Use the Internet to Maximize Your Job Search

In the past, looking for a job was simple: you would scour a newspaper’s Help Wanted ads and mail your resume and cover letter to a potential employer. Although job hunting has become more complex in the past several years, and more and more people are vying for fewer jobs, the enormous growth of the Internet has resulted in a plethora of web sites catering to job seekers. Here are just a few:
