With all the focus on online job searching, it's important to remember that some employers recruit the old fashioned way. Smaller local companies don't always post on job boards or on their company web site, so you may not find their job openings online. Instead, they advertise in their local newspaper or pennysaver.
In fact, I'm seeing more help wanted ads in my local newspapers than I have in a long time. My daily paper had two pages of help wanted ads every day this week. My Sunday paper had quite a few large display ads like we used to see every week. Plus, some of them were for top local companies with multiple job openings.
So, don't forget to check your newspaper's classified section. You don't need to run to the store to buy the latest edition of the paper. Online newspaper editions which contain the help wanted classified ads are available for most papers and the help wanted ads are typically searchable by date, category, keyword and location.
