Be specific as much as possible when searching online for a job to get the best results. If you want to find tutoring jobs full-time for example, on Google, you can type the following into the search bar: Maths tutoring jobs full-time Toronto Canada or Spanish education jobs part time Los Angeles California. 


If you are okay with working far away from home you can do a more general search, for example, Biology tutoring jobs full-time Florida or Information Technology education jobs full-time Australia.


Finding a job on Google is much easier for larger countries. This includes countries such as Canada, United States, and the United Kingdom.

How To Enhance Your Searches


Places With The Same Name


Same Name Places

When searching for jobs from specific locations, please note that the name may not be unique. For example, when searching for employment in the country of Jamaica, please note that there is a place name ‘Jamaica New York’, ‘Jamaica Plain’, which is entirely different from the country Jamaica.


Therefore to fix this issue instead of searching for Jamaica only, you can search for Kingston Jamaica. For example, Mechanic full-time jobs in Kingston Jamaica. Another example is, in the country Belize, there is an area named ‘San Pedro’. In the United States, there is also an area with the name ‘San Pedro’.



Use Quotations
