Professional Associations and Your Network

Many professional associations offer résumé databases and job banks as membership benefits, either through a presence on the Internet or in newsgroups. Check your association’s newsletter or other correspondence to get their URL. Even if an association doesn’t list jobs, it is a valuable resource for industry information and contacts for your network.
