We live in a digital world. The fact that you’re even reading this proves it. How did you stumble across this article…Email? The Plymouth Facebook page? Twitter? Maybe even LinkedIn or a Google search?
The beauty of living in such a tech-centric environment is that you can use it to your advantage, especially when job searching. From dedicatedjob search engines to advice-based blogs, you can find just about anything you need to get a fulfilling and meaningful job.
When it comes to tracking down a new position, you have probably used a few of the big search engines, namely Indeed, Monster, Career Builder or Simply Hired. These are great resources that usually carry hosts of opportunities.
Some of you may not have had the best of luck with these sources in the past. Living and job searching in Minnesota and the Twin Cities may call for a more localized source. With that in mind, here are three sources to help you with your Minnesota-based job search.
I’m sure you’ve seen many commercials or billboards touting Jobs In Minneapolis. The folks at the Minnesota Local JobNetwork™ have done a great job putting together a strong stable of sites aimed at specific areas of the state. When it comes to finding work in Minneapolis, this site is tough to beat.
Yup, the good ‘ol newspaper is still a great place to find jobs…even in the digital world. Head over to StarTribune.com/jobs for another glimpse at job opportunities in and around the metro area.
Minnesota Jobs is another Minnesota-dedicated job search site. Outside of the search capabilities, the sheer amount of job search help it provides is impressive. A job fair calendar, plus blog and relevant articles galore are all accessible from the homepage. Additionally, the site gives out a quarterly scholarship open to any Minnesota college student. (The Plymouth campus has even had a student win it!).
As you know, the internet is chock full of resources. Stop by the career services office where we are more than happy to help you navigate through them!
