Looking to kick your job search up a notch? There are a few things you can do. Here are some tips on how to use Workopolis to get a leg up on the competition.

First, search for jobs using industry-specific job titles 

This is the easiest way to find great opportunities, but don’t worry if you don’t have a specific job title in mind. You can have just as much success searching by company name, job function, skills, or job type.

Use filters to refine your search

Once you have the necessary keywords, use filters to refine your search further. You can, for example, narrow down the search to a specific location, career level, or industry. You can also use the Advanced Job Search to apply filters to get specific results.

Be strategic

Employers actually post more often on Thursdays, so if you’re looking for the very latest job opportunities, focus on that day.
