Resources - ALL Occupations

Health Care Jobs, Medical Jobs, Hospital Jobs, Nursing Jobs

This section is excerpted from chapter three of Health Care Job Explosion!, 4th edition. It presents job resources that are useful for many health care occupations. Associations or publications that focus on a narrow range of professions or on a single specialty are placed with the discussion of the specific professions. After reviewing these resources refer to the Site Map to locate more job sources for your specific vocation.  

There are several excellent books available such as the author's Health Care Job Explosion!  ($19.95) and The Book of U.S. Government Jobs ($21.95) which targets federal government employment and is a valuable resource for those seeking jobs with Uncle Sam. Look up this title at your local library or bookstore or order with all major credit cards by calling 1-800-782-7424.

How Resources Are Organized


The resource section begins with a few sites that teach you how to use the Internet. The Internet is a rapidly evolving information source, so expect some of the URLs (addresses) to have changed by the time you begin your job search. If the site is still available, but at a different "address," you can phone the sponsoring organization or use one of the search engines listed below to find it. Remember, an hour or so invested in learning how to "surf the net" will pay off in many hours and much frustration--saved later. The Internet is an important source for employment opportunities, career information and networking. The larger Internet service providers frequently provide their members with employment ads or links to employment web sites. If you do not have a computer, many public and college libraries can provide Internet access.


Resources include professional associations, Internet sites, employment advertising, directories, and job related books. Job opening resources are comprised of publications with job ads, web sites with job ads, job hotlines, placement services, and job fairs. Associations frequently have career information and advice on education. Some web sites feature employment ads and directories as well as career information. All resources are listed alphabetically by association or title. The larger resources are underlined. Appendix A provides a comprehensive guide to locating health care companies that may also offer job opportunities. Also included are web sites that list medical companies. Contact their employment offices for job possibilities.


One resource that we can't list specifically is your local college or university. Many have career descriptions available at a central information office, in individual departments, or on their web sites. Most do not require you to be a student to access information. A small sampling of the best university web sites are listed below.
