Websites with Valuable Career Information

Most colleges and universities use their websites to post valuable career related information from their career services department. It is a good practice to check there for information as to career fairs and the schedule of campus visits by recruiters. There are hundreds of great websites found within college and university portals. Here are a few links to sites that you will find helpful — but be sure to check your own school for its information:

Clarkson University:


Clemson University:


Colorado State University:


Pace University:


University of Vermont:


In addition to your school website, there are thousands of websites which post job search tips or job opportunities.  There are some fantastic Internet job sites that you can access and use to find jobs for college graduates.  Your Internet job search strategy should include a wide variety of sites.

There are more than 60,000 career related websites.  To help you through the process, I have identified a large number of valuable websites that you should access for career information and job listings.  Review the list to find what is most relevant for your purposes. 

The summary not only lists them, but it also describes the mission or objectives of the sites.  You can use this information to set priorities for which sites are a good use of your time.

When I instruct students how to use these sites, I tell them to select a few general sites that provide a wide variety of job listings.  I also tell them to select a few sites that specialize in the industry or profession that reflects their interest.  You should apply this strategy.  Become familiar with the layout of the various sites and their rhythm.  By rhythm, I mean the frequency that the site lists new jobs daily or weekly.  General sites will list more jobs per day than specialized sites.  You should visit both kinds of sites often until you develop a sense of the frequency and quality of new listings.  This will help you determine how often to check the sites for new job listings.
