Because of the burdens of the worldwide financial crisis, many people are left unemployed for months with no means of paying off their mortgages, bills, and everyday necessities. Sounds terrible, doesn't it? Believe it or not, that's not the end of the story.

A lot of college graduates are left with nothing but a college degree and a resume that won't even get them through the job interview.

They strive to apply to all kinds of jobs that fit their qualifications, but a big 60% of the time their efforts fail to land them in a good paying job. Because of this, the World Wide Web has become the final and (surprisingly) most preferred tool that will help these job seekers find jobs online.

There are now over a hundred job directories online that cater to people who are jobless and in dire need of a job. These directories serve as the medium between companies and job seekers, allowing the latter to send their cover letters and resumes online to their chosen companies' online databases without having to worry about spending a lot of time and money travelling just to submit their resumes personally.

Though this makes the whole process a lot more convenient, there are still certain rules to be followed if you want to find jobs online. Here are some of the most important rules to remember:

Never submit your resume to a particular company without putting emphasis on achievements, past work experience, skills, and the like that the company is looking for in a potential candidate.

Most online companies use applicant tracking systems wherein the resumes with the most number of keywords focused by the searches are picked out from the hundreds of resumes submitted.

Don't settle for just any job. If you see your dream job posted in one of the job ads sent to your email, immediately grab that opportunity before someone gets it.

Lastly, take the time to research on the background, history, and job description of the company you are interested to work for. This is a very important rule if you want to find jobs online that will actually hire you.
