With the end of the semester quickly approaching, the time will come for a great number of recent Temple graduates to enter the workforce. For others it will be time to start an internship in preparation for the future.
Hotjobs.com is a good place to start in search of an exciting career opportunity. The site covers approximately 30 areas of employment, from accounting to telecommunications. Search by keyword, company, or location for a job opening. A detailed job description will result.
At the bottom of the page, the contact information for the employer is provided. Once a suitable position is found, one can e-mail a resume (composed at the hotjobs.com site)and include a cover letter. While at the site, you can also check out the “hotjobs community” where one can “swap tips” for job searching with others.
Monster.com, which offers a search of over 480,650 jobs, features many of the same options (such as posting a resume) as hotjobs. However, monster.com goes beyond the basic job search to include information on the area that the job is located in, as well.
Monster.com includes a city profile with details such as the quality of life, commute time, and taxes for the city. Advice for interviews is another extremely helpful aspect. One can perform a “mock virtual” interview online. A series of interview questions are posed and the site will tell you if the answer chosen is the best answer for the situation.
However, jobbankofusa.com provides a service that is unique from the above sites. Here you can check out the classified ads from virtually every newspaper in the United States. A simple click of the mouse on `Philadelphia’ results in classified ads from papers such as the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Bucks County Courier Times. This site’s access to newspapers far and wide will make things simpler for those seeking a job a distance away.
“International Job Listings” include places like exotic Singapore and Australia. A listing of Fortune 500 job postings is also unique to this site.
If an internship is what you are seeking, Rsinternships.com may not offer a great number of them, but the ones listed should be of interest. Many of the featured internships are located away from Philadelphia, but who wouldn’t want to spend a summer preparing for their career in Tampa, Florida? One can also take a peek at resumes posted to the site; posting your own will cost five dollars.
There is a money back guarantee if you are not satisfied. Most internship opportunities may not have their own web site, but are included under job search web sites. Since the right ones can be hard to find, visiting jobhuntersbible.com may help. This site contains a great number of links to all sorts of career sites. Links to webs on unusual jobs, personality tests, and salary surveys are also included.
The school year is quickly coming to a close, so visit some of these sites to find the perfect job or amazing internship you know is out there.
