Internet, Newspaper and Networking

When you begin your job search, where do you go? If you turn only to the internet and local newspaper, you are limiting your possibilities. Newspapers do not contain all of the available job openings that exist. Many positions are filled internally, or inside the company, and never reach the outside world to the classified ads. Internet job postings may be old and the position filled. There may be scams associated with internet jobs, the “work at home” ads are notorious for being unreliable. If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. The vast majority of job seekers find jobs by interacting with people, otherwise known as “networking”. To find out detailed information about using networking properly, Google this excellent piece by Rachel Zupek ,“10 Ways to Network Properly”, featured in Career Builders.
