Professional Associations

Many fields have large professional associations that can assist job seekers in their transition into the job market. These organizations typically have online resources available to members (and many times non-members) that provide pertinent information about gaining a job and being successful in their specific field.

Also, many of these organizations have specialized job boards, which makes searching more lucrative for job seekers. These organizations provide a great networking opportunity as well, especially if the association provides its member list to the public. Take the time to search out the professional associations in your field and utilize the resources available online.
