    I’d add that linkedin is a really good way to network with professionals in the group and to apply to jobs. It’s usually just one click and you’re good. Another way to network is to go to meetups in your city for your specific field.

    I have noticed that about companies these days. Either you have to reply via email to an ad in the newspaper, or you are going on the website sign up for an interview. It is the new age I guess.

    I have been down this path before. It is hard to get accepted through online job applications, however, searching online does make things easier than pounding the pavement.
