
 Yes, Social media can secure you a job, indirectly, but it does bring you opportunities.
 Being present on social media isn’t enough. Interactivity is what’s rewarding.
Your social media presence should be active and not passive.
Social Media Presence
Active Passive
Sharing (as well as Liking) Liking only
Positively and/or objectively
commenting on ideas
Disagreeing and attacking others
Thanking and spreading positive
vibes
Discouraging or condescending
others and sending negative vibes
Using clear and eloquent writing
style
Mixing codes (languages)
Sharing informative content Sharing irrelevant content
Using one’s real identity (name and
professional picture)
Using fake profiles (fake names and
pictures)
SOCIAL MEDIA AND JOBS, CONT.,
 Almost what happens in real life takes place on
social media too. People will get to trust you when
they have several interactions with you.
 Make those interactions meaningful. Bring to your
network the people who may help you get the job
you want.
 Share content that reflects your expertise and
professional interests. Interact by commenting and
asking the right, deeply thought-out questions.
REMEMBER!
 A job search is NOT linear.
 It should be started as soon as you begin university to
guarantee satisfying results (even by as little as
familiarizing with the resources).
 Your CV/résumé must be kept up-to-date.
 Social media can bring you opportunities. Use it to your
advantage.
