Where to Search For a Job

Are you tired of the same old job advertisements and offerings on www.indeed.com and www.simplyhired.com? Why not try some news ones that I have found.

There are job search sites for everything and best of all, you can set up job agents to go to your email account. If you haven't yet, you may want to set up one email account for applying for jobs.

www.linkup.com - a place for those REAL jobs

www.jobdig.com - another good one

www.Raytheon.com

www.lockheedmartin.com

Don't forget to set up a LinkedIn account (www.LinkedIn.com) and network by connections to others. LinkedIn now has groups you can subscribe to for jobs. Co-workers from old employment are a great way to receive recommendations. Personally, I take those recommendations, copy them into a word document and attach them to online applications when you can attach more than just your resume. I also incorporate them into a cover letter because good recommendations are the best references.

This blog post will be an ongoing list of helpful sites for jobs.

If anyone reading along can add to this list, please, by all means, leave a comment and I'll add it. This isn't a list just for me, it's for EVERYONE out there.

In addition to this list, check out your local workforce center and see what they might have - these are usually located through a link on your state's unemployment page. Also, set up a job agent with the state, city where you live or close by, and your county. Government positions are mostly available for any position.

If you are on Twitter, may I suggest to you to search for #{your state} #jobs. If you use TweetDeck, you can have an extra column with that search. In the past few days, I have used those hashtags and applied for at least 10+ jobs. If there are other ways to search on Twitter or Facebook, please leave a comment.

WE STOOD UP AND WERE HEARD!

WE'RE NOT LAZY, HEAR US ROAR!

REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER!
