[vox-jobs] help, i'm overwhelmed. how to find a job?



hi all,

i've never had a problem finding a job before.  they just seemed to come
my way, and i always seemed to get the job of my choice.  but now i'm
doing it for reals, and am finding the task supremely daunting.

i'm moving to princeton, new jersey in august and i need to find a job.
there are two problems:

1. there's so much i can do and am interested in that it's hard to even
   nail down what to look for.

   programming, administration, physics, numerical modeling,
   mathematics, EE...  i have so many skills that it's confusing to
   even look for jobs.

2. there's a deluge of "job sites".  the web seems to have an endless
   stream of job sites.

one thing i HAVE figured out is thank god for DSL.  this whole process
would be impossible if i only had modem speed.  i also figured out that
local newspapers are all but useless for our field.


i'm asking for advice from people who are searching for jobs.  what are
some of the websites i should be looking at?  are there any sites that
are clearly better for people looking for tech jobs?

other than google, is there a way of building a list of all the big name
companies near princeton (like IBM, HP, AT&T, etc)?

any other things or services i should be made aware of in online job
hunting?

any help appreciated.

pete
