Main Feature: Entry-level Jobs Starring New Jersey

For finding entry-level job opportunities in New Jersey (or really any city) try looking at the local newspapers for job postings. Most newspapers nowadays have local newspapers posted on the web or at least online editions of their most popular daily newspapers. Of course there will be all sorts of jobs listed, not just entry-level job opportunities, but you can get an idea of the types of jobs that are needed in New Jersey.
If you are someone who is thinking of moving to New Jersey and want to see what the job market looks like then this seems like a good idea (along with checking out sites like Craig’s List) to look into before packing up everything and moving. If you currently reside in the New Jersey area, looking at the job listing pages seems more direct than searching using online job search sites.
Then again there are also ways to restrict searches using online search sites as well. Only search for entry-level job opportunities in New Jersey using something like Monstertrak that allows you to search for internships and job opportunities alike. While Monstertrak is limited to college students and helping find their first job opportunities, this is the basic idea. Then of course there are always government sites that have tons of information on the state in question, including job opportunities. So have fun, learn new things and find that entry-level job!!

Turn Around Slowly and Assume the Search for Entry-Level Law Enforcement Jobs (in New Jersey)

A job in law enforcement is not for the ill at heart, and now that I’ve decided you are not (humor me)…let’s find you a nice entry-level law enforcement job—in the New Jersey area no less.
Start with the New Jersey Department of Personnel (NJDOP) and you will find that every entry-level law enforcement job seeker must apply for, and pass, the Law Enforcement Exam (LEE). There is also a training course offered to prepare for this examination (LEEP—the P is for “preparation”).
Okay, once all you entry-level law enforcement people are qualified, start looking at sites specifically tailored for the New Jersey area. I suggest flipdog.com, which has a list of jobs and career resources (provided by monster.com) and all those other nice job helping tools. If you decided that New Jersey is not where you want to be, well, other cities are listed there too, just for your convenience. You can also check out smarthunt.com to see what turns up there.
To keep up with all your law-enforcement news and events go to NJLawman.com, which provides news and headlines for the New Jersey area, as well as links leading to the LEE and LEEP as well. It’s a plethora of law enforcement fun. Check out the links and enforce the law!
