Gone are the days that people solely rely on newspapers when searching for jobs, looking into good deals or posting their goods for trade, if not for word of mouth recommendations. The country’s number 1 newspaper, dedicated and diverse at 27, gives their readers more options.
Job Hunting in the Digital Age
I get a few calls or recommendations to undergo the hiring process on jobs related to my field. But before I step into an office building wearing my best smart caaasual wear and my biggest smile, I have to ask for money (if not. find other means) to pay for my fare, food, prepaid load and to print out my resume. And it’s not a one-time thing thousands of undergraduates and fresh graduates go through every day.
Good thing that technology provides ease in job hunting: people spend less resources and everyone has equal opportunities (click to tweet!).
