GIS Job Websites

There are a number of websites that cater to those looking for jobs. Most charge the people looking to hire while those looking can post resumes/search for free. Take a look at GeoSearch (which has been around for quite a while), the GeoCommunity Jobs section, and GIS Jobs Clearinghouse, There are other, smaller websites out there, as well as traditional headhunters. I for one have never found a job on these websites, nor via a headhunter, but we are all different!

Salary Reference
It's tough to know what to expect for a salary, but various surveys and guides can give you some ballpark figures. The truth is many of the resources are quite old (1997/1998) and fewer and fewer are free. That means a better market for things like the GeoSearch Wage and Salary Survey and the URISA Salary Survey, which are updated annually.

RFP/Bid Services
The old staple of looking through paper documents for jobs to bid on is long gone. Now several organizations provide e-mail services or websites where contract work is posted. GISBid is a website based tool, with a fee. GeoCommunity has a mail out service, daily called GeoBid. If you want the federal side, an electronic version of Federal Business Opportunities Daily, now called FedBizOpps is the way to go.
