Houston Job Search Links

Here is a collection of job/career links which might be useful for the Houston job seeker.  A good source of the company listings is Houston Business Journal’s Book of Lists (which unfortunately is available only in print — although most local libraries possess a copy). This is a work in progress.  If a link doesn’t work, let me know idiotprogrammer at fastmailbox.net . Important Note:For personal reasons, I am generally not applying to any fossil fuel companies (read my explanation why); so I am not linking to them here.

References and Local Resources

Looking for resume help? if wandered into this web page and are looking to pay someone to write a topnotch resume, feel free to contact me. (idiotprogrammer at fastmailbox.net 713 893 3424). Seriously, my  resumes are my gift to humanity. I’ve given workshops about resume writing, written resumes for ex-cons and homeless people (just for the fun of it!)  and worked in vocational counseling for 4 years. For templates, see Google Docs’s wonderful collection of free resume templates.

General Career Listings and Specialized Queries

Indeed.com is the central hub for most job boards. It’s best to design good queries which can help you find what you want. Indeed includes results from other job boards like Monster.  Here are my queries:

    Although this post is old, I found it searching for jobs in the Houston area. It’s quite the list. Looks like you’ve done a lot of leg work, thank you!

    If you know anyone looking for analysts for energy companies in that area, please let me know!

  • Grant 10/10/2010, 1:21 am

    I’ve compiled a similar list, although updated. Thanks to your inspiration!


    Thank you and good luck!
