A monster choice of Web sites to help people find work all over the world are listed in a new book - Webtracks; A Jobseekers Guide to the World Wide Web.

Waikato Polytechnic computer course tutor Vic Flagg, who wrote the New Zealand Jobfinders handbook, rates a variety of more than 120 URL listed sites he has found.

A Top 10 list of best sites is also given, which can be useful in hunting for work when cybercafes can charge $1 upwards for just 10 minutes of Web time.

His guide shows you how to use the URLs to access resources to do the job search on the Web, use search engines to actually “search” the Web instead of merely “surfing” the Web by clicking on hyperlinks.

He also tells you how to build a portable library of job-search resources using the URL’s, the bookmarking facility of your browser and a floppy disc.

There is also advice on developing your skills profiles, researching careers and companies, preparing CVs, networking for those hidden jobs and talking to the right people and finally, presenting yourself at interview.

Web sites given in the book cover these topics as well as listing jobs.

Overseas Web sites are included, along with sites aimed at students and those seeking work in the military, health sector, voluntary sector and government.

IT workers are also catered for by Web sites covering a range of recruitment agents.
