A job search can be incredibly overwhelming and understanding what each job board offers is essential. I certainly had a few favorites while recruiting, but there are strengths and weaknesses for each site. I’ll be covering the top six job boards over the next week.
Indeed has proclaimed themselves as “the world’s # job site” and I have to agree it is an excellent resource and job board. Indeed pulls from multiple job boards and integrates them into one platform. It’s considered a one stop shop since it draws from various jobs posting sites.
Pros of using Indeed for your job search:
- Indeed is user-friendly and offers a “Google-like” results window
- Allows a comprehensive job search including selections such as part-time, full-time, salary, and location
- If you are interested in particular positions, the advanced search is easy to access and allows for keyword and searches that include phrases
- There is no fee to use their service
- Save job searches and update them after you save
- You can post your resume online for hiring managers to view
Along with the pros are a few cons:
- Pulls in undesirable job postings from other sites
- It often takes a few clicks to locate a full job description
- Includes websites that charge a fee
For any online job application, you need an ATS formatted resume or it won’t matter how many jobs you have applied for. Your resume will not make it through the system and reach a human being.
