One thing to watch out for, especially if you are looking on online sites like Monster, are scams. Never apply for a job where they want you to send money or bank account details as part of the application. You should only give bank details either to get your benefits or once you are hired at a new job to get paid. Also most of the 'work at home' jobs are scams. If you feel tempted by one, Google the company involved to see what others have said about them.
