Reminder: while online applications make life easier, it isn’t often effective. Thousands–if not millions–of others are applying for the same positions. Spend the majority of your time networking, both online and in person. Studies show that the majority of jobs are obtained through networking, not applying online.
One word about security: the only valid place to give out your Social Security number is when applying for federal jobs through USAJOBS, or directly with a government agency. But here’s a caution, there have been security breaches associated with government sites. If any other job site asks for your Social Security number, don’t give it out.
