In many countries, the traditional avenue to find employment is through a recruiter or search firm. Printed newspapers are also still the standard resource for job classifieds in many places. In some continents, such as Africa, these two avenues are still most prevalent and there are fewer online resources.

Because of the rising incidence of identity theft, when responding to openings be cautious about providing too much of your private information until you are sure of the legitimacy of the job opportunity and organization. CRN has carefully recommended Internet resources that provide you with useful information and tools. Note that some web sites may include fee-based services. There is no obligation to utilize any site or purchase any services.
