If networking is your best friend as you go through the job search process, the Internet is a close second.

Social media platforms provide a great way to learn about or connect with people who can help you as you seek your next position, numerous websites list job openings in your community, and you can check out recruiting firms that can provide tremendous support.  In addition to these “usual suspects,” there are many other online resources that you can turn to for ideas, inspiration, information, tips and techniques about various aspects of the job search. For example, here are a series of TED Talks videos that we recommend watching before you go on your next job interview. Feel free to share online resources you’ve discovered!
