If you've been looking for a job, chances are it goes something like this. You open up your browser and go to Monster. After checking out the three new jobs since yesterday's search, you switch over to Careerbuilder, and then Yahoo! HotJobs. And if you're really looking for a job, this is what you do every day!
Well, meet Indeed.com
, the Google of job search. Why do we use Google? We google to search for absolutely anything, and if we can't find it there, it probably doesn't exist. Same goes for Indeed. Indeed
uses the same search (and advertising) technology to compile job postings from all across the Net.
So, you'll get listings from Monster, Careerbuilder, and HotJobs, as well as from lesser known job sites, state job banks, corporate and institutional career sites, Craiglist, and newspaper's online classifieds. If the keywords that you are using aren't bringing in the results you were hoping for, you can also browse jobs alphabetically by state, company, or industry.
The site does have a couple of drawbacks. First, you will definitely receive duplicate or irrelevant listings in your results if you are using very broad terms in your keyword searching. Lastly, since the site automatically pulls text from other sites, the job listing summaries can be difficult to understand, but if you click the link, it will take you the posting on its original site.
Happy Job Hunting!
