Building your network
LinkedIn – Discover inside connections when you’re looking for a job or new business opportunity.
Careeronestop business finder includes contact information for nearly 12 million employers. By entering an industry or occupation and the city, state or zip code of the area in which you’d like to work, you can get a list of businesses, each with an address, phone number, the number of employees and a link to the company’s website.
Whitepages.com allows users to enter a type of business and a location, and it will show all the businesses of that type in the area, including small and family-owned firms.
Yelp.com may be useful for those who are looking for restaurant work. They can search the popular restaurants close to where they live.
Other tools that may help with your job search:
Google Voice – Gives you a free phone number for calling and texting that is tied to you, not to a phone or a location. You can add their full feature app to your mobile phone enabling a separate phone
number for your job search. Google Voice is also useful if you don’t have your own phone because it
allows you to receive voicemails that you can check online and through your email. You can create
customized greetings and also place free calls on both a mobile phone and a computer with a microphone.
