Job Hunting on the Internet


Job Hunting on the Internet
Fauquier County Public Library's reference department has put together two (2) new brochures on career and job hunting resources on the Internet. Last week I posted on Career Resources on the Internet. This week, my post focuses specifically on some of the job hunting resources included in the print brochure.

NOTE: See also my previous posts on Ferguson's Career Guidance Center and Career Advancement Tools and Resources.
