Early 2001, I saw an article in a magazine rating six job search sites. I put them at the top of this next list -along with their ratings. However due to the fierce job market in June 2002, I've heard that when a company puts an opening on a job board like Monster, they will receive 500 resumes within one hour. Also, whereas just a few years ago, less than 30% of companies used their web site for advertising job openings -in 2002, over 90% do so. So keep in mind: Less than 20% of all job openings are advertised -either on job boards or in newspapers.
***** http://www.monster.com/ A classmate posted his resume all over the Internet and reported that almost 90% of all of the hits he got were at this site. All the rest of his hits were at the next site. All the serious job nibbles that I've gotten are from the monster. -USE IT!

Before a face-to-face interview with a prospective employer, use the Internet
to conduct an ethics audit of the company. Any good search engine will find big
controversies the company has stumbled into. Then use these sites to dig deeper: • Business Ethics Magazine (www.business-ethics.com)
lists the 100 Best Corporate Citizens for 2002. • Business for Social Responsibility (www.bsr.org/Meta/MemberList.cfm)
lists many of its members. If your prospective employer is on the list, it means
the company is at least interested in exploring ethical issues. • Calvert Group (www.calvert.com)
posts a social index, which profiles companies that have passed its criteria and
produce safe, beneficial products with integrity and attention to employees and
the environment. • Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions (www.iit.edu/departments/csep)
contains hundreds of codes of ethics online. Click on "Codes of Ethics
Online" to see if your company is listed. • Domini 400 Social Index (www.domini.com/dsi400)
lists companies that uphold certain social-responsibility standards, including
commitment to the environment, employee diversity, charity, and human rights. Of
course, no list is perfect. The venerable Domini 400 included Enron at one
point. • Fortune magazine (www.fortune.com/lists/bestcompanies)
ranks every year the 100 best companies to work for. • Working Mother magazine (www.workingwoman.com)
ranks the best 100 companies for women who balance career and children.
