Job Search Websites
While all of the below job search websites are great for finding open positions, I always recommend going directly to the company's website to apply. That way you'll know they've definitely received your application.
This is a great place to start your job search. You can use Indeed to look for positions using job titles, your education level, or specific duties as the search keywords. Once you hit "find jobs," you'll be able to filter your search results by salary, the type of positions (full time, part time, etc.), or by whether it's a remote position or not.
This site has become fairly popular and can be used to look for positions using job titles, your education level, or specific duties as the search keywords. Similar to Indeed, once you hit the search button, you'll be able to filter your search results by salary or by the type of positions (full time, part time, etc.).
Great site to use while searching for legitimate remote or virtual positions. You can search using keywords or you can browse positions by career field categories like Teaching, Writing, Healthcare, Accounting - the list goes on!
LinkedIn is always making changes to its platform to help users get a leg up in their careers. One of those updates is an ability to job search on the professional social media platform. Some position listing even allow you to see who posted the position for a company which means you could potentially reach out and let them know you applied!
These are my go-to organizations for clients who might need a little extra assistance.
