Career websites can help with your job search.

View Forum | Print Article | Font Size + / - | Back

Career websites are online job-search agencies. They offer job-search advice and support; their primary goal is to match qualified job applicants with employers looking to hire.

Resumes are stored online, and this usually does not involve a fee to the job seeker. Employers search through the resumes, often for a fee.

Many websites can help in the job hunt. Some are general; others are very specific to certain fields. You can find career websites by going to a search engine and entering “Job Site” or “Career Search” or “Find Jobs.” Many job sites are useful, but don’t make this your only method of seeking job openings!

Following are some popular job websites. At many you will find information about resume writing, sample resumes by industry, cover-letter samples, potential interview questions, what to wear to an interview, sample interview thank-you letter, salary research, and salary negotiation.
