It is the goal of this blog to discover and post web sites, blogs and articles that help dispel the confusion and frustration of people trying to use the Internet to find work.  Postings can be generated by questions asked in the “Applying for a Job Online” class held at the Newton Free Library, by material recommended by staff and patrons, and by the many genuinely helpful people outside the Newton community who also leave comments and suggestions.  In addition you will find postings on programs, meetings, and classes related to the job search that are being given here at the library.

The blog began as part of a project funded by the Metrowest Library System and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.

Would you help?  If you are a job seeker yourself and have found a particular site, book, or article useful, or have an opinion on a specific posting, we would love to have you leave a comment on any of our current or archived postings that you find relevant, useful, or just captures your interest.

  1. Hello, I wanted to offer a heads-up on the Resume Articles blog (http://www.resumeorbit.com/resume_articles/) at ResumeOrbit.com. I’m a Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) and I personally write all of the posts on this blog related to writing a great resume, cover letter, developing an effective LinkedIn Profile, and other job search strategies. All of the tips on this blog are inspired by actual client experiences. Please do check it out!

    I blog for recent college grad and newly unemployed job seekers on my blog, the tumbleweed years, and I tweet #TuesdayTips on Twitter from my account: tumbleweedyears. Might be useful for the younger population, but also older job seekers since I write about using social media and web presence to find work!
    Best, Wendy

    MAHospitalCareers (http://www.mahospitalcareers.com/) has job listings for nurses, physicians, and other health care professionals in Massachusetts. This job board is a service of the Massachusetts Hospital Association, and connects job seekers with Massachusetts hospitals.

  4. I would like to invite you to a new web site where you can help each other get through job interviews in any type of job.

    If you have been in an interview lately and would like to post professional questions you were asked, http://www.hired4sure.com is the place for you.

    My first weeks in the ranks of the unemployed have been quite eventful. I have written up an article describing my experiences, and strategies. I hope this might prove to be of some value to those who are out there hunting for work, like me, or at least provide amusement if nothing else. 🙂

    Since this seems to be the space to tell people about new sites, I thought I’d drop a note about HuntingToHired (www.HuntingToHired.com), a new job search skills training site that I’ve created.

    The reviews have been very positive, and there’s a free eBook titled “Forget Everything You Know About Looking For A Job… And Actually Find One!” Visit http://www.HuntingToHired.com to download your copy, and tell your friends about it!

    Here’s to your job search,

    We have looked through your site and noticed that you have a “jobs” section in which several sites were listed.

    Careerjet is an employment search engine for the United States. It allows you to search a growing selection of jobs listed on company sites as well as jobsites in one go saving you the trouble of having to go to each site individually.

    Also, some of our tools might be of interest to you:
    JobBox – see http://www.careerjet.com/partners/jobbox.html
    SearchBox – see http://www.careerjet.com/partners/searchbox.html.

    We hope this site will interest you and can be included in your listings.

    Kind regards,

    Emily Kovak
