External sources for employment are becoming more and more necessary in times when our dwindling economy is taking a hit in the job market.

Media sourcing refers to online scouting in websites designed for professional networking. Such websites post jobs and requirements for employment. They often offer steps to apply, online background checks, and even contracts. Sites such as LinkedIn and HeadHunters are media sourcing job sites.

Employment agencies are usually sources for temporary employment or for job placement in different fields. People often visit employment agencies and some even pay to have the agency endorse their resume, make corrections to it and make it stand out to potential employers.

Job Fairs are events where several employers and business owners seek for potential employees. They all come together, set up a booth or a location in a common area and they accept resumes and other materials from prospect employees. An important thing to consider about job fairs is that they could also be used for companies to promote themselves rather than to employ future workers. Therefore, it is better to enter an employment agency or media sourcing which specialize in moving forward your professional information.
