Professional Organization Websites
Professional associations are great tools to expand your career knowledge and network if you have specific career interests in mind. Associations offer workshops, seminars, and oftentimes discounted or free memberships to students. There are often membership directories and/or local chapter listings that include the names, email addresses and phone numbers of professionals you may access.
Chambers of Commerce
Chambers of Commerce offer useful hiring information for job seekers as well as directory of member companies.
Want Ads: Newspapers and Trade Journals
Vacant positions are often found in the Classified or Employment (web) pages of newspapers and trade journals. This is a great tool for any job seeker looking to relocate to another city or state. Employers are more inclined to use local advertisements and many of these publications are the premier resource for employment postings in the region.
