Are you looking for an affordable and fast way to apply for opportunities online? Here are a few tips to help you.
As a student or unemployed person you probably need to look for study and work opportunities on a regular basis.
If you don't have a stable internet connection accessing these opportunities can be difficult and applying for these positions can be costly.
So where can you go for easy internet access? Here are three ideas to get you started:
Why not visit your local library.
The internet speed might not be the fastest but it is free and it allows you to search for career opportunities in a space that is quiet and relatively private.
Find out from your library what you need to do in order to make use of this service.
You might be required to get a library card or create an account on the library website first.
Users are generally given 45 minutes per session so use your time wisely.
These are locations in your city that provide free wifi.
Often restaurants, coffee shops, or public areas provide this service.
In the Western Cape alone 50 public wifi hotspots have been recorded.
You can Google wifi hotspots in your area or check your local government website for more clues.
Family and Friends
Use your networks to your advantage.
If you need help don't be afraid to ask friends and family to either download important information on your behalf or to allow you to use their data.
As a student you have to learn to make use of every resource in order to reach your dreams.
Don't be shy, ask for help and appeal to those closest to you for assistance.
Most people have been in your shoes and will be eager to help you get ahead.
