Remember to check for apps related to employment searching agents in your home country. For example, if you are living in Nigeria, it’s better to search for employment at TradeStable’s job vacancies page than looking at InfoJobs, since the first will gave you broader and better results. As the saying goes “when the going gets tough, the tough get going”, so you should toughen up, forget those old newspaper and magazine ads, and start using technology to your advantage.
