By Darius Soyer. Finding a job after you graduate from secondary school can be difficult especially when you’re unsure what should be done. Without guidance, you may take a long time searching for job vacancies and when you do find them, you learn that you are not prepared to apply. From my experience, I will say what are the best ways to find job vacancies and what things you should have to make this search easier.

Things you should have for job vacancies
These are some necessary and non-necessary things that will aid in your job search.
Id Card – Having an Identification Card is absolutely necessary and is used in most if not all work places. This allows you to be identified and states things about you such as your name, nationality and date of birth.
Resume – Depending on the job, this may not always be needed but it is great to have when applying for jobs. It is an asset that properly identifies your capabilities and qualifications for employers to use when deciding to hire you or not.
Driver’s License – Not all jobs will require one but it is beneficial to have a driver’s license. Some jobs require drivers, like delivery drivers and some sales representatives. It is significant as you may be picked over others for that simple fact.
Computer – Since all jobs are not in person or require intense physical labour, a computer is an important asset to have. Working from home becomes a possibility and it allows for more diversity in the jobs you can obtain.

Send in your resume
Places hiring may place flyers on the outside of their building alerting people of their need for workers. If it takes your interest, go in, talk to people and you may walk out with an application.
If you believe that you are qualified for a job, it can never hurt to send your resume in to the Human Resources Manager of that place. Not all jobs are advertised, marketing yourself and gaining necessary skills can be a wonderful asset to have when looking for jobs. Put yourself out there and drop resumes off at businesses in which you are interested.
