When you are connected to the Internet, you are keyed into one of the most powerful career tools in the history of commerce. That's right. For all the shortcomings, the Internet has helped link the best people with the best companies. Corporations are getting more efficient and employees are taking more control over their careers.

Your computer is a reservoir of job listings. Gone are the days of faxing resumes, stuffing envelopes and scrutinizing local classified ads. Many major companies have eliminated classified ads as a means of advertising open positions. Many human resources professionals and recruiters believe that the modern employee should know how to effectively use the Internet.

For that reason, many recruiters and sourcing professionals only post open jobs on the Internet. It's almost like a test. I've been on dozens of interviews in my short life and every time the hiring manager or recruiter has asked me how I found out about the job. When they learn that I discovered the opportunity on an online job board, they instantly know that I am capable of using the Internet.

These little things make a big difference in the hiring process. In 15 years, it has been estimated that over 90 percent of all job listings will only be promoted on the Internet. It's more cost effective for companies and more convenient for job seekers. If you are currently hunting for a new job, you need to have your resume on as many computer job listings as possible. This is the key to landing the job of your dreams.
