Job Hunting Resources [selected]

Here’s a listing of potential web resources for job hunting for the newly graduated:

Career Development eManual
A detailed guide intended for university students, but valuable for people at any career stage. It shows how to assess one’s personality, aptitudes, and values and how to match these to potential occupations. It gives advice on job hunting, practices, and reassessing one’s career progress. The emphasis is on self-development, being proactive, and professionalism, but the process comes across as fundamentally enjoyable and enhancing rather than daunting. From the University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.
