The internet has been a great stimulus to careers education generally and there are a wide range of sites offering information.
The two main approaches are
• Sites which give careers help and advice and
• Those which are solely for job hunting and making applications directly to companies electronically.
As with all research on the internet care must be taken to ensure that the site visited is safe and effective.
Below are a selection of sites we recommend to view:
