Finding a job is hard, especially when the unemployment rate is at 8.5%. Since 2008, job fair attendance rates have risen leading to long lines and over worked human resources representatives that have interviewed 20 people with the same goal as you–a job.
What is the best method to find a job? Many have searched the internet for the top paying job or the highest paying job, but only a few agencies provide the best results or most opportunities. Although carrerbuilder and monster job search allows you to post up your resumer and browse for jobs, the wait for a response (that isn’t spam) is long.
Top 5 places to find a job:
- Employment Pipeline: not only provides an online service, but recently developed a widget that finds the job that best suits you.
- Snag a job: helps you find a job by a location, position, and company. Snag a job also provides job hunting, interviewing, and resume tips.
- Job Serve: Provides jobs beyond the borders of the United States and into the United Kingdom, Australia, and other places.
- Jobing: Is a like other job searching sites except it allows you to go beyond looking at a specific field and into communications with specific employers.
- Simply Hired: Is a combination of all of the previous jobs sites in one. You can apply all over the world and choose which field you would want to work in. Basically, you will be “Simply hired.”
No matter which job you are looking for their are several websites that can easily help you find a job, but remember applying is just the first step. You have to be proactive. Apply to jobs that you know your qualified for and let the employer know that working there is your dream (even if it really isn’t.)
