Please dont beother to answer with "I dont know", "Nice topic", or "I am also searching" etc. Please reply only if you have something to contribute which will be highly appreciated.

you should check www.career.com and check it out there, local job employment center are great, but only down size of it is that they charge you % of your pay each month till it is pay off, other wise local classifle is another way to go, i hope this help you with your job search, good luck

Thank you very much. I actually need something urgently. So I wont mind having a portion of my income going to the agent or something. I guess after a year's experience I wont have to go though such cuts. But for now I wont mind if I can find a suitable job offer.

well it depends... If you are an engineer or a doctor, you have lots of opportunities.... start using careerbuilder.com and post resumes... once you do, you will get responses from the companies saying about the kind of position they are looking for..if you make their match, then you should contact them... personally, I think that if you talk with a manager or a person at a workkplace you are interested to work, there are more chances for you to get hired... Right now, in the USA, influences work more better than your abilities... but if you are a good worker, your skills will prove it, and at that time, influences wont matter......

I think the face to face approach would be the quickest but search all listings online for your area and you will know where to go.

You can also check with your local employment security commission to see what jobs are available. You can network by attending job fairs in your area or university job fairs. Register with an employment agency look in the yellow pages of your phone book to find some in your area.

Thanks. Yes Orkut is a good tool for social netowrking. But I doubt if most people there are really authentic. I am not sure about proving valid information over there because it is available for all and sundry to see.

Indeed.com is one that combines lots of different job websites into one (like monster, careerbuilder, etc.), the problem is that sometimes the posts stay up there for a long time so you have to sift through until you find a rescent one! I'd also go to a One Stop they have them everywhere in California and they have job boards and people that can help you! There are also job placement agencies that work with you to find a suitable employer... I think the best way to get a "good" job is to know someone that can hook you up!

Well, to me I think it always depends on where you live as to where works best for you. But if you have an Employment agency in your area, they may have a link online where you can submit your Resume, and then check out places you would like to work, and see if there is a way to submit your Resume that way as well. Also if you live close to a Bigger city you might want to consider checking out Craigslist. http://www.craigslist.com I know this is how I landed the job that I have now. I feel that is a Great source of information for jobs. Continued success with your job hunt.

I took my resume door to door and was successful with my last job search. Try temporary services as well. The pay is good and you get variety.
