The internet and your job search
Blogs are subjective. There’s no way to get around that fact. But sometimes they’re more obviously and blatantly biased, as you’ll find with today’s topic. I have OPINIONS on doing an internet job search.
On the positive side, the internet offers speed and possibilities. At your fingertips. Personally, I love it. It’s the first place I go to research most things.
And, on the good side, I actually know people who’ve gotten jobs, good enough to actually be referred to as professional positions, and they found them on the internet. E.g. just as I was about to trash a major job posting board, my very own nephew, who limited his search to that self same job board and, contrary to my advice, used nothing else in his job search, found a job through that service. Well, shut my mouth. I tempered my critical remarks after that, at least for a while.
