(tonal music) Hi. My name is Jolie Miller. And a warm welcome to job hunting online. In this course, we'll walk through on and offline prep you'll need to do to get ready to job hunt. Then we'll take a tour of job hunting on LinkedIn and discover how to interact with other prominent job boards such as Glassdoor, Simply Hired and Indeed. Rather than taking you through every feature of these sites, I'll show you the most relevant tips you'll need to navigate each interface with ease and speed.

We'll also discuss how to work with recruiters and scan company websites to find jobs. The course wraps up with a hands-on workshop, where we'll follow the job hunting process from start to finish: finding the right ad, customizing a resume and cover, and clicking submit. The motto for this course is always be job hunting, whether you need a new position right away, might look in the next few months, or are happy where you are. It keeps you informed about your industry, trends and change in qualifications employers are looking for.

So, let's get started job hunting online.
