How Do I Find Jobs Near Me In Times Like These? If you're searching the job boards you are most likely overwhelmed with the millions of job postings and lack of response when you apply to them. Job boards are a valuable tool but to find jobs near me in this economy, when the competition for job openings is steep, means going outside-the-box where most job applicants don't go. You know that most businesses have websites to promote their products and services, but did you know many of these businesses post their job openings on their website? To find job openings on a website you need to scroll down to the footer where you will often find links not included in the sites' general navigation bars. Look for words like Jobs or Career. If you don't see these words in the footer, look for a Site Map link that will show you the navigational map of the site pages. You may have to dig deeper - some companies will post their job opportunities in their About Us page or other area. Not all companies will have job postings. Don't be discouraged if you can't find these words or similar ones. Where to begin? Start with a pad of paper or worksheet where you can list the companies you would like to work for. Use the company website, job boards, Google, Yellow Pages, and other sources to locate the jobs. Your worksheet should include columns for: 

Company name Where you found the job listing Company location(s) Keyword - what word(s) you typed in to find the job listing Jobs posted - for jobs that interest you Apply format - submit online, fax, mail in resume, etc. Contact info - name, phone, address, etc. Comments - additional notes For example, do a Google search for Textron Financial Corporation. Once you get to the site scroll down to the footer where you will find a link called Careers. If you click on this link, you will see their postings for job openings in different locations throughout the United States. Not all companies update their websites daily.  Check with the company to see if the job you


are interested in is still being interviewed for.  Don't waste your valuable time applying for a position that is no longer available. Special Note: Once you have a list of the companies and job postings of interest, you need to customize your resume and cover letter to highlight the skills you have that make you the best candidate.   Submitting a customized resume to each job posting of interest can greatly increase the chances of an employer calling you for an interview.
