Starting your job search this season?

Bookmark these websites now to keep tabs on all the latest jobs in your industry, which can help you get a sense of the market and who’s hiring.

Of course you’ll also want to refresh your resume, make sure you’re rockin’ your online brand, and start having those key 1-on-1 networking meetings with folks in your industry.

But while you’re getting your career rear in gear, there’s no better way to get a sense of what employers are looking for than to keep tabs on the latest job postings.

 

Check these sites out and let me know which ones you’d add to this list!

 

  1. Indeed.com

    Indeed keeps their user interface simple and does the research for you. It scours tons of newspapers, job sites, company and career pages to bring you a wide array of opportunities. You narrow things down by starting with the basics: what you’re looking for and where.

  2. Idealist.org

    Idealist is the go-to job site for those in the social impact and/or nonprofit sector. Their site connects “idealists” with volunteer, work, and internship opportunities all over the world.

  3. Levo.com

    We love the Levo League, an online platform for millennial women that can help you crush it in the career department in a variety of ways. Don’t miss their job board, where you can sort by full or part time, and salary level, among other job perks.

  4. TheMuse.com

    Explore companies in-depth and learn more about their culture and values, and find the job opportunity that’s right for you at The Muse.

  5. CareerContessa.com

    Read in-depth interviews of women leaders and find oodles of job opportunities on Career Contessa’s jobs page.

  6. CareerBuilder.com

    Browse jobs by state, industry, keywords, and job titles on the largest online job site in the U.S.

  7. Odesk

    Looking for some part-time freelance work? Bring in a little more to pad your bottom line by searching the contract gigs available here.

  8. Glassdoor

    Search over 10 million jobs and get an inside look at companies at Glassdoor. You can even read reviews from real employees to get the inside scoop before you apply.

  9. Monster

    Search for jobs, read career advice, and find hiring and recruiting resources at Monster.

  10. SimplyHired

    With a suspiciously similar design to Indeed, Simply Hired makes it easy to search a plethora of outlets using the keywords most relevant to your dream jobs.

  11. Linkedin

    While LinkedIn might not have job postings, per se, it’s the social network for your job search, where folks (like me!) are constantly writing about career advice and job opportunities, and sharing their companies’ own job postings in their newsfeeds. It’s a great way to search for folks at your target companies, too, and ask them out for a coffee meeting.

  12. Jobsminer.com

    JobsMiner helps scour social media networks in an aggregate way, making it easier to find job posts that are shared through company Facebook pages, for instance, by searching with your keywords and geographic regions.

  13. Payscale

    Get a free salary report that helps you figure out your worth in the marketplace to ensure that the job responsibilities you’re looking for and compensation align.

  14. BLS.gov

    The Federal Government’s Bureau of Labor Statistics collects, analyzes, and distributes current and forecasted employment information by occupation, geographic area, and more. Don’t miss its free publication, the Occupational Outlook Handbook, which provides job search tips, information on the job market by state, and more details to help inform your job search.

  15. Craigslist

    Goran if you will, Craigslist is actually used for more than just finding a rando roomie and sending out curb alerts when you’re unloading that old microwave. In fact, freelancers report having lots of luck nailing down one-off contracts via Craigslist all the time. Just proceed cautiously and remember to never give out banking or financial information over the Internet to a stranger.

  16. Dice

    A specialty job board for IT and more technical jobs, Dice also hosts news and career advice that applies to many more kinds of job-seekers.

  17. FlexJobs

    This site helps round up all levels of legitimate, part-time opportunities. This is a godsend for those looking for telecommuting, part-time, freelance, or flextime jobs.

  18. HigherEd Jobs

    This site lives up to it’s name with tons of job postings for positions at colleges and universities across the country.
