Company Websites It is highly recommended that you go directly to a company’s website to find and apply for current job postings.
Networking. Talk to faculty members, friends and anyone else who can possibly serve as a contact for you. Join professional organizations, attend professional conferences, and get involved in volunteer activities. Go to this website for more networking information. http://enetsc.com/JobSearchTips14.htm
Print Media. While much of the job posting world has gone online, it is still a good idea to check newspaper classified ads, U of A department bulletin boards that contain job postings, and to pick up information at job fairs.
Cold Calls. Are you interested in a particular company but you don’t have any contacts there? Do a cold call! Call them and express your interest. Ask them for a contact person so that you can send a cover letter and resume asking if they have postings that fit your background. The key to making this work is to sell them on why you are interested in THEIR company and to direct your cover letter and resume to a specific person.
