Are you a new graduate eager to secure your corner of the workplace? Or perhaps you've been working for a while and are looking to switch careers, but don't know where to start? Whichever you are, the key to employment is visibility: future employers and recruiters are searching to fill their vacancies just as much as you are looking for a job. That search begins on the web. Once you've honed your resume to perfection, upload them to these sites:







A must for any serious jobseeker: the Philippines most visited, widely used site, with close ties to such coveted workplaces as Colgate-Palmolive, Rustan's, and San Miguel. Allows you to search for openings and apply directly.



Good: You'll find what seems to be the largest listing of jobs in Manila online.







For the seeker with a bit more experience, LinkedIn was built for professional networking but is also proving a handy place for recruiters sourcing for candidates. It also allows you to highlight your strengths and skills (while improving searchability) through its profile page.


Good: Great for networking and making contact with possible future employers.







JobsDB calls itself Asia Pacific's number 1 job site and offers events and career resources aside from job search functions. Its edge? The Find Jobs Overseas button is perfect for those looking to work abroad.


Bad: Is not as comprehensive as Jobstreet.




Whether at work or at home, these gadgets can help you save the environment one step at a time!



So you really, really want to work abroad, eh? Hop on over to this site and search listings by specialization, application volume, POEA job orders and placement fee, among others.


Good: Nicely organized search function.


With quick links letting you search for jobs by province (for those outside NCR), jobs for new graduates and OJT/part-time jobs, this site gets you to a good match quickly and easily.


Bad: Lots of links to stock/filler content.



An old stalwart, also works with top employers. Recent listings include opening at Accenture, Coca-Cola, and PhilamLife.


Bad: Layout seems stuck in 2002.





Monster Philippines


Founded in 1994, led the way in online job-seeking in the US, and now it's in our shores. With a pretty and easy-to-use interface and access to more than 3,000 potential employers, that's great news for us.


Good: Tech and customer service-oriented listings.



Offers a free web address for your online resume -- handy when you're trying to get noticed on Twitter (hint: companies like Accenture and Google have Twitter accounts for their human resource/hiring departments - best follow them!)


Bad: If you're only looking for big companies and corporate openings, you may be disappointed with the looser listings posted here.



When you're done with uploading your resume and updating your profile, check out some of these websites and get your geek on.




Craigslist Manila


You might have heard of Craigslist as THE place to get anything in the States; its Manila site is also a handy place to search for jobs, especially the virtual/work-from-home/freelance kind.


Bad: Since anyone is free to post job openings, apply at your own risk.





Career Guide


Operated by The Philippine Star and frequented by its advertisers - can't hurt to have a place here.


Good: "Send my resume" button cuts through the extra clicks and essay questions found in other sites.



Good luck and happy hunting!
