What are some good job-search sites (a-la monster, dice)?

Hi all,

I am ready to graduate in 5 weeks, and it is time for me to whore myself out everywhere that I can possibly can

I have a pretty solid resume, a decent cover letter and plenty of experience to tout; but what I need are places to slap it all in. I already created a full Monster and Dice profile and now looking for more decent sources that would not spam my email every 20 minutes with "OMG HERE'S A JOB BUT ITS IN BANGKOK LOLOL"...

Suggestions?

Thanks

5 weeks till you graduate, and you just started looking for a job NOW?

You are crazy. In this climate it can take MONTHS to find a job.

You should have started a lot earlier. Good luck to you though.

www.indeed.com <<< is the main site i use

I forgot to mention that I currently have a job (that is unrelated) and that I live in the Bay Area where there are always jobs.

Well just be prepared to work your current job, if you can't find a new one. It takes some people 6 months after they graduate to find a job.

I wonder why everyone that is unemployed in the united states just doesn't move to bay area because their are always jobs there

Because competition is a bitch not to mention the bay is a very expensive place to live in.

Very expensive.










Very, fucking, expensive.

So there might be plenty of jobs, but low paying jobs.
If you know there is a lot of competition for the "good" jobs in the area, why would you start your job searching so late?

no prob, brohama

i'd stick with indeed. forget about submitted your res to all those places like monster.com

just go to the websites of the companies you are interested in working at, and apply on their site.

also, check out career fairs. i got my job from attending a career fair at a university that i did not graduate from, lolz.

you are full of yourself. the bay area is not "very, fucking, expensive".

there are not "plenty" of jobs available. but.. if obama's plan goes through.. look on caljobs and governmentjobs.com. also. find yourself a recruiter in the field you're looking to apply in and lastly... keep your current job if you can. an employer would rather take someone who is already working than someone who has been unemployed for a period of time and is "out of touch" with the working world.

My specific field has a lot of jobs; I am not being "full" of myself. My only problem is that I am fresh out of college and that causes it a bit hard to "network" aside from my school contacts.

Also the bay area is expensive; those who lived here are just immune. I was in FL last week - they had 2000 sq ft homes for 200K as opposed to 6-700K they would cost here. That is expensive.

I got my current job from monster.com Got a lot of interviews from career fairs at school. Also just company websites. www.collegegrad.com has a lot of entry level jobs but like most job boards for every 1 good job there's 27 million versions of the exact same job, plus a bunch of military and BS work at home postings.

what kinds of jobs are you looking for? Start a linkedin profile and add as many people as you know who are currently working, I get offers through there fairly regularly.

In my opinion, the armed forces are a nice way to start your career (assuming you have an applicable field). If you've got the brains for college there's a good chance you could handle going in thru OCS or just enlisting and opting for OCS down the road.

I'm signing on with the Marines in June (Poli Sci degree) and my friend is headed for Navy OCS for Public Affairs (journalism degree).

It's always a path to consider.

Dude, focus your effort on tapping your network. Friends, family, associates. See if any of them know of any job openings.

My sister got laid off and is looking for a new job...turns out my cousin was a frat brother with the hiring manager at Jack in the Box (the corporate office) and scored her an interview in the marketing department. You never know who may have a lead for you!
