Top Job Search Websites

by Easter on June 2, 2010

There are so many job search websites out there. It can be overwhelming and discouraging to go through so many. There are two top job search websites that I recommend you start with.

The first website is Indeed which is a search engine that compiles thousands of job listings, “allowing job seekers to find jobs posted on thousands of company career sites and job boards.” The quote is from their website. In other words, you can find listings from more than one site at Indeed. I recommend that you start here.

The other top job search website I recommend is Craig’s List. It is sometimes overlooked by job seekers, but is loaded with local job listings. There is an advantage for companies to post their jobs on Craig’s List, and that is the price.  A single job posting on a job search site like Monster can cost well over $300. A job posting on Craig’s List is only $25.

Companies that don’t have a big budget for job postings love to use Craig’s List. This includes smaller companies, and sometimes these smaller companies do not have as big a pool of candidates vying for the job. You will also find that as the year progresses, and as companies are depleting their job advertising budget, they use Craig’s List to save money.

Pace yourself with the job search websites. I recommend going through no more than two sites per day. When you see a posting that looks good, stop, take the time to apply now. Don’t save a bunch to go back to, and then have ten or twelve resumes to send. That’s when you can get overwhelmed and not want to send any.

It’s better to send just one or two resumes in a day, then to have ten postings that you will send a resume to, when you feel up to it.
