G. Mark’s Answer

Okay, there are a lot of colloquial definitions of "good jobs", and most of them involve "respect" and "money". But the fact of the matter is that both of those are completely relative concepts to what you personally need. The first should ideally involve how much skill, determination and care you express in doing whatever job it is you have. The second is -- contrary to a lot of people's beliefs -- usually relative to what you spend. And that -- particularly in the US -- varies markedly. It's governed by what some call "Parkinson's Law", in that needs expand to consume whatever resources you have. If you have more money, you spend more money, on average. If your needs are modest, you don't need so much -- barring, let's say, cataclysmic needs like medical problems.

So that being said, let's say you focus on "a job you want to do" so you'll actually be happy. Here's the somewhat-less-than-impressive answer. You contact people. You visit. You have the internet, so use it and look at job boards. Seek training for something you'll actually like to do everyday. And folks who provide that training will likely be great contacts for putting you in communication with folks who will pay your to do that.

So a "good job" will be one that you like. And if people will pay money for you to do that thing, they'll be motivated to find you as much as you are to find them. Cool, huh?

As suggested by others start with Career/Job posting sites; however I will also suggest below options which will help you building your professional profile in long run:

  1. Create & continue update your linkedin profile with latest info
  2. Join Career/Tech Groups for any new job postings
  3. Create Technical blogs and share your knowledge + tips to other developers
  4. Contribute to Tech forums/groups
  5. Join local meetup groups; sometime they also share any local job posting

Hello!
There are a lot of places where you can find some good jobs. A great place to start looking is LinkedIn, make a profile and tell what kind of work you are interested in. That is a great site to be able to reach out to companies and get to know them better. LinkedIn is also a great place to build connections with other people who are also searching for work or even people who have just found work. Being able to connect can help you find the right job. Another place to look is your school. At the college I attended there were always job postings on the walls or boards looking for interns or part/full time employees. Make sure you know what you want to do and then go from there! Good luck!

Use your career center at your university to research job opportunities. Keep in touch with engineering professors, and go straight to company websites for job openings. (Career websites can be misleading.) Follow up applications with calls to the HR dept to show interest. Make sure your resume is sharp and error free.

Adam’s Answer

There are multiple places to find a good job. If you are looking to work while in school, I would recommend trying to find something close to home so it is easy to get there. For long term career opportunities, there are many websites such as Monster and Indeed. However, Networking is a great way to find opportunities as well. LinkedIn is a great networking site for job seekers. There are also many opportunities in the trades and labor industry. At school, check in with school counselors on anything they might be aware of also. Best of luck to you.
