Sending off CVs

Here are the 40 or so envelopes I've prepared today. They are all stamped and ready to go. They have 1 CV and 1 cover letter explaining my reasons for applying. It's all pretty general in the cover letter. I thought that I would spend some time writing a good cover letter , so that I would grab the agencies attention , all of this I did yesterday.
And then I finished off the CV. So now I just need to trawl through a few newspapers tomorrow. I think the Irish Examiner has a pretty big jobs section, so that will be the first port of call at the news agents tomorrow. Then I am going to start with the online applications.

I have some ideas as how to track these applications and hopefully I will be sharing these with you in the next few days and weeks. I realise that for getting a job in ireland I will need some sort of system, to track things. But you are going to have to stay tuned for that. ;)

Try the CV databases rather than post. A Good CV (keyword rich) will make your phone HOT for a week. Most of the Irish Job Boards have a CV database. Some are good (and used) some are not. So put your CV in all of them. YOu will see the effect withing 24 to 48 hours.

Your site is a wonderful source for having an unlimited job data. Actually such job data are very useful for us to get global job data instantly with minimum efforts. Todays online job posting sites are playing a vital role in reducing unemployment rate. You may be glad to know that a new service named as Sromobazar.com have been recently introduced in Bangladesh to enrich the overseas education and job services. This site is also very important because here international job seekers can get their desired job by job bidding procedure. I’m enjoying all of these sites.
