Online Job Search 101
Hey Seniors, listen up. Now’s the time to look for a job. If you’re not a senior yet, you should be searching for an internship. Here’s an opinionated guide to the maze of job search websites:
– Note themselves as “the employment solution.” They’re free and it’s simple to type in the keyword for the job you’re looking for. A quick example, if you type in ‘Advertising’ in NYC 58 jobs come up. This includes internships and jobs ranging from entry-level to senior level positions.
– Numerous students think this is a sketchy way to find a job but it just depends on what you’re looking for.
– Obviously avoid the ads that say “If you’re up for anything…” and click on the INTERN WANTED or Entry Level Position. This site definitely requires patience since you have to sit and click next page over and over until you realize the positions you’re looking at probably don’t exist anymore.
– This site reminds me of the Kayak.com of job searches. If you click on ‘Non-profit’ SimplyHired takes you to all the Google searches available that have positions wanted in this field.
– CareerBuilder helps “match the right talent with the right opportunity.” That’s code for, pay more to be seen.
– If you aren’t on LinkedIn, you should be. This is an excellent way to be recommended/meet connections. It’s true that connections are everything.
– Use ed2010 if you want a job or internship with a magazine. It doesn’t cost anything to join their membership and they always update their listings.
– This is a great site for quick money. Part-time/full-time babysitting jobs. Also great for weekend or sporadic money opportunities. You can also find dog-walking jobs here.
