Additional Job Search Resources
College Career Centers
Check with all the local colleges in the geographic area that you are interested in working. Even if you are not eligible to use the specific services the college offers, you can still browse through bulletin boards and job posting binders.
IVCC offers information about job openings through the Career Services, as well as through individual academic departments. Employers contact the college when they need to recruit a pool of applicants with specific skills. Make sure you utilize these services – employers want to hire qualified people. Visit the www.ivcc.edu/cs and www.collegecentral.com/ivcc links.
Make calls and find out when and where local colleges or employment offices are sponsoring job fairs. To know when Illinois Valley Community College's next job fair is happening, visit Job Fair. Visit www.jobweb.com to see a list of college job fairs held throughout the nation.
Libraries, supermarkets, and churches may have bulletin boards where local employers tack up job openings.
Trade Journals and Unions
Trade journals may publicize job openings as well as union halls, which may have a listing service or bulletin board. If you are a member of a trade association or union, do not overlook these resources.
Once again, it is a good idea to look at lists of employers in order to brainstorm a list of contacts.
