					     Your Guide to Using the
     Internet for Job Search
The internet is a useful resource for job searching, even if you’re not planning to relocate
after graduation. You can use the internet to do company research, learn about
professional associations and find job leads through job banks. Several websites provide
information about job search issues. Check out the following sites
for some general information about job search:

www.collegegrad.com                                  www.jobweb.com
jobsearch.about.com                                  hotjobs.yahoo.com




Many companies are posting job openings online or on the company website, as opposed to
putting them in the newspaper or using other methods of advertisement. If you are
interested in employment with a specific business or organization, check its website for
employment opportunities.
