Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Job hunting--Computer network resources;
The Internet offers an abundance of resources and information to the job seeker. Because of this great wealth of data, it is important educators are able to assist students in developing a path to take when utilizing the Internet as a job searching tool. When job searching using the Internet, students can go online to determine their interests, research various careers, research various companies, and research general and specific job listings using online job boards and online newspaper classifieds. The Internet also offers information on the various resume formats needed by today's job seeker. These resume formats include those that are scannable, searchable and uploadable along with resumes that are Web based and those that are input via the use of forms located at various Internet job boards. Some types of projects educators could use include developing keyword lists, web site address lists, networking skills, digital portfolios and job search notebooks. Overall, educators today need to develop projects that help students become familiar with both traditional as well as electronic methods of job seeking.
