Tips for finding a job online

Despite the bleak national statistics — roughly 15 million people unemployed and 70 million more looking to make a career move — you can land a job via the internet.

Forbes Woman’s Julie Weingarden Dubin offers suggestions for job-hunting online, including: polishing your résumé daily, carefully selecting which positions to apply for, cleaning up any digital dirt that may give searchers a negative impression, and establishing an easy-to-find online presence.
