Looking for an engineering job?  If so, posting your resume on these sites is critical: Monster, CareerBuilder, ZipRecruiter, Indeed, LinkedIn; if you are in IT and systems your resume should be on Dice; if you have clearance try out ClearanceJobs.  Posting your resume on these sites will drive a ton of traffic to your resume, and you can expect calls if your skills are in demand.  This is also an ideal way to practice networking and be consistent about talking calls. If all goes well, one of those calls will lead to a job offer!

 

Try speaking with an E91 Recruiter to avoid the hassle of job boards.  

 

If posting your resume to these job boards doesn’t yield the results you want, then it’s time to start applying for jobs.  When you are applying make sure you have the appropriate resume for the job; different jobs require different skills, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself with several different resumes.  All the sites listed in the article have jobs posted- make sure you are checking them regularly for updates! Google the position you are looking for to see what information you can find, and don’t forget to check out Craigslist for even more options.
