Once you've identified what career areas you're interested in, your next step is to gather information about potential employers and opportunities.
To be an effective job hunter you need to choose the methods that are most appropriate for your target career area. Searching for vacancies using Google is not always the best way to find the job you want. The best job hunters do not wait for the jobs to appear; they are proactive in tracking down the best opportunities.
For an overview of both 'reactive' and 'proactive' job hunting techniques see the Careers Group Guide to Jobhunting.
