There are many free resources for how to conduct the job search.

I'm listing a bunch of them here in no particular order. I've found these helpful or they've been recommended to me. I can't recommend all of them. Check them out and see which ones you find helpful, then comment with your experiences and suggestions below. Your use is at your own risk.

Job and work search advice:
Resume Customizers
You can also get your resume scanned to find out how to get it to agree with job postings using these tools. The use of these tools is highly suggested if you are applying "cold" to a job posting. Of course, following up with connections inside and getting referrals is most important!
Recruiter Websites:
Networking Meetings:
  • The Landing Expert (landingexpert.com) - This site has a database of many networking groups. You can search by zipcode too!
  • Meetup.com - find people who want to do similar things, or have the same hobby and network with them!
  • Eventbrite.com - Some companies post hiring events here. Just search on the word "hiring"

Job Search Websites:
Websites where you can post a profile and recruiteres/employers will find you:
 Salary research

  • Indeed.com/salary
  • Salary.com
