Guide to Job Search Tools

The internet produces huge amounts of new information, and new situations, every day.

Online job searching is a lot more convenient than the old newspaper-and-prayer type of job search used to be, but just finding things takes time, and keeping up to date isn't too easy, either.

As an international employment site, we see it all. We have to stay current with our own information, and it's an ongoing job just keeping track of how the employment market is changing.

Global business culture is evolving, and as the New Economy takes shape, the internet itself is becoming the workplace.

So we've put together a lot of links, articles, and generally useful stuff to try and make every page on the site effective.

Glossary - This is the terminology and language of the employment market, like a dictionary.
