Job Search Resources

During your job search, you may refer to a number of different resources and job boards to find positions that interest you.

If you are looking for work, you should spend at least 50-60% of your time networking. Online job boards are not typically the best use of your time (although they can be a good research tool).

While networking is generally where you want to spend the majority of your time, it’s important to have a couple of “go-to” places to search for open positions and potential employers.
