JobWeb links to over 400 of the richest job- and career- related resources on the Internet, including company profiles. http://www.jobweb.org . [(michael@jobweb.org), net-hap, 12/28/95.]

The J. Edgar & Associates Careers Page, http://www.the-wire.com/careers , offers information-technology and engineering opportunities in Canada and Northeastern US. [(careers@the-wire.com), net-hap, 10/18/95.]

The Senior Staff is a job bank for US workers over 50. Many part-time jobs. http://srstaff.com/ , 408/371-9064, 408/371-3255 Fax. [Marian Gallagher (moose@ccnet.com), c.i.www.announce, 12/11/95. net-hap.] (Expanding, but currently limited to the San Franciso Bay Area.)

Federal Jobs Central has been matching people with federal jobs for over twenty years. http://www.fedjobs.com. [(tjc@interramp.com), net-hap, 12/17/95.]

Telecommuting jobs (and resumes) are listed free at http://www.cisc.com/tele.html . "We will shoot anybody who places get-rich-quick junk on our site." [Andrew Smith (smitha@qucis.queensu.ca), c.i.www.announce, 12/4/95. net-hap.]

For 1000 firms currently hiring home workers and telecommuters worldwide, see http://rio.atlantic.net/~mode/jobs. [James P. Morgan (database@freenet.tlh.fl.us), comp.infosystems, 12/16/95. net-hap.]

Commonwealth Jobsearch covers immigration, job finding, and resettlement services for Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. http://www.corpinfohub.com/cjs.htm . [net-hap, 10/31/95.]

If you need help finding a headhunter, check with IPA: an online association of over 1,200 employment recruiters and agencies. http://www.ipa.com/ipa/ . [Bill Vick (billvick@ipa.com), net-hap, 10/27/95.]

The Directory of Masters 1995 lists individual experts prepared to take on long-term apprentices. http://www.worldserver.pipex.com/nc/ISI/master.html. Published by the Apprentice Master Alliance. [(rhino@bbcnc.org), net-hap, 11/13/95.] (I've always had a fondness for apprenticeship jobs. There's such a feeling of community and continuity.)

The Information Technology Vendors' Executives Mailing List and Database lists over 15K senior executives at 12K firms. Other lists of telemarketing prospects are available. http://users.aol.com/mentorms . [(mentorms@gnn.com), net-hap, 10/30/95.]

(A rule of thumb is that if you mail to 1K executives -- and demonstrate good communication ability and attitude -- you can hope for 20 interviews and maybe four or five job offers. Try again two weeks later and you'll get an entirely different 20 prospects. If you're handicapped in some way, contact 2K or 3K executives. Postage is expensive, but a reasonable investment. Your percentages increase if you call first to verify addresses and job titles, and call afterward to "ask if your letter was received" and seek referrals.)

Career advice:

As the economy heats up, information systems managers are finding it much easier to job-hop. [IW, 11/20/95, p. 208. EDUPAGE.]
