Many argue, quite reasonably, that a rapidly evolving global economy has had an overall negative effect on the USA job market. Industrial jobs, once the backbone of the middle class, have nearly all gone across borders and overseas. The days of punching in and plugging away are essentially over. You'll need to do better than that. For those knowing where to look there are jobs in the market waiting for you.
The power of the internet has made job searches more efficient and convenient than ever.
The World Wide Web enables us to find jobs anywhere in any field faster and more efficiently than ever. Here are a few of the best job search engines out there. The best idea is to search on as many engines as possible, rather than just one.
Of all the job search sites out there, Indeed.com seems to be the most comprehensive both on the national and local level. So it's perfect whether you're looking for a job within 5 miles of your house, or in a different location 2,000 miles away. It even has a section for people to post their resumes, allowing for easy headhunting.
You may remember their commercials from years ago... they're still around. One of the most familiar, and possibly still the largest job search site out there. Like the above site, there is also a section for resume posting and browsing. You may ask what the difference is... truthfully, you won't really know unless you find out for yourself.
If you're tired of all the fraudulent hucksters pitching you pyramid schemes on many other sites, you will be thrilled to learn that Linkup.com fully vets all of their millions of postings before posting them. In addition, much of the content of this site comes direct from the employers, cutting out spammy middlemen from the equation. It's definitely worth a look.
Linkedin is a site to build your network, but can also be very helpful when looking for a job. Start now building your network so that when you need to tap into it you have a broad and interested network to reach out to for connections.
