Job Search Links
The SEARCH is ON!

This page is designed to help you link to either Internet Job Boards or to companies who have current openings. Remember that posting and praying is not as effective as networking your way to a position. However, Internet job boards can inform you of companies who are looking for talent. My book, "RecruiterGuy's Guide to Finding a Job" takes you step by step from the beginning of your job search to resume writing (with sample action verbs in the Appendix) to networking and interviewing to your first day on the job. You may purchase "RecruiterGuy's Guide to Finding a Job" on Amazon or www.RecruiterGuyGuide.com for $13.95.

This is a good starting point for your search.

Internet posting HINTS for your resume:  

As a contract recruitment consulting firm, one of the tools that we use to identify potential candidates is the Internet Job Boards. These hints are based on our experience. At the bottom of your resume, type the word "Keywords" and then type all key words that apply to all of your experience and the type of job that you seek.  It is important that the words that describe your experience on your resume match the words used in the job description. This practice will help a contract recruiter consultant to find you amongst all of the resumes on the Internet site.

Many candidates are not aware that they need to refresh their resumes on the Internet site. Resumes are submitted to the Job Boards and the same that happens on a recruiter's desk, the later resumes are piled on top of the older resumes. Therefore, you can move yours back to the top by refreshing it. In Monster, there is a tab to "renew" your resume. In "Hotjobs" and "CareerBuilder" and other sites, simply click on "Edit" and then click on "save". This action will, momentarily, make your resume the most recent. Refresh, your resume at least once a week.

Please note. Internet job board searches by candidates should be considered the equivalent of direct mail marketing by firms. Very few positive responses will come of them typically. Networking will be a much more effective way of finding your next position.
