e-Learning Job Search - Online Resources

With turbulent times, shrinking training budgets, and a level of uncertainty, more e-learning professionals are searching for new opportunities. So, what are the best sites to search for an e-learning job?  Here are the sites I have found most helpful:

  

e-Learning Guild - You can search jobs posted on their site and you can post your resume there too. You do need to be a member, but the associate level membership is free.

  

ASTD - You can search jobs posted on their site and post your resume.

Dice - This site focuses on tech jobs, and e-learning jobs are included. This is definitely a good site to search if your focus is on the development end.

LinkedIn.com 

Linked In - Great site for professional networking, but you can also search for a job within the Linked In interface. You can either find positions posted by members or search positions posted on Internet job search engines. The results also include who in your network may be employed by the companies listed.

Indeed.com

Indeed - I like this site because it pulls results for many different job search sites, it's easy to add filters and to create job alerts.

SHRP.org Logo

SHRP - The Society for HR Professionals is not my first choice, but worth visiting. Many training departments fall under HR and they post e-learning position on SHRP. You may also post your resume on their site.

Also check you local college ISD programs. Some include job listings on their sites. They may also host networking events or career fairs.

Aside from the above, always network. Networking is the most effective way to find the next opportunity that is right for you. If you know of any other great resources for finding e-learning positions please add it to the comments section. Thanks!
