Use the internet to your advantage!
- First, always be cautious. Anyone can pose as an employer or company to collect personal information. Never believe sites which promise you’ll find a job with them immediately and charge high fees. Never put your Social Security number online unless it’s a government site. Even so, those government sites have been hacked.
- The larger search engines offer links to recommended career sites, such as MSN.
- Using employer’s sites is very helpful. Again, you’ll want to verify it’s actually their site before proceeding. You can access job openings and staff to answer questions, along with background information about the company useful in an interview.
