We’ve linked to the Globe Miami area for openings on the sites listed
below. These sites can be a good source for knowing what jobs are
available, particularly for positions in the private sector, but beware: 
some openings listed are work for yourself opportunities or solicitations
for independent contractors rather than salaried employment, and others
may require relocation. 
          While you may be able to apply directly with the employer for
some of the openings you see, many of the jobs listed on these websites
require you to submit your resume to the website, rather than to the
employer.   And some may require you to provide your personal
information like an email address. 
          This warning is not meant to discredit any of the sites below. As
far as we know, all are legitimate ventures, offering help to job seekers.
But we have heard from many of you who want to apply directly with
an employer and do not wish to provide personal info to anyone else. If
that’s the case with you, then use the information on the sites below to
learn what openings are available and then apply on your own.
