Job search strategies

Job seekers are spending hours on the web looking for new career opportunities. The large job boards (monster.com, careerbuilder.com hotjobs.com) have the most postings and cover many career fields. However, the competition is fierce and very few people secure jobs solely through these Internet job boards.
