Just wondering bees, what have you found to be the best resources in looking for jobs? Graduation is hovering over the horizon at exactly 4 months away so… I need one relatively soon!
We have a career center and I’m applying for everything they’re sending my way, but it hasn’t been the greatest.

What field are you hoping to work in?

Not sure if that was what you were looking for

I always went directly to the company’s websites. I suggest making a list of companies you’d like to work for and go from there.
I also found career fairs to be fairly helpful!

This is really dependant on what field you want to go into.
If you go to indeed.com it pulls all the job postings off of a million different sites (monster, careerbuilder, hotjobs, msnjobs, craigslist, etc. etc.) It’s nice because it puts them all in one place for you.

I found my old job from the career center. Unfortunately, the market sucks right now so I’m having a hard time to find a job now.

Well I can go two directions–marketing or public administration/management. I have a poli sci degree with a minor in business administration (specialization in marketing).
It’s just soooo difficult right now because companies aren’t wanting to hire soooo far in advance! four months is a long time in this economy…

You can start applying right now for public sector jobs; most public agencies have a (VERY) lengthy hiring process and can take 6 months (or more sometimes) to finish a recruitment. Look on http://www.governmentjobs.com. It’s easy to apply for multiple jobs in a short amount of time once you set up an initial resume/application.

second Indeed.com. It aggregates all of the other sites.

@LaborOfLove– my advice: try to stay away from the Marketing side. Fiance has worked for some big brand companies in both Marketing and Ad Sales depts – he’s kept in touch with all of his contacts and he’s still been out of work for almost 15months. No one’s hiring in that field right now. Sucks.

If you need something while looking for a job in your degree I am shamelessy going to tell you to try applying at Starbucks. You get great benefits and tips. they also try to start you out above min. wage.

What I have found to be the most helpful is to look through the phone book! Find companies in your area in your field. Hop on the web to see if they have a website and see if they have a HR department. Contact to see if they are hiring.
Google for companies in your area for those that might not have a phone book listing.

I have found jobs through monster.com, careerbuilder.com, and craigslist. My husband found his job through linkedin.com. A friend of mine found her job through idealist.org. Also, you can research some companies in your area and apply for jobs directly through their website. That’s what I did when we were moving to Chicago. I was lucky though, someone from my company saw my resume on monster.com and contacted me. So even if you don’t actively look for a job using some of those sites, just having a profile and resume there can be a big help.

I like indeed.com and careerbuilder.com. For people interested in the hospitality industry (restaurants, catering, sales, etc), hcareers.com is a great website!
