пЃ® Visit the large information databases first.
пЃ® Move on to the smaller, more exclusive resources and
services, including online resource guides and sites
dedicated to your field or industry.
пЃ® Use the search engines to locate new and hidden
resources specific to your occupation and field.
 Check out employer’s website for job listings.
пЃ® Shut off the computer and spend some time with your
family, friends, and yourself.
 If I’m procrastinating in my job search, why? How
can I overcome this/these barrier(s)?
пЃ® Whom can I seek out for support with my job
search?
Types of Online Job Sites
 Super Sites – These are the mega sites with thousands of jobs
and thousands of resumes, used by thousands of employers.
Typically, job seekers use them for free. ex.
www.hotjobs.yahoo.com www.monster.com
www.careerbuilder.com
 Job Search Engines – They collect job postings from other sites
and aggregate them into one database to be searched by job
seekers. Ex. www.indeed.com & www.simplyhired.com,
www.jobster.com
 The Niche Sites – These sites serve smaller specific population:
a location, profession, age group, industry, interest.
 Online Classifies or Want Ads – Intelligencer Journal

Choosing an Online Job Site:
Questions to Think About
пЃ® What type of information are you finding on the
site?
пЃ®
пЃ®
Is it business listings, academics, or nonprofits?
Is it just job listings or is there other useful information
to be found?
пЃ® Are the job listings dated so I know when they
were added?
пЃ®
пЃ®
пЃ®
Responding to old ads is not only a waste of your time,
employers really dislike getting applications and
inquiries about jobs they filled a while ago.
If you don't see any dates, check the information for
employers posting here. How much do they pay and
how long will the jobs be posted?
How often do they update the listings.
Choosing an Online Job Site :
Questions to Think About, cont.
пЃ® Who runs this service?
Is there information about the people who run this site that I
can read?
пЃ® What's their background (recruiter, industry specialist,
someone looking for a fast buck)?
пЃ® Is there a name, address, or phone number for contacting
them with questions?
пЃ® Do I know anyone who has used this service?
пЃ® What did they use this for? How did it work for them?
пЃ® Did they like what they found?
пЃ® Do they feel it was helpful and worth the time spent here?
пЃ® If there's a fee for this service, is it worth the cost?
пЃ® What will my money get me?
пЃ® What is the refund policy?
пЃ® What promises are they making, and are these promises
reasonable?
пЃ® How do they handle complaints?
пЃ®

пЃ®
пЃ®
пЃ®

пЃ®
пЃ®
Cut-and-paste into the body of an e-mail message to
send your resume to potential employers, etc.
Cut-and-paste into the resume/profile forms on Web
job sites and employer Web sites.
пЃ® HTML format turns your resume into a Web page,
viewable in a Web browser, and allowing you to add
bolding, color, and other special formatting for:
пЃ®
пЃ®
Your personal resume Web page
Copy-and-paste into the resume/profile forms on the
Web job sites and employer Web sites that allow use of
HTML.
Make Your Resume “Cyber-Safe”
Protect your identity and your current job, if you have one.
пЃ® Remove your standard "contact information"
пЃ® Replace the contact information with an e-mail address that is
harder to trace to you personally, like one of the Web-based email addresses
пЃ® Remove your current employer's name; replace it with an
accurate, but generic, description
пЃ® If your job title is unique, replace your title with, again, an
accurate, but generic" title
Note: Taking these steps may make it a bit more difficult for the
Recruiter or potential employer to reach you, at least initially,
because of the limited contact information.
