Best Ways to Search for Jobs Online

Getting Social: Facebook, Twitter and Google+

Networking is key to finding that new job. And with social media, a lot of us have much wider groups of people to look to for information on what employment might be available.

Career Contacts on LinkedIn

LinkedIn is all about careers, and it’s a great place to maintain contacts with people in your line of work. Remember, it’s better to maintain those contacts all the time than to just try to make them happen when you’re looking for a job.

Job Search Sites

If you are looking for jobs in a specific geographic area, check out Indeed.com, SimplyHired.com, or the classic site, Monster.com. For a glimpse of what life is like in specific companies, try GlassDoor.com.

Specialized Job Sites

Many sites address certain fields exclusively. If you’re looking for a tech-related job, check out Dice.com and GeekLi.st. You can find government jobs at USAJobs.com. Jobs with non-profit organizations are at Idealist.com. And if you’re looking to build experience you might try Internships.com.

    Does Cali know that Ryan Reynolds got married the beginning of September to Blake Lively? If she didn’t, please break it to her gently. :)

    Thanks for the mention in your article. We’re helping companies find developers and helping developers connect with each other and companies every day. It’s like a 24/7/365 online hackathon/meetup/resource. Really appreciate being included with some great companies. Cheers! Reuben Katz – CEO/Co-founder – Geekli.st
