When I do my job search and networking seminars I am frequently asked if I know of local career sites in a given area. Recent examples would be a local job site in Boston, a pr/marketing networking group in New York City or nonpartisan think tanks in Washington, D.C.
I came to realize that there is no web site (at last that I could easily find) that acts as a central career resource. So I started one, OnlineCareerHub “Your Career Resource Portal”.
The idea is to put together a list of career oriented sites for cities across the country. I have the Minneapolis page up and running which only took about ten minutes to find web sites I had bookmarked.
Other cities that will be added in the coming weeks are: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Minneapolis, New York City, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.
Other cities will be added too but this is where I am starting.
Categories are likely to change but so far I am looking for these kinds of sites:
Local Trade, Networking, Association sites
Local Job Banks
U.S. Job Banks
Local Publications, Daily and Weekly
Local Publications, Monthly
Social Networking Sites
Local/Regional Economic and Employment Statistics
College Career Center Sites
Currently I am using FreeWebs to build and host the site. I anticipate building a site specifically for OnlineCareerHub but for the interim this is working well to collect and post information.
