The internet is an essential resource for career-related information. You can find current employment listings on general sites that cover all occupations and geographical areas or go to specialized sites for individual industries and job categories. Expert advice is offered on such topics as: career selection, resume writing, interviewing, and other job hunting skills. You can even locate forecasts for particular industries and occupations, or use a salary calculator to see what the same job would pay in different cities. Take a look at the comprehensive sites, where you can find information on almost every aspect of the job hunting process as well as links to other useful web resources. There is so much information available, in fact, that it's hard to know where to begin. The LRC has compiled this guide to Career Resources on the Internet to help you get started.
In addition to these online resources, there are some excellent career services available through BCTC Counseling Services. Some of the resources available are: Career Assessment Tools, Career Counseling Services, and Career Library Collection
These sites provide a wealth of job hunting advice to help you to develop cover letters and print and electronic resumes, and help with interview and follow-up skills.
While they provide career information on many topics, these sites are particularly useful for those seeking first-time professional employment.
Comprehensive career sites consist of a table of contents to additional job lists and services. Sometimes they provide brief descriptions of each item. The best sites are often highlighted. Look for signals such as a smiley face or a star. The directory may identify sites which are new. Comprehensive sites let you link directly into the job lists or services that they index. Be sure to keep track of which sites or places you want to find later! As you can see from their descriptions, these sites offer one-stop assistance for all phases of job hunting.
Search the databases at these sites for all types of job listings. Many of the sites offer helpful career information as well.
