Professional associations are one of the most frequently overlooked sources of job listings. It is becoming increasingly common for employers to post jobs through associations, and in many cases, these are the only places they post. In addition, association Web sites often include discussions groups that feature job postings and important career advice. You can find professional associations in your intended occupation by talking to faculty members or people already in the field. You will also find many through a Google search. Search for “professional association” “professional organization” and your field(s) of interest and you will find a wide range of resources.
For access to newspapers in the U.S. and around the world, go to Newspapers Online.
Company Web Sites
If you’re interested in working for a particular company or organization, go to their Web site. Most employers will post openings on their own sites first, since this does not cost them anything. Look for links in the navigation such as “human resources” or “career opportunities.”
