We at Everyday Interview Tips strive to bring you the best information we can about job search and the job interview process. Every day we compile information on how to answer interview questions, interview techniques, interview protocol and so on. The information we compile is meant to be useful to just about everyone.
Still, there is a segment of the population that is unable to benefit from our interview tips – those that cannot find an open job in the first place. Since our goal is to be useful to everyone, here are 5 of the best job search engines available so that you can find your dream job, come back, and learn how to ace the interview.
Best Job Search Sites
Here’s the deal with Craigslist. From a “will I get a job interview” perspective, it’s not great. Thousands of people comb craigslist every day looking for new jobs, and any job posted on craigslist is bound to receive hundreds of applications. However, craigslist is now the go-to website for most small businesses, and that makes it extremely valuable for job searchers.
Indeed combs the job boards, specific company websites, and even newspaper classified ads and brings all of those together into one comprehensive search engine. For many job seekers, Indeed is their only source for posted jobs. Over 1 million new jobs get listed everyday on Indeed.com, helping you find the perfect job for you.
Though they are two separate websites, they are grouped together here because they are essentially the same type of website. They get specific job listings from companies that may not be posted on other websites with a number of interactive tools and advice columns to help you with your job search. These are the two biggest names in job searching, and while Indeed may be slightly better, those two websites are nothing to sneeze at.
Most job posting boards are designed to thrust you into the corporate world. However, what if you want to make a difference, or work in a field that is extremely rewarding? For that, you go to Idealist, where you will find a number of non-profit jobs in your area for all different levels of experience. The pay at these jobs is low, but the satisfaction level is high.
Simply Hired is similar to Indeed, except that you can find jobs in categories. It also has a Facebook integration feature that searches for your friend’s companies (in case the idea of working with a friend appeals to you).
Looking For Work
The above represents a number of job search engines that will help you find the career you are looking for. Don’t forget to keep track of the jobs you apply to because you will often find the same position posted on each website. Applying to the same job twice is sloppy and you won’t get the job.
