When it comes to finding the right websites that help you find your future employer or for a future employer finding you, you want to assure yourself that you are using the best possible sites to help achieve just that. Finding a job is serious business and you are just in luck because here are the best websites that make it easy for you to find employment.
Indeed is one of the most well-known if not the most well-known website for job searching. After you create an account you will want to type under the search bar of what job you are seeking for, including the desired location. After deciding, you are taken to a page that lists possible matches and their salaries (if provided). For applying, you can either do it through Indeed or will be directed to the employer’s website. Some of them will require a cover letter, others do not. It’s as simple as that and you are done.
For Glassdoor, you want to upload a professional headshot of you when creating your account. Glassdoor also has you rate your previous employers for other members to read and take into consideration if you choose to. What is nice about the website is that you can make changes to/update your resume through their website on your profile for employers to visibly see; just remember to upload your latest version too to keep everything updated. When applying, you can see company profiles, their ratings, salary range for different roles, company reviews, benefits and why you should work for them all under one tab so you can see what you are getting yourself into before applying which is always helpful.
When it comes to quick job searching and applying, ZipRecruiter is the option for you. With ZipRecruiter you can do the “One Click Apply” on jobs where all your information is sent to them and you just sit back and wait for responses. Although, not all of them are a one-step apply. Some will require more information as requested automatically by employers before application submission, or they may ask you to visit the employer’s website for applying. If you visit through their app, you are instantly taken to your feed of available jobs where you can scroll down and click on ones that best describe you. ZipRecruiter will also notify you once your application has been viewed and how many times it has been opened by that one employer—keeping you updated.
Not only is LinkedIn used as a professional networking website and social media platform, but it is a great option for finding jobs that businesses post on their profiles. What is great about LinkedIn is that every updated professional experience you have on that website is seen by future employers. You do not go through the hassle of the uploading and the updating the resume document because if you keep your profile updated and filled with professional skills and experiences, you are set to go. Employers automatically see your information once you apply because your LinkedIn profile would be attached to the application.
With WayUp, just like the rest, you want to upload your latest resume to get started and complete your profile, leaving no professional experience out. Like ZipRecruiter, WayUp has job postings that have the “One-Click” apply button or you can apply through the employer’s website. You can also see the employer’s company information regarding location, the start date, the type of job whether it is an entry level or not, and what industry they belong to. You are also able to know if the position is paid or not since some are unpaid internships merely for experience-growth.
6. Monster Jobs
Along with Indeed, Monster is also one of the largest and well-known job searching websites. Employers use this website to find new hires because it is largely used on both ends by the job seeker and the employer. On Monster, you want to create an account and once that is completed you can start finding positions you are interested in. Their website is organized and direct where it gives you the important details about the position and the company and is direct in giving the information you need when searching for positions. You also have the choice to type your desired annual salary in the search bar under the “Salary” tab if preferred that way.
7. Google Jobs
Ever dream of working for a large and successful company? To no surprise, Google is huge, and their number of employers are just as large. This ever-growing company is always searching for their next biggest and brightest employer to work for them and you could be next.
