Employment Opportunities
Employment opportunities refer to job openings; an employment opportunity presents an unemployed person with the opportunity to secure a job. Employment opportunities are a broad concept—they are present in every industry or sector and are awarded to candidates with various skill sets and experience levels. That being said, given the scarcity of employment opportunities in the United States—as well as the competition for such openings—the ability to secure employment is exceedingly arduous. 
Employment opportunities constitute a vehicle to provide work for any person in any industry for any type of work schedule—employment opportunities are made available for full-time employment, part-time employment and casual employment. 

How are Employment Opportunities Circulated?
Employment opportunities are offered by employers (companies, corporations or business entities that provide work) and promulgated via publications (newspapers), recruiting agencies, online job boards and other resources made available to the public. Employment opportunities are circulated to the public to effectively match unemployed persons with jobs that fit their skills, experience and interests. Employment opportunities are also broadcasted to fill gaps. When an employer needs qualified workers, they will publicize their employment opportunities to maintain productivity. 
The process of securing employment is procedural in nature; a candidate—depending on the employment opportunity—must go through an interview process, a background check and a training period to secure work. The process attached to the employment opportunity will vary based on the underlying job’s characteristics. For instance, a part-time or casual job will typically require the filing of an application at the tangible employer’s location—these employment opportunities are typically secured in an expedited fashion when compared to full-time employment opportunities or professional employment opportunities.


Applying for Employment Opportunities:
Through the advent of the Internet, applying for employment opportunities has never been easier. Search engines and job posting websites enable users to apply for employment opportunities based on location or industry—a user may narrow their search based on their desired employment opportunity, their location or both. The act of applying for an employment opportunity online; however, is highly competitive—the ease of firing-out electronic resumes to employers gives way to a flooding of applications. 
Because of the influx of online applications, perhaps a better way to apply for employment opportunities are through professional recruiting agencies or by directly applying via the employer’s website or physical address. Regardless of the means, all employment opportunities aim to match a qualified worker with a job that fits the individual’s skill-set and experience. As such, it is essential that an applicant sift through employment opportunities that match the skills and experience present on their resume and cover letter.
