There are numerous job listings seeking computing professionals on careers.com, the IEEE’s careers site, and elsewhere. The ACM Career Resource Centre, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, careerspace.com, and many other sites offer testimonials and interviews with professionals currently working in computing careers.
