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.

On this book’s companion Web site (www.patcriscito.com) you will find a list of associations with a presence on the Internet, divided into industry classifications. For more associations, use the search engines discussed in Chapter 12 or check the following meta-sites:
