We also have a page with links to information on How to File for Unemployment Benefits for all states.You may also want to look at our pages for Trade Shows & Career Fairs and Job Search and Networking Groups.

Large Job Banks with a Local Focus

Internet Job Source
…links to government jobs in most states, dozens of agencies within the federal government, and many Fortune 500 companies. Search for a job by major industry or state, or click to check out the major newspapers, magazines, and other news and government resources available through this site.
…a job board focused on local listings, and by local I mean specific cities / regions within each state plus the District of Columbia. Select your targeted state, then browse by job category or location. I like the fact they tell you how many listings are under each category. They also add local economic news and occupational information for each state and each city (if available).
