    Default Job Hunting - IT Work

    So aside from the typical sites like LinkedIn and such where are people going to find IT work postings?

    I know a good chunk of this is through word of mouth and knowing people but I don't have that option. I am currently at a point where I feel it maybe time to leave where I am and move to another company.

    I have been doing Level 2 and Level 3 stuff for the last 3 years and just feel like where am is becoming stagnant and won't have much in the way of growth.

    You want to leave your job in the middle of a recession and don't have the benefit of people to recommend you?

    Kiiiiinda sounds like you just got fired.

    Regardless, just talk to IT recruitment and/or services companies. Without friends, they're the only ones who can help you right now.

    Not fired. Just kind of had a wake up call today and feel that where I am at is not a good fit anymore.

    I realize the importance of a job right now with the recession but my sanity needs to be kept in check.

    What about a lateral move - a job where IT isnt 100% of the role maybe

    Are you looking for a job with an end-user or a computer company?

    If the former, hate to say it, but networking is king, though I landed my job out of the Herald classifieds, just happened upon a great opening.

    If the latter, a resume to the usual body shops. The ones that come to mind Compucon, Metafore, Graycon, and SHL, err EDS, err um HP.
