One of the most common ways for job seekers to uncover employment opportunities is through job search sites. There are hundreds of online job boards out there, as well as apps, aggregators, social media channels, networking groups and recruiting company websites to choose from.
The good news is they provide plenty of listings. The bad news? You can easily be overwhelmed by the wide variety of options.
So, where is the best place to find your next great role? Your first step may be to look for the best job search sites, and when you do, you’re likely to find Robert Half ranked first on Forbes' annual list of America's Best Professional Recruiting Firms. The company was also recently recognized for being one of Forbes’ Best Employers for Diversity, America's Best Large Companies, World’s Best Employers in the Business Services and Supplies category, and Best Employers for Women.

A sampling of job search sites
First off, most businesses have a Jobs or Careers section on their site. Identify the top companies in your field — or any that you’re interested in working for — and see what opportunities they have available. Some companies may not post all their open positions on job boards, so visiting their website could be the only way to find out about openings at these firms. Check back regularly, though some may even have the option to set up job alerts for the types of roles that appeal to you most.
Here's a list of more job search sites. Keep in mind that they may focus on a specific industry or occupation.
- Google for Jobs
- College Recruiter
- We Work Remotely
How to best use these resources
To improve your chances when you’re looking for a new job, make sure your resume is polished and professional. Your resume and your profiles on career websites are marketing collateral for a very important enterprise: your career.
You’d be smart to register and set up alerts with more than one site, since each offers a slightly different experience and list of benefits. A talent solutions firm like Robert Half may be valuable as your first stop, as we have not only matching software and AI but also real people — our highly experienced recruiters — working on your behalf while you get set up on other sites.
And don’t neglect other methods for finding jobs, such as in-person networking events, reaching out to former coworkers, job fairs and more. Good luck.
Employers, our website also allows you to browse our candidates and submit a hiring request for immediate follow-up. Are you hiring remote workers? Trying to find the right job seeker for your open role?
