Some career-related links you might find helpful:
(There are many sites on these topics – these are just a few that I like the best)
Online job listings:
Most people get jobs through personal contacts, as opposed to replying to job postings. I can help you devise a strategy for meeting people in your field and at the organizations where you are interested in working. However, it's certainly a good idea to apply for jobs you find online – people do get jobs this way!
Online job postings are also an excellent way to see what employers are looking for and to get a sense of what skills and qualifications you will want to emphasize on your resume or, possibly, acquire additional training in.
Andrew Hudson's Jobs List (focuses on jobs in media, PR, and related creative fields)
Mashable: 100+ Places to Find Jobs (links to a whole bunch of other sites that post jobs)
It's also a good idea to look directly at the web sites of companies and organizations you're interested in working for, as well as professional associations in your field.
Preparing your resume and other job-related communications:
These worksheets can be helpful in identifying your transferable skills, which you will want to include on your resume:
Visual CV (create a visual, web-based resume)
How to Network (Even If You Hate Networking) – a good resource for introverts
Once you join LinkedIn, search for groups to join related to your career field and for people working at places and doing things that interest you.
Also visit the web sites for the professional associations in your field, and see if there are local groups you can get involved with.
Assessments and figuring out what you want to do:
College in Colorado (not just for college students or prospective students!)
Keirsey Temperament site (a free assessment, similar to the Myers-Briggs but not as in-depth)
My Skills My Future (input an occupation you've held, and it gives you a list of related occupations)
General career and job search information:
Job Hunter's Bible (official site for the book What Color Is Your Parachute?)
Quint Careers (too many popup ads, unfortunately, but very good information)
