Savvy clients aren’t content with just having a great resume. In today’s crazy, oversaturated job market, they wisely want to know the best places to post their resume to get noticed!
From Indeed to Monster to LinkedIn Jobs, there are many popular job boards for posting your resume online, and the number of options can be overwhelming.
Thankfully, Consumers Advocate just came out with a handy resource for finding out which job board will work best for you. After over 200 hours of research, their team put together a list of the 10 best job search engines of 2020.
You can find the list here, and read on for our highlights.
Indeed – Best Overall
Indeed is easy to use, easy to apply through, and has a massive volume of jobs to apply for (ten jobs are posted every second!) With a robust search feature, company profiles, and plenty of other useful features, Indeed is an all-around good place to begin your job search.
LinkedIn Jobs – Best for Networking
As a professional social network, LinkedIn offers opportunities to personally connect with recruiters like no other. Instead of being a place to post a general resume, a good LinkedIn profile actually doubles as an expanded resume. This allows you to show off your qualifications before even applying, as recruiters will find your profile by searching for keywords.
Plenty of opportunities are posted in their Jobs section, and you can even filter your search results to find opportunities within your network. Applying through someone you know is a HUGE advantage over applying blindly.
The Muse – Best for Company Profiles
The Muse is the best of these job search engines to find information on the company you’re applying to. With robust company profiles, you can search for your ideal company and find out all you need to know about their size, philosophy, and culture. This will tell you not only how you’ll like the job, but also how the tone of your application will be perceived.
Glassdoor – Best for Company and Salary Information
Finally, you’ll want to optimize your job search by finding out if the company will work for you. Glassdoor complements The Muse’s company profiles by hosting anonymous information about companies from people who have actually worked there.
Though you should be wary of false reviews and biased opinions, Glassdoor provides key information on salary, benefits, management, and even common interview questions. This can help you determine whether applying for a job is worth it, saving you precious time in your job hunt.
