- Indeed. With its simple interface and well-developed search algorithms, Indeed looks a lot like Google, except that it searches exclusively for jobs. It does a fantastic job of aggregating job opportunities from sources: other job listing sites, newspapers, corporate websites, job boards, and so on. For the sheer comprehensiveness of its results, Indeed is virtually matchless.
- Craigslist. As with anything on Craigslist, job searches are a crapshoot—there are hidden diamonds among all too apparent rough. Find the diamonds, though, and you could land a very good position. Another advantage is that Craigslist postings are often for small businesses, many of which allow you to connect directly with the hiring manager.
- SimplyHired. SimplyHired’s results are nearly, but not quite, as comprehensive as Indeed’s; its utility is in its advanced search, which allows you to apply a variety of filters to separate the wheat (jobs you’re interested in and qualified for) from the chaff (everything else).
In my experience searching for jobs (which is pretty extensive!) you can’t go wrong with the above websites, but if you have had more luck with a particular service, or if you think another website provides superior features, feel free to chime in!
