Making dough

3 Jun

In order to buy stuff – whether it’s cheap or cute – you need to have a source of money. For most of us, that means we get jobs.

With the economy being, well, craptastic, job searchers (a group I’ve recently joined) are facing quite the obstacle. Jobs aren’t quite as plentiful and competition is stiff.

My question to you is: Where are good places to find jobs? Of course, networking and knowing the right people is huge, but when it comes to online searches, what do you use? There are the big ones: Craigslist, Monster, CareerBuilder, HotJobs, along with specific sites depending on what industry you work in. What else have you come across? What other ways have you found jobs?

    temp agency for temp-to-hire positions. But that would only be in big metro area, with a well-established temp agency that contracts with big companies. Those companies that hire temp-to-hires tend to keep the good ones.

    Temp-to-hire are slim pickins’ right now. I actually just talked to a temp recruiter today and she said they don’t have any temp to hire jobs. She did not make me feel very good.

    The glass is half full! … or something like that.
