There are many job networking websites out there. You should put it up on Craigslist, Yahoo Jobs, Monster...etc. You should also join networking sites to meet employers or employees of places you want to work at. You should try Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn for networking purposes. You can also post your resume on those sites as well.

A good place to put your resume online are sites that also offer jobs. Popular sites like Monster.com and Careerbuilder.com offer a complete job searching engine also. These sites allow you to post your resume and then employers looking for candidates are allowed to view resumes. It is important to post your resume to different sites. This way you can have a better advantage to getting a job.

If you are applying for a high paying job, The Ladders is a good site. Also, LinkedIn is great. Surprisingly, a very good amount of employers check LinkedIn regularly. I work for a very prestigious company, and my superiors are always looking at candidates on LinkedIn.

There are a number of job sites, depending on your specialty. The default place to apply is Monster.com. You should also try your local newspaper, in particular the larger city paper in the area, if they allow you to post resumes. Some fields have their own job services, like dice.com. If you join a professional organization, sometimes they have job boards available. Lastly, the federal government is always hiring- check out USAJobs.com and consider posting there.

There are several good places to put your resume online. These include HotJobs on yahoo.com and also Monster.com. I would also highly recommend the USAJOBS site. This is the federal government's official hiring site. Everyday, hundreds of jobs are listed and filled. It is a great place to start if you are just graduating. You will be able to find everything from police jobs to biology jobs. Once you create a profile and post your resume, it will be easy to crank out the applications.

First, make sure to submit your resume to your college career center - they usually keep a database of resumes that then employers often look at when they have a job opening. Next, email out your resume to any close network contacts you have - just ask them nicely to take a look over it. Then, add your resume to craigslist - it's free and also a decent source of job opportunities. Then, submit your resume to the USAJOBS website. This website is the gateway to apply for all federal government jobs.

First and foremost, make sure your resume is acceptable by industry standards. Either have it written by a professional resume writer, or have a professional proofread it for errors. If you find your resume is acceptable then I'd suggest posting your resume on sites like monster.com, careerbuilder.com and any other job search sites that allow resumes to be posted. Keep in mind that just posting your resume does not guarantee you a job, or even a job offer, especially in today's economy. Remember to be on the lookout for job postings on the aforementioned sites as well as places like craigslist.org. Also remember to write a cover letter that is applicable to the job you are inquiring about.

If you are not applying for a specific job, and just want to have your resume seen online, there are three good places to try. You can sign up for Linkedin account, which is a networking site for business professionals. You can post your resume on your Linkedin account page. Or you could post it on monster.com, which is an employment site where employers search for new employees, and job seekers can post resumes. The third option would be careerbuilders.com, which will also get your resume in front of thousands of employers.

For a college graduate, the more exposure you can get your resume, the better! The number one place to start with posting would be your local online resume posting site. Most cities have a website that is linked to the local paper where you can post your resume. There are also the larger sites like Careerbuilder.com and Careerboard.com which are great ways to get your resume out there. But remember, make your resume great, not bland or generic. There are lots or resumes out there with yours, so make it unique.

Monster and CareerBuilder are the two major online job boards. There may be other specialty boards depending on your field. For instance, in my field, dice.com is a good secondary site for job hunting. One other thing: don't just put up your resume and hope companies come to you. The ones that do are often multi-level marketing scams and the like. Actually approach companies you'd like to work for with a well-written cover letter. The job market is tough right now, so don't give up.

I've always found that putting my resume online was like baiting a hook...hit or miss, its better to be more agressive and find out whos hiring and set up a route to personally submit your resume, its always better to get face time with whoever you are trying to work for. But monster.com has found me plenty of interviews in the past, just make sure you constanly check in because employers can see if your profile is inactive

There are several different avenues available to recent college grads looking for work. National websites like Careerbuilder and Monster.com allow job applicants to post their resumes for interested employers to consider. Additionally, some universities host their own network to match job applications and potential employers. Speak with a counselor for more information on finding a job post-graduation.

There are several online job sites that are quite good. Monster, yahoo, career builder, indeed, simply hired just to name a few. These are all reputable quality sources for online resumes and job searches. I would also recommend that you seek out the actual company website where you wish to apply and make sure that you have submitted your resume there as well. Other things people forget about is that the internet is all connected, your facebook, myspace, twitter and personal blog locations are all there for public access. Always conduct yourself accordingly, what you say in a moment of lacked judgment may come back to haunt you.

There are several good places to put your resume online. Sites that have multiple job search engines such as Monster, Careerbuilder, and JobCircle are great for posting resumes and searching for jobs. Usually, you would only have to upload your resume one time and be able to send out this resume out for multiple positions with just a click. Also, you have the option to make your resume public so employers would be able to search your resume.

Monster.com is a very popular site. Another one is jobs.com. Your local newspaper might have an area for resumes as well. Check with your school to see if they allow resumes posted in their alumni section. Linkedin.com is a good site if you already have some work experience.

Only put your resume online on job websites. Do not post it openly, since this risks identity theft and being a target for scams. You may consider posting it on professional society job boards. However, it is better to apply to open positions than post it and hope someone nibbles. There are too many active applicants for that to work today.

Get a personal domain, buy a portfolio theme (Theme Forest is a good place to check) or make your own, and host it yourself. Although there are some online services that'll let you create an "online resume" similar to a Facebook profile or something, it's better to just do it yourself. Brazen Careerist is also a good spot to syndicate your personal blog and post your resume.

If you are looking for a career, or a job, I would recommend placing your ad on a local job board in the area or the area where you are looking to live. I would also recommend a career specific site like linkin or technology jobs were you can find a job based on industry. Afterward, I would apply at other online sites such as monster, or careerbuilder.com

I would try monster.com first. Then I would contact your local "headhunters" and ask if they have a website where you can post your resumes. Also try doing a resume search on google and see what comes up.
