Looking for a job can be very intimidating especially if you have never dealt with job posting websites before. However going to these websites and getting your resume on them is very important so recruiters/employers can see if you are a good fit for their company. Also these websites will allow you to search through thousands of different job openings and apply to whichever ones interest you most. Keep this in mind though, most job posting list requirements that often times far exceed your skill set. This does not mean you shouldn’t apply. Remember these requirements are for an “ideal” candidate. Companies will oftentimes take a risk on someone who doesn’t have the “ideal” skill set and mold them to their liking. However this does mean that you will most likely get paid less than what the job posting originally said. This may be worth it because the experience you gain will pay itself off in 1-2 years time.
Personally I like putting my resume on as many job posting sites as I can. I like being able to go to each site and browse through the different job postings and apply to ones that catch my eye. Keep in mind that these websites don’t always have the same job postings across the board. So if you really want employers to notice you, you should post your resume on at least 3-4 sites. Also as side note, you WILL be contacted by a lot of recruiters and I think it is in your best interest to give them some of your time and chat with them. Recruiters have a very big network and they can often get your foot in the door of a job you have been wanting.
So here are the resources I use when I am on the hunt for my next job.
- Craigslist.com (I usually would only browse around)
