  • Depending on the type of job you're looking for:
    - Local and Regional sites
    - - compiles listings from other web sites for a more comprehensive search
    - Various trade associations or networks
    - Direct to corporate web sites - make a list of companies you'd be willing to commute to and/or would like to work at. Then go direct to their web site, pull up their "Jobs" section and see if you find a fit.
    - Placement agencies (aka Headhunters)

  • Check your local city for positions as well. I know the City I live in has it's own site to look for jobs on. If you're looking to work from home. has ideas as well.

    Best Wishes!

  • You can also check your local newspaper or go through a temp agency and pray for a temp-permanent position.

  • Less than 40% of the available jobs are listed on job boards. The others are posted on company websites, or through word of mouth. Networking is the best way to tap into the "hidden jobmarket"

    There are lots of great tips in the CafeMom Job Hunting Moms group:

  • I would avoid Craigslist. There are too many scams on there. Check the newspaper and local job boards. Use Hotjobs, Careerboard, Indeed. Set up a Linkedin profile, make it sell yourself and get active in groups. Attend job fairs. Sign up with employment firms.
