Five Great Job Search Engines
Whether you are looking for a full-time job, part-time job, telecommuting, office-based work or just looking to add a bit of extra income in a second job, there are several job search engines out there that are at your fingertips that allow for you to look for job listings.
Here are a few job site listings that every job seeker should keep in their back pocket. There are a few common actions that every job seeker will need to take such as setting up their profile and posting a resume on these job sites. Most are free but beware others may have a cost tied to their services.
Indeed.com is a free job search engine that offers one the ability to search millions of job listings through use of keyword search/phrases or specific job roles and/or titles or company name. You can search by city, zip code and/or country. From jobs for degreed professionals to part-time jobs to independent contractor/freelance type roles, Indeed.com allows job hunters to search and to be found by prospective employers. Interested parties can post their resumes with the intent/hope of being discovered. Job seekers can also set up email alerts to receive updates of new job listings periodically whether weekly or more often.
Juju.com is another free online job search engine that researches several databases for job opportunities. Juju follows the same template as most sites similar to it. What’s great about Juju is the method in which they provide job seekers with an alternate view of prospective companies by listing company names so that those who perhaps would like to target specific companies but do not where to start have a place to begin.
Job seekers can set up email alerts through Juju.com as well as set more than one type of job search profile. Like other sites, this one also saves your search history and/or select job review history for later viewing should you choose to go back and review.
Simplyhired.com is a free site that provides job seekers with access to its site to search by keyword search/phrases, job roles and/or titles and company name. Users of this site might find it to be very similar to that of the Indeed.com site. Users have the ability to upload their resume so that they are accessible to potential employers, create job alerts and establish profiles.
Like other search engines, Simplyhired also offers information about job trends, hiring company profiles, salary information and job search advice.
Looking for a website that easily allows you to seek out ‘work from home’ employment? Look no further than flexjobs.com. Flexjobs.com offers much of the same opportunity as Indeed.com and Simplyhired.com. Users can post their resume, search for jobs by profession, location and/or company name. This site does come with a cost. Flexjobs.com does require a subscription in order to access work at home opportunities that are not necessarily visible or accessible on other websites.
Of course, it goes without saying that perhaps one of the reigning giants in the world of online job search engines is CareerBuilder.com. This free site allows job seekers to set up different profiles, multiple job alerts and/or resumes to support their job search efforts. CareerBuilder also allows job seekers to set up mobile alerts so that they receive postings in real-time.
In addition to being a great search engine, this site offers prospective job seekers resources and tools to help prepare them for their job searches as well as prepare them for interviews.
These are just five picks of the numerous job search engines out there. There are other great sites like LinkedIn and Monster.com. Job seekers should be wary of online job scams or job postings that ask for personal information like bank accounts, social security number or bits of personal information. Finally, anything that requires you to pay money is not likely to be legit either.
