10 Best Job Search Websites

By Robert Half November 29, 2018 at 5:45pm

One of the most common ways today's job seekers uncover employment opportunities is by using online sources. There are hundreds of job boards, both generic and niche, as well as aggregators, social media channels, networking groups and staffing company websites to choose from.

The good news is they provide plenty of listings. The bad news is you can be easily overwhelmed by so many options. Here, Robert Half offers 10 of what are generally considered the best job search websites around.

There are many others, of course, but this list of best job search websites should give you a good starting point for your next job hunt:

1. Robert Half

On our website, you can search thousands of job listings from the companies we work with around the world. Many of the opportunities we offer are exclusive to Robert Half and can't be found elsewhere, online or off. Job seekers can submit a resume, apply for temporary or full-time positions and subscribe to job alerts to stay updated on brand-new opportunities. We also offer job search and career advice on our award-winning blog, a robust library of research into workplace trends and our annual Salary Guides to see what you can earn. (Employers, our website also allows you to browse our candidates and submit a hiring request for immediate follow-up.)

We've been helping job seekers find great career opportunities since 1948. Let us find the right job for you.

2. CareerBuilder

No list of best job search websites would be complete without this entry. CareerBuilder, which has been around for more than 20 years, is one of the biggest job boards, and its robust search function allows you to filter by several criteria, including location, degree required and pay range. Job seekers can upload their resumes in any format. CareerBuilder partners with news media around the country and collects job listings from them. It also provides career advice and resources for job candidates.

3. Indeed

A huge aggregator of postings from across the Web, this site consolidates listings from many job boards and staffing agencies in one place. It also compiles information from various company career pages and allows you to search locally or globally. Indeed says 9.8 jobs are added to their site every second globally.

4. Job.com

This large site offers weekly job alerts, job search advice, a resume builder and, of course, job postings. This job search website also allows you to upload your resume for hiring managers and recruiters to search. The site uses artificial intelligence to connect job seekers and companies. Resumes are not posted on the site, which may appeal to people who are job searching while currently employed.

5. Ladders

This site focuses on job openings for upper-level executives and professionals who are aiming for the management suite. Candidates seeking jobs paying an annual salary of $100,000 or more can gain access to screened openings after they’ve paid a subscription fee.

Additionally, you can join groups, participate in conversations and follow companies you find interesting and relevant to your job search. Premium paid features offer more advanced search functions and services.

7. Glassdoor

Job search website ​Glassdoor started as a company ratings site with anonymous reviews authored by current or former employees. Glassdoor promotes itself as giving job seekers insights into a company's work environment, interview processes, salaries and benefits. In addition to now providing millions of job listings, Glassdoor allows employers to identify job candidates and market their companies to job seekers.

8. Monster

This massive job site is aptly named because it includes one of the largest number of job listings of any website. The company offers services in more than 40 countries. It allows you to upload your resume and offers networking boards, as well as a search alert service so you can get targeted posts delivered via email.

9. SimplyHired

This search engine offers an email alerts service and lets you save your job searches. Candidates can sort their searches to focus on companies that hire veterans, have a high rate of diversity and abide by eco-friendly practices, among other criteria.

10. Us.jobs

This search site is geared to people who are searching for U.S. jobs from outside the country.

After exploring the above list of the best job search websites, you might consider registering with more than one site since each offers a slightly different experience and list of benefits. Good luck!
