    Default Where do you look for a job?

    So I am a recruiter in the DC metro area. There is an extreme shortage of Java resources in the area. This makes my job difficult. So I have one easy question, where do you look for a job? I understand there are a lot of layers to this question, but let's see where it goes. Thanks a lot for your help.

    in job-hunting, people first look/post on the newspaper jobs section ...if that doesn't work they go to companies that find for them jobs, after that they look all over the area for someone needing an employee

    I use good old craigslist, the same as hundred of years ago. Also another great way is to send your CV directly to those companies where you would like to work. I never did that myself, but a lot of people I know used this method and it was pretty successful. Also here are some links that might be useful while job seeking

    I don't have to look for a job - I made a LinkedIn account richly detailed with my technical experience and ever since people are throwing job offers at me; I get at least four "career opportunities" a week. That's also the thing - your job is difficult because you also have a huge competition snagging the resources right from under your nose.

    Funny enough my current job I got through a way you will find familiar: a recruiter who has a routine of calling me every six months called me in just the right moment, and by the next week I was switching employer. Sometimes the stars are just right.
