Job Search Websites – The Top 5 Sites For Finding Local Jobs Fast

With so many job search websites to choose from how do you use your time wisely and know which the best for finding local jobs are?  After having researched dozens and dozens of sites that all claim to cater to the local job seeker, here are the Top 5 that will help you find  local jobs fast.

These are in no particular order and it is recommended the job seeker take a look at each every couple of days as updates on new opportunities are posted regularly.  These are all free to view the job listings; at least they were at this writing.

Craigslist.com

Snagajob.com

Jobing.com

Linkup.com

Localcareers.com

Snagajob.com is primarily for part-time or hourly positions.  Their popularity has really grown over the years since they started out in 2000.  Today they are considered by many to be the #1 resource for finding part-time jobs in your local area.

Craigslist.com is an online community with classifieds and forums that has been around since 1995.  In the last few years it has become a popular place with both local job seekers and local employers.  The jobs posted there seem to be all across the board, tending less away from the executive level.   But it is a free site, good to review every day for the local job seeker.

Jobing.com has been focusing on the local job market since 2000.  They are definitely a not-to-be-missed resource for local job hunters.  The problem is not many people know about them and they are often overshadowed by the bigger job Boards.  But Jobing.com is easy to navigate and use and their local jobs listed can be viewed by the job seeker at no cost. 

Localcareers.com is a network of regional sites that is free to use and should not be missed by those searching for local employment.  There are also industry niche sites affiliated with this site that can be very helpful.

The favorite of the local job search websites is LinkUp.com (not to be confused with the very popular professional networking site LinkedIn).  This is a job search website that very few people seem to know about.  It is a search spider that looks at the career pages of companies for job openings.  These are often jobs that don’t get posted anywhere else on the Internet.  Using this site can help you find what is often referred to as the “hidden jobs”.

There are other sites worth looking at as well.  They did not make our top list either because they are too well known or they did not offer anything unique for finding local jobs.  These other valuable sites include:  Monster.com, CareerBuilder.com, Hotjobs.com, Indeed.com, SimplyHired.com and Flipdog.com.

One would think that looking at just one site might be enough, but each site is different and you can input the same zip code and find different job opportunities listed from each different site.  So, if you are going to be thorough in your job search take a look at each of these recommended job search websites every couple of days.
