For example, you can begin with general job sites that list employment opportunities in all major career categories nationwide. General job sites most popular with both employers and job-hunters include (in alphabetical order):
If you are looking for a job in a specific field like IT, nursing, criminal justice, etc., you should check out the job sites that focus on those particular industries. Here are some of the most popular:
Finally, you should look at one or two sites devoted to jobs in your geographic area. On your favorite search engine (Google, Yahoo, etc.), simply search “Jobs [City/State].”
Remember, not all available jobs are posted online. Even in today’s Web 2.0 world, nothing beats personal networking. Always stay in touch with family, friends, fellow students and ex-coworkers to get first crack at new career openings.
