Currently, one of the most common tools of the job search is searching online resources. There are more than five million sites on the Internet and new sites are added every day!
The Internet provides a wealth of information and resources for career and employment exploration. Keep in mind that online job resources should be used to augment your job search, not to replace other traditional methods, such as networking.
It is also important that you learn to discern which online job resources are most valuable to you. Job Placement & Career Services strongly recommends that you acclimate yourself to online research and job searching by developing the computer skills you need to target Internet career and job sites effectively.
To get you started, click on "Local and National Job Postings" (on your left) for a list of some of the most popular websites. These are just a small sampling of the thousands of websites on the World Wide Web related to careers and employment.
The Job Placement & Career Services office updates this list regularly, but if you find that one of the websites on the list is incorrect or no longer exists, please contact Job Placement & Career Services at 412.469.6214.
