Before we run the list of job sites for you, here is some advice for your jobsearch:[break][break]

Get Organized!

You may at first think that your notes in emails will be enough or that you will remember the jobs you have applied for and the resumes you have sent. Believe me, you won’t. After a few weeks all will become very fuzzy and you will start to mix up companies and positions and the recruiter who does give you a call will notice and it won’t look good.Young beautiful woman using a laptop computer at home

Also your spreadsheet is not enough to help you out. Spreadsheet are not designed for this kind of work and you need to get something more sophisticated than that. Remember you need to keep track of jobs you applied to, resumes you sent, cover letters you created, company information you researched, information on the people in the companies that you know, information on the people in the companies that will talk to you, who they are, what their background is, notes about conversations, register of references and who you have asked for what position to be a reference. etc etc. Sales organizations have this kind of software for their sales calls but that may not work for you. Try Jibber Jobber they have a great free option that may be of great help for you. (btw I don’t get paid a penny to recommend services, if I do I’ll tell you honestly).

So with that now it is over to:[break][break]

The Search

When you search for jobs, you probably want not only many links to potential jobs but also relevant links to jobs that would be perfect for you.

Luckily there are lots of websites to help you out. Not all websites are the same though. Some are Job Boards, those are sites where employers actually post jobs for a fee, and some are search engines, those are sites that roam the web and search for jobs and then link to them. Some are general, that is they list any job they can find, some are specific to a certain group of jobs, or a certain geographical area or both. There are companies who do not like to put their jobs out in the open search engines and so there are also search engines to help you find jobs listed only on company websites. Most website use the automated programs that roam the internet for jobs. Some jobboard websites have people looking at the listings and verifying the information before posting them. These websites usually require you to become a member, either paid or just registered, and then you can see their jobs and apply for them. Some jobs are not posted at all and recruiters, searchers and headhunters roam the various internet sites and any other resources they can lay their hands on to find resumes with the keywords that may be a fit for the jobs they have to offer.

We can help you find your way through this forest of search engines and jobsites.[break][break]
