Looking for work in the Lou? Pounding the pavement and mailing out resumes are still valid methods, but today’s smart jobseekers make heavy use of online and local resources. National websites like Craigslist, Monster and Careerbuilder are useful. Facebook, Twitter and Linked In let you network. But don’t overlook St. Louis’ local publications, websites, job fairs and other resources.

If you’re looking for an executive position in the St. Louis area, the Business Journal’s website might be your first stop. The search is powered by indeed.com, a more generic national job search engine, but the Journal has clearly done the preliminary work of targeting the search. The jobs listed here are all local to St. Louis and are high-powered positions for managers, vice presidents, financial analysts, outside salespeople and other highly skilled white collar positions. Searches can be further targeted by category or by company. You can also visit the Journal’s section of Company Profiles to learn more about local employers.
