Use these steps as you identify your target sites and resources, and keep using them while you are conducting your job search

  1. Visit the large recruiting and job-listing databases first. The number of positions, the variety of occupations and fields, and the keyword-searchable indexes make it very easy for you to search these databases fast and effectively.

  2. Move on to the smaller, more exclusive recruiting and job-listing services. Identify those that have listings for your occupation and discipline, and bookmark them.

    Learn how to bookmark. Note: if you are using a lab computer you will need to save bookmarks on a diskette.

  3. Use the indexers and search engines to begin locating resources specific to your occupation and field. Use these sites to locate specific organizations and companies to contact and to look for even smaller, more exclusive collections of job listings.
