The 8 Most Recommended Job Boards

The 8 Most Recommended Job Boards


Hey cultivator. Welcome back to
my channel. In today’s video, I want to share with you eight job
boards that I personally recommend. Not all job boards are created equal. I’m going to share with you and break
down why you would use one over the other depending on what you’re aiming
for or what your objective is. As a head Hunter and a recruiter, I used to use these job boards to
find quality candidates just like you. This isn’t by any means
a comprehensive list. I just chose the eight that I personally
trust and know that other companies are utilizing to find candidates based on
the specific industry or the specific function that they’re going for. So
without further ado, let’s dive in. all right, so let’s talk about job
board recommendation number one, which is indeed.com indeed is a really
great marketplace for employers and hiring managers to post their jobs
because it’s free for employers to post, which is really amazing if you think
about it because a lot of the other job boards out there charge about $350 per
posting or they charge like a really expensive annual fee of
like $12,000 for a license. What I love about indeed from a candidate
perspective is the advanced search feature as well as the
weekly alerts feature. So what this means is
on the advanced search, you can literally tell in depth what
you’re looking for and what you’re not looking for and really save these search
parameters and get notified weekly of any matches that come through. If any of you are watching from my
happily hired formula job search program, you know, I’m not a big
fan of applying online. I still wouldn’t apply per se on the
jobs that are coming through on indeed. However, it’s a really great tool to get notified
of companies that are in your area or vicinity that are growing. And then using that as research to
determine whether or not you want to introduce yourself to
that company. Alright, let’s talk about job board
number two, which is LinkedIn. LinkedIn’s job page is actually
quite interesting because they have a sophisticated algorithm in place where
they’re really analyzing your profile for the different key words and experiences
that you’ve held to determine or recommend what jobs you
might be interested in. So if you haven’t yet
optimized your LinkedIn, be sure to click on this video in this
corner here because I want to make sure that the jobs that are actually being
recommended to you are of interest to you. If they aren’t, then you can really optimize an update
your profile to start being introduced to the types of roles that are
actually a good fit for you. I would say generally speaking, that LinkedIn also has really high
quality jobs because it’s not cheap for companies to post on there or to
have a license as a recruiter. So the jobs that you do
see are pretty strong. And then also what’s really cool is
sometimes they give you further insights about, for instance, who posted the job. So LinkedIn is really a social media
platform that tries to connect people, um, and give them channels to be able
to connect and introduce themselves. All right, job number three. Again, I always have to preface that it might
sound sketchy but it’s not is Craigslist and if you guys watch this video, how to find a job ASAP you’ll notice
that a lot of the jobs on Craigslist are either small to medium size businesses
who have less layers of recruiting, which is great for those
that want to find a job ASAP. But also a lot of the contract and temp
positions are posted there as well. For Craigslist, you just want to make sure that you go
to the city that you want to work in, look at all of the different functions
and click the one that’s the right fit for you and just scroll through some
of the search results that come up. I think you’ll be surprised at some of
the big companies that are also posting there as well. For job board number four, I want to present angel.co they are a
really great resource if you’re looking for a VC backed company
or early stage startup. If you want to really join a tech
company, um, at its earliest stages. This is really the place to be. What I really like about angel.co
as well is that they are into salary transparency. Meaning if you
look at the jobs that are posted, you’ll notice that they have salary
ranges in place, which is great as well. If you’re looking to just cross reference
salary data points from one company to another, take a look at them and see what
they have listed for different titles. Alright, for job board number five,
I want to present FairyGodBoss. FairyGodBoss is a really great community for women and
they do a really great job of finding companies that are friendly towards
women, meaning that their values, their workplace environment, their benefits are really aligned
to towards the working woman. I have actually submitted quite a bit
of career advice to their blog and they have a really great blog full of resources
for anything that’s woman-related and workplace related. So take a look at
that and let’s move on to number six. Okay. So what’s really interesting is
I attract a lot of really hard centered professionals, which I love. Like a lot of the people that I work
with are wanting to make a greater impact on the roads and their communities and
just want to contribute and give back in any way that they can. And so one of the things that I’ve
realized is a lot of them are looking for cause-based companies or organizations. And one of the best job boards that
have really compiled companies and opportunities that are just aligned for
giving back is idealist.org idealist.org has a really great database of companies
and organizations that are hiring people who want to leave the
world a better place than
they found it. All right. Job board number is dice.com and if
you’re in a highly technical role, um, or in the it roles, anything
dealing with technology, you’ve probably heard
of dice. Uh, you know, technical recruiters are on dice quite
frequently whether they’re posting jobs or looking through their
database of candidates. If you are looking for
some type of tech role, this is really the job board for you and
I would absolutely post your resume in there and refresh it like every seven
days or 14 days to make sure that you’re being seen by recruiters who are
looking for a candidate just like you. Because I know that the tech world is
very fast moving and I know that there’s always a shortage of tech talent, so
that’s the place to be if you’re in tech. All right. The eighth and final recommendation I
have for you as far as job boards goes, is the professional organizations or
associations that you’re a part of. If you go to any professional
organization, let’s say for example, you’re in marketing. Your professional organization or
association is the American marketing association. If you take
a look at their website, you can see from their jobs tab or
careers time that they have very specific marketing related roles
that are posted there. So take a look at whatever industry
you are a part of and just start to research. Is there a professional organization
that governs this because whatever that mean association is on the national level, most likely they have job postings and
you can also look at the local chapters page as well to see if your local chapter
is promoting specific jobs that fit your specific industry or niche. It’s a really great place
to get very targeted, very specific job postings
that match your background. Um, and I would check that frequently
because there are new employers that are saying, Hey, can we put this in front of
your audience, which their audience is, people like you that fit that
particular niche or domain. I hope you found those
recommendations helpful. To be honest, there are so many job boards out
there and I probably left off a lot. I know at the top of my
mind, the muse media bistro, and there are so many of them that could
be a really great resource and tool to find the latest jobs for you. But hopefully that gave
you a good sampling of the
types of jobs that you could be looking for based on the different
types of categories or industries or roles or niches that you’re really
aligning yourself for. Find yours and really make sure to
use that as research to see what new opportunities are springing up for you. Let me know in the comments down below
what your favorite job board is and what your ideal job is so that we can
hopefully get this list going. If you enjoy this video, please

continue to cultivate your career.
