Online Job Boards

It's an Internet world and the Web is where many people go for everything, including a job search. If you place an ad in the classified section of your local newspaper, inquire if a listing on the paper's Web site is included in the price. If not, it's worth the extra expense to make it happen. Here are some online job boards to consider:

  • Monster.com

  • CareerBuilder.com

  • HotJobs.com

  • Jobing.com

  • craigslist.org

Prices vary substantially amongst these Web sites. Some things to check out before making a decision are if they offer the flexibility to make changes to your ad before it expires; how much traffic the Web site receives (otherwise known as how many “hits” it gets); and if the board is the best match for the position that you have available. Some job boards have a higher concentration of entry-level, technical, supervisory, or managerial positions.

Applicants who check online job boards for employment opportunities can perform a search by position, status (part time or full time), location, or duration (temporary or permanent). On some boards, they can even search by company name.
