Having a professional eProfile on LinkedIn is one step toward networking for career development. LinkedIn algorithms scan the published profiles and send you notices of jobs that fit your profile. In addition to this job-match technology, there are a number of web-based employment databases that are designed to connect job seekers with opportunities. Job seekers upload their resumes so that employers can search through the talent pool. In this discussion, we will examine the benefits and drawbacks of utilizing job search databases and recruitment technologies.
Here are some links to job databases for you to explore:
