Find a Job

Below are links to several of the most comprehensive career and job search web sites. These links will help you find job opportunities, research employers, post resumes, and learn various job search techniques. However, remember that only two percent of jobs are actually obtained through the Internet (Drake Beam Morin). It can be a great job search tool but should not replace other job search strategies like networking, attending career fairs, performing information interviews, etc.
