Job Hunting Sites

What are the better job hunting sites to put your resume on? Long story short, company transfers my fiance down to AZ and then they merge with someone else and tell her she is redundant. So, need to find her a job and quick...

Re: Job Hunting Sites

I'm finally leaving one of the "Big tech companies" thought it would be a career job.....fucking worst job ever - will never work for one of them again.

As a person who wanted to leave a prison job fast, I only used indeed, monster (still one of the best whether you like or not), & dice (tech site).

I can tell you that I've tried a ton of sites listed in inri's post - stay away from simply hired - way too many expired jobs and will be a waste of your time.

So, don't think you need to apply to a million job sites just to get a job, most of them post the same jobs and there are so many sites because they want ad revenue. I just landed a great job (literally yesterday I got the news) - believe they called me from my resume on indeed.

Re: Job Hunting Sites

I haven't had any lucky getting a new job, but have found indeed to be the best for searching.

Re: Job Hunting Sites

indeed is the best but when I was hunting all last year, probably half that I applied for I found on Craigslist.

This is true, craigslist is also good for jobs. Lots of trash, or vague info, but some very good listings mixed in.

x3. I know a few people who have gotten decent (above board) jobs from listings on Craigslist.

Some are better than others.
I have some people in my life whom are unemployed and I'll pass your list along, thank you.

Re: Job Hunting Sites

It's key to point out that Indeed basically searches Monster, Dice and quite a few of the other sites, so it's a good one-stop site to bookmark.

Re: Job Hunting Sites

When I was job hunting earlier this year I used the typical sites like Indeed, Dice, and Monster. Something useful is also just making sure you have a LinkedIn profile. I got tons of tech recruiters hitting me up from that unsolicited.

Re: Job Hunting Sites

The field that I work in (Sports TV broadcasting) Job Hunt sites are pretty much worthless. It's like throwing a piece of hay into a hay stack.

I got my job at the NFL through my former boss who worked there and I got my other job working for the Pac-12 through a colleague who put in a recommendation for me.

Networking and having good relationships with your bosses (new and old) and colleagues is so important. That's what will keep you employed.

My field especially is such a small world. I've run into people in my jobs that know friends/colleagues of mine. Most in sports TV, especially in LA, knows each other or has worked together in some form.

Yup. My wife has been solicited for numerous jobs through LinkedIn.
