Local Job Leads for Your Search

I’m ashamed. I’ve been sitting on information that could be beneficial to many, if not all, of you. It wasn’t intentional. It was an oversight. It was due to the pressures of time and commitments and just plain getting more people to read the words. But my eyes are opened and now it’s time to share not just one job opportunities site with you but two.

Local JobNetwork has websites with job postings, career and job search advice, information about employers, and more. It’s a site that holds local jobs for all 50 states (none of the territories) and all sorts of other goodies to spur your movement through the career and job doors. Although your search may begin on the Milwaukee Job Network page, if you click on the logo link in the bottom right-hand corner of the page, you’ll find the map that shows all of the site’s locations and the one that is most appropriate for your needs. It’s not only for job seekers, it’s also for employers.

Why am I ashamed? Because I’ve been writing for them for a year now. is another site that holds a collection of local sites across the southern belt of the United States. It posts blogs by Community Relations representatives who provide information and advice about employment venues, opportunities, and strategies. They also feature informational videos. Although I haven’t viewed any of the videos, the captions that accompany them are intriguing. Again, this is a site not just for job seekers but also for employers.

To find the area of most interest to your search, all you have to do is type in the zip code you’re interested in researching. Areas they serve include:

Disability Resources

Incidentally, I also recently discovered a site that specializes on empowerment of those with impairments of various types. It doesn’t appear Disaboom caters to vision limitations, but they do address many of the other types of life-changing events. I was especially in awe of Olympics contender John Register’s story.
