Job Search Engines

A lot of companies post job listings on their Web sites, which is great if you know exactly where you want to work. But those of us who know only what position or field we want to work in need sites to help sift through all of the online job listings. Luckily, there are plenty of job search engines that scan the Internet for job opportunities.

Insights for Job Search Engines

  • Here are some tips to help you search on many of the job search engines listed below:
    • Search in your city rather than in your zip code to gather as many results as possible.
    • Search only one or two keywords for the most results.
    • Use search filters if your search gives you too many job postings.
    • Sort jobs by date instead of by relevance to avoid outdated listings.
    • Take note of the words employers use to describe the positions you like, then search those terms.
  • You’ll get the best results when you search on a job posting site specific to your industry; look for lists of those sites in this section of the guide.
  • Don’t rely entirely on these search engines; they should only make up a part of your career search. For more help on utilizing all avenues available to land that job, especially the importance of networking, read the bestseller "What Color is your Parachute?"
