10 Great Job Resources for IT Pros | Exectweets

10 Great Job Resources for IT Pros | Exectweets

A good reference for IT Pros...

barb dybwad | Apr 12, 2010

keyboardMaybe you’re (f)unemployed, getting restless at your current gig, or just between projects — regardless, as an information technology professional there’s almost no place better to score your next job or contract than online. After you’ve polished up your resume, spruced up your personal blog, and given some thought to exactly what color your next parachute ought to be, where should you start your official job search efforts?

Read on to check out our selection of helpful job hunt-related resources for IT Pros. And of course, if we missed any of your favorite gems be sure to share with everyone in the comments.

1. LinkedIn

It’s difficult to write a job resources post for almost any industry without including the classic professional social networking site LinkedIn. The site remains one of the premier online destinations for finding, making, and maintaining new business contacts, and should be thought of as having long-lasting networking value over time beyond simply its transactional job search utility.

With the addition of a faceted search feature late last year, LinkedIn made it even easier to finely hone in on the important opportunities and connections that really fit your background, expertise, and career interests.

2. Simply Hired

With an extensive database of 5 million jobs, Simply Hired also maintains an extensive reach across popular technology and other seminal web sites with its hosted job board software. Although not specifically restricted to IT opportunities, Simply Hired’s DNA is soaking in new media and web startup ethos and features a high percentage of technical positions in a wide variety of fields.


Tag-lined “the career hub for tech insiders,” DICE offers extensive job listings paired with career resources including news, advice, and discussion boards. You can search at last count over 62,000 available technology-related jobs by keyword, skill, or job title, by location, and by company.

The career center includes news on trends in employment, technology trends, management trends, and a Dice Learning section featuring a search engine geared towards technical training and certification results. A DiceTV section offers video training on topics like giving better presentations, improving your interviewing skills, the etiquette of follow-up contacts and more.

4. Just Tech Jobs

With a name like Just Tech Jobs, this site is not being cryptic about its target market. You can post your resume and search jobs by keyword, location, job duration (full-time, part-time, or freelance/temporary), and age of posting, plus sort the results by relevance, location, or date posted. Any search you perform can be saved as a Job Search Agent, which sends you email alerts with new jobs matching your selected criteria.

5. Startup Hire

Although it’s technically not restricted just to IT jobs, Startup Hire includes thousands of opportunities at companies backed by venture capital, many of which are positioned within the tech industry. Opportunities range from software engineering and server-side support positions on up into management and executive-level jobs in a number of early to late-stage startups eager to find new IT talent.

6. CyberCoders

From full-time positions to part-time or temporary contract work, CyberCoders can generate worthwhile leads within the tech sector as well as IT-related jobs in other industries from healthcare and education to finance, manufacturing, and biotech. You can search for jobs, submit your resume, and set up job alerts via email based on chosen search terms. They also offer a referral rewards program for bringing friends and colleagues in as users of the site.

7. Glassdoor

This one’s not a job search site, but could be seminal in negotiating your next salary requirements or researching the company culture of your potential offers. Glassdoor posts job salaries by title and industry, actual interview questions used by recruiters and HR personnel, and reviews of companies by employees who currently work or have previously worked at specific businesses.

If you’re fielding an offer or several and want to compare the “inside scoop” on the various companies, Glassdoor could be one of the important tools to help make your final decision. It’s also a great place to do research preparation on particular companies even before applying, or when heading in for an interview.

8. indeed

Although not specific to the technology industry, is one of the larger job search engines with over a million available searchable positions and a large international footprint. Here too you can search salary levels to help with negotiations, from over 50 million jobs that were available within the past year.

The site also offers a robust “trends” engine, which graphs the percentage of matching postings based on your keyword searches. This can help identify which sectors and niches are growing and getting hotter, potentially helping you figure out where your chances are optimal or even giving you an idea of what new job skills you might want to pick up or freshen up as you pursue the next stage in your career.

9. Association for Computing Machinery

The ACM’s Career & Job Center brings together computer industry professionals to connect with each other, from job seekers to talent seekers. You can post a resume, search jobs, get customized alerts, and manage your job-related messaging, and check out a number of career resources. From tips on surviving that interview to improving your resume to writing an attention-grabbing cover letter, the ACM content library is also updated with career and industry-related news.

10. IT Toolbox

The Job Center at IT Toolbox is part of a larger knowledge sharing community for information technology professionals, making it a nice well-rounded resource for job searching and skills improvement. An extensive assortment of blogs, wikis, knowledge bases, and groups make IT Toolbox both a resource and a networking opportunity for communicating with peers and connecting with recruiters on topics you know intimately.

Malaysia Internet Penetration - DIGITAL MEDIA ACROSS ASIA

A good study and statictic about Malaysia Internet Penetration by clarestalwj , Original post as the below link site:
Malaysia Internet Penetration - DIGITAL MEDIA ACROSS ASIA

Malaysia Internet PenetrationThis is a featured page

In this section:

Looking outward: international comparison
1. Internet users in ASEAN countries
2. Internet users in other measured countries

Looking inward: national statistics on internet users
1. Growth
2. Age group
3. Gender
4. Education level
5. Income level
6. Location
7. Hours spent online
8. Usage of internet

More and more Malaysians are embracing the internet technology into their lives. From the very low penetration rate of 15% in 2000, the number rose exponentially to 62.8% by the end of 2008. How does this number compare to other countries? Is internet in Malaysia dominated solely by the young and educated? How much time do Malaysian users spend on the internet? And what do they do online?

On this page, you will find the answers to these questions and many more, illustrated with facts and figures from the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).

Looking Outward: International Comparison
1) Internet users in ASEAN countries (per 100 inhabitants)

Among ASEAN Countries, Malaysia is one of the most promient countries as it ranks as number 2 in terms of internet penetration, with 57.80 of every 100 Malaysians being internet users. It is positioned just behind Singapore. Trailing behind at number 3 is neighboring country Brunei Darussalam, followed by Thailand, Vietnam, Phillippines, Indonesia, Lao P.D.R., Cambodia, and lastly Myanmar.

The latest comparison data available is extracted from the first quarter of 2008. However, it is important to note that by the end of 2008, internet penetration in Malaysia had reached 62.8%.
2) Internet users in other measured countries (per 100 inhabitants)

Although Malaysia is positioned at number 2 among ASEAN Countries, on a broader scope, she is still behind countries such as Japan, South Korea, USA, UK, and Taiwan. Internet penetration rate in Japan stood at 73.46%, far ahead of Malaysia. However, compared to the world penetration rate of 22.04%,However, it is noteworthy that Malaysia's penetration rate is well above the average.

Looking Inward: National Statistic on Internet Users
1) Growth (per 100 inhabitants)

YEAR Users Population % Pen. Usage Source
2000 3,700,000 24,645,600 15.0 % ITU
2005 10,040,000 26,500,699 37.9 % C.I.Almanac
2006 11,016,000 28,294,120 38.9 % ITU
2007 13,528,200 28,294,120 47.8 % MCMC
2008 15,868,000 25,274,133 62.8 % MCMC

By the end of 2008, 62.8% of Malaysians were internet users, up from only 15% in 2000.

This number is expected to further increase in the years to come as the High Speed Broadband project by the Malaysian government takes off in 2009. The project will end the nationwide rant about slow internet connection.

Also, considering the high penetration rate, it is astonishing that Malaysian companies spend only 0.6% on internet advertising. Why is this so? The ad spending paradox is going on here.

You can also find more about slow internet speed and the ad spending paradox in the Internet Implication page.
2) Age group (per 100 household users)

There was a substantial hike in numbers from the below 15 years old age group to the 15-19 age bracket. It seems that Malaysian teenagers mostly start using internet in upper secondary school (ninth year of formal education). The next age group seems to retain the interest to use internet. This probably results from the adoption of internet technology by Malaysian universities and other academic institutions.

3) Gender (per 100 household users)


The distribution of internet users across gender are somewhat even. 51.9% of Malaysian household internet users are male, while 48.1% of Malaysian household internet users are female.
4) Education level (per 100 household users)


35.1% of household internet users are degree holders. This is the largest group, followed by those with secondary school as their highest education (31.5%), and diploma holders (30.9%). Indeed, it seems that Malaysians pick up their interest in internet usage when they started going through secondary education. This explains the small percentage of users with primary education as their highest qualification (1.3%), and the equally small percentage of users with no education (1.3%). As the nation and its education system gradually develops, numbers of internet users are expected to rise.
5) Income level (per 100 household users)


Those in the income bracket of RM1000 - 3000 comprise the largest group of internet users. 46.1% of those using internet earns RM1000 - 3000 per year. The middle-income group make the bulk of internet users in Malaysia.
6) Location (per 100 household users)


In terms of penetration in urban/rural area, 85.30% of users live in the urban area, while the rest, 14.7% live in the rural area. This is due to better infrastructures and facilities to support online platforms in urban areas.

The highest internet penetration rate in a city can be found in Klang Valley (Kuala Lumpur). It stood at 13.0% by the end of 2008.
7) Hours spent online (per 100 household users)


28% Malaysian internet users use internet for less than 4 hours per week, while 23.2% use internet for 4-8 hours per week. 193% use internet for 8-15 hours per week. The number seems to drop for users who are using the internet for 15-22 hours, and 22-28 hours. It rose again to 16% for those who use internet for 28 hours and above.
8) Usage of Internet (per 100 household users)


As of 2008, 94.4% of Malaysian internet users primarily use the internet for obtaining information, while 84.70% use internet for communication purposes by text (email, chat). 64.5% of internet users in Malaysia use the internet for education purposes. From this, it can be deduced that the educational bodies in Malaysia have embra

Traditional Media
1) Short Background of Traditional Media in Malaysia

The Printing Presses and Publications Act of 1984 requires all publications in Malaysia to obtain licenses that can be revoked at will by the Minister for Home Affairs. The minister's decisions are final, and there are no judicial reviews available.
UMNO (Malaysia's ruling political party) and its allies in the ruling Barisan National coalition directly own or control all major newspapers, radio and television stations, making it difficult for alternative voices to be disseminated to the public.

The government halted the production of four newspapers in 1987 as they publicised criticism of its policies. As such, the Malaysian press is extremely careful when dealing with Malaysia’s multicultural foundations. To date, there are more than 80 daily and weekly newspapers in various languages such as Malay, English, Chinese and Tamil (size of segment of each newspaper language also in this order).
Though the government advocates freedom of speech and a free press, it is said to restrict the flow of information in practice. Certain issues like citizenship of race outside that of Malays and the extraordinary position of Malays in the social order are considered sensitive and citizens must refrain from discussnig about them. The media generally practices self censorship and often provides optimistic and noncritical reports of governmental activities.
