|There are various resources for finding job leads. I have used job boards with email alerts (can't ever get the right jobs sent to me though), yellow pages, online and offline classifieds, and job forums. I have to use all of them together to find a few leads. There is one other resource I have recently added to the list - electronic newsletters that post company information. This is an excellent way to network and find job leads. Many companies don't post their open positions, so utilizing an electronic newsletter is a great way to find these job leads.|
My favorite electronic newsletter is TechLinks (http://www.techlinks.net). My subscription with them began early this year, 2005, and since then I have met many good contacts.
When you become a member you can have them send you their newsletter through email. When they send you the newsletter there will be links to various articles like company mergers, promotions within companies, companies that implement new technologies, etc.
Also, if you ask them, they will provide links for you to submit articles and provide you with emails to contact their staff members. I have spoken with some of the staff members and all of them are a wealth of information - they are very helpful.
Looking for a job is tiring, but if you find various places to submit your resume, you will be surprised with the results. Don't rely solely on one method to find job leads because there are so many avenues to walk to find your ideal job.
