I've spent many thousands of hours on the Internet searching for
information, jobs, contracts, people, and other items of
interest. You can literally find out anything! The trick is
learning how to find relevant and hidden information in an
efficient manner. This is the job of an 'Internet Sourcer.'

When I first started job hunting on the Internet, I would spend
countless hours searching for anything and everything. I would
search one site, then jump to another, and search some more. One

Internet is that most of the same job postings are duplicated

In the last three months of 2000, it is estimated that over 750
dot.com businesses went out of business forever.
It was to be expected and very predictable because far too many
dot.com enterprises were riding high on investor cash infusions,
were long on promises but produced little if any cash flow.
The promise of success never materialized and investors wisely
