Alison Doyle, author of a new book, “Internet Your Way to a New Job – How to Really Find a Job Online” (Happy About; $19.95, March 2008) points out that you can waste hours searching, and applying for jobs. Since most employers post jobs to one or two sites, targeting just a few job search sites isn’t enough. The job market is becoming increasingly competitive, and has changed hiring practices which has changed job searching.

“There is a misperception that people don’t really find jobs online – which is simply not true,” notes Doyle. From job search web sites like to niche sites and job search engines, along with the social networking sites, you need a guide. According to Doyle, the biggest mistake people make when looking for a job online is posting their resume online and waiting for employers to come to them.

You can learn how to find a job utilizing everything from large job sites to social and professional networking sites like Facebook and LinkedIn.
