Searching For A Job

Searching for a job can be a tedious process especially given the current shift to virual work in the job market today. Scams are common when looking at remote jobs. Job boards, such as Craigslist, can be filled with unmanicured jobs. Attention to detail is key. Be wary of words like: "Work from home". Search instead for words such as: remote, telecommunication, flexible schedule, work-life balance. Below are collected resources to find work both from home and remotely. Follow these links for more information on searching for employment:
