On the Internet you will find many general recruitment platforms with jobs in all sectors.On these portals, you can usually search by location (city or region), as well as by keyword (e.g. job title, occupation, role, skills, company name, occupational status). The search results displayed will guide you to the individual job advertisements for which you can apply directly.
The application procedures are very different and vary depending on the job portal. Some platforms will take you directly to the companies’ career pages; others allow you to apply directly (after successful login) or you will be provided with a reference number which you can then use when applying to the company.

Career networks and social recruitment
Career networks such as LinkedIn or Xing already have over 7.5 million users worldwide and give you the opportunity to create your own applicant profile, which you can manage at any time. Known as social networks in the business world, these portals allow you to network directly with companies or their HR managers.
The concept is very simple: you create an account and select the status that says you are currently looking for a job. This status is displayed to HR managers and is your chance to be found as a specialist and manager. You can also actively search for vacancies in the network’s job portal. You can set “job notifications” while conducting your job search, so that you will be informed when new vacancies are available in your field.
If a job advertisement appeals to you, apply directly in the network with just one click. You can store and manage your application documents at any time.
Search for regional companies and their HR managers in your industry on the Internet! As soon as you have researched a contact person, message them directly in the career network and ask them to talk to you about job vacancies!
Another possibility offered by job search networks are “network meetings” and groups according to interests. Organised according to topic and industry, you can join these free of charge, get to know people who already work in your field or dream company and network with them.
You can also join groups and sign up for job events on Facebook and similar sites. Simply enter keywords such as “jobs in Berlin” or “Berlin job fair” in the network's search bar. With one click you will find all the relevant information you need to structure your job search. Take advantage of this opportunity!
