Job Search Resources
The job search databases listed below are excellent resources for finding local or national job listings. Most sites will also allow you to post your resume. Employers and job recruiters scan these sites from time to time, looking for appealing resumes and promising employees. There are also many sites dedicated to your career choice where you can also post your resume, work with recruiters or temp agencies, or obtain career advice. To get a good idea about the types of jobs you can apply for and the types of companies you can work for, think about attending a career fair. Search through career fair websites to find one near you. If you lack significant experience in your field, internship sites are one way to find it.
Internships are a great way to make contacts and meet potential employers. If all of this leaves you wondering where to start and how to direct your energy, you can also consider hiring a career counselor. Your future success will depend on how well you can take the job search strategies and put them into practice finding legitimate job leads.
