Links to Nifty Places
On The Web
- JobStar www.jobstar.org. . . (previously called JobSmart -- but it's exactly the same site)
Probably the classiest, sassiest, and most useful site for top caliber CAREER and JOBS information for California, with lots of goodies for anybody anywhere. Created and maintained by my good friend Mary-Ellen Mort (researcher-counselor-sleuth-extraordinaire) the Librarian-With-An-Attitude, on behalf of the Bay Area Library and Information System, Oakland, California. Zillions of links to other quality sites---but NOT just ANY old links; this has been done with discretion so you don't have to pick through a lot of garbage. Salary surveys and sample Resumes are the most popular features.
Hot tip: Check out "Ask Electra" thoroughly. This "E-Search Goddess" is a very savvy lady with expert job advice and tips on finding a vast array of targeted, valuable information on the WEB.
- Another hot tip: JobStar is the best place to get all that Salary Information, including a link to America's Career InfoNet's great interactive database for comparing wages for a particular occupation, from one city to another. JobStar won the prestigious annual Award for Excellence from the American Library Association, as an outstanding library resource project. AND, now JobStar is in the TOP TEN CAREER SITES on the planet!
