Remember, as stated earlier, 80 percent of all jobs are not advertised in newspapers or on the Internet.

While that might change rapidly, the Internet is still an interesting source of jobs and can help you quickly seek out advertised positions in select regions of the U.S. or internationally. A combination of the Internet, newspapers, professional publications, and networks is highly recommend.
