Changing jobs and exploring new opportunities can be one of the most exciting times in your career, but it can also be the most stressful. Especially if you're currently unemployed, rather than just looking to change jobs.
Fortunately, the Internet makes thousands of opportunities available to you from the comfort of your couch! There are hundreds of sites dedicated to matching candidates with the best job, even industry specific sites.
So before you start feeling defeated or stressed, remember: yes, you will find a job. It may not be instant and you may get rejected a couple times before getting an offer but it'll all be worth it when you find a position and company you love.
Whether you’ve just started updating your resume or you’re already browsing jobs, this list of career change websites will give you a running start in your job hunt.
With more than 250 million visitors per month, Indeed.com is the top job site in the world.
Indeed is a completely free service where you can post your resume, search and apply for jobs, and research salaries. There are even company reviews with ratings!
Monster.com is the other big name (alongside Indeed) in the job change industry. It's free for employers to post job openings and free for you to apply. Their website is so easy to use with a simple job search feature, plus there's an interactive section that helps you prepare for a new job, based on where you are in your job search.
Don't forget to check out their career advice blog for insight on resume writing, interviewing and more!
Employers hiring don't post jobs directly to Google, but if you're looking for a quick overview of jobs in your field, simply google the position your looking for in your area and Google will aggregate all listings it finds. Is there anything Google doesn't do?
Dice.com is a job site specifically for careers in tech. Employers pay a fee to post job openings, but it's free for you to apply! The site has tons of resources like a salary predictor, skills center and career development resources.
Similar to Dice, Judge.com, is a job search site for tech positions primarily. The job search database is totally free and you can apply for jobs or post your resume for employers and recruiters searching for candidates.
Plus, Judge has a really cool section that shows skills currently in demand, too!
While Linkedin charges employers to post job openings, it's still one of the most logical locations to find a job. It's free for you to search and apply, plus the "Easy Apply" feature makes applying for jobs a breeze!
Be sure to add the #OpenToWork feature to your Linkedin profile so your network knows you're ready to change jobs!
ZipRecruiter.com is a free job search service that will actually send open job notifications to your email or phone. Zip Recruiter requires your email before you can apply for jobs. Plus, they have an easy to use app that lets you stay on top of your job hunt on-the-go!
FlexJobs.com is considered the #1 site for finding remote work, but it's not free. You must pay a subscription fee to apply for job postings.
Remoteok.io is a job change website dedicated to remote work and the job listings are primarily tech jobs, but marketing roles come up often, too! It's free to apply and lists jobs based on what was posted most recent.
Weworkremotely.com posts remote-only positions across tech and marketing as well. The interface is really easy to use and the site has a great community section with a helpful blog and podcast!
Remoteclub.io is a barebones site with remote job postings in engineering, marketing, customer support, design and more! The job postings lead you to the hiring company's website, so it's more of a job posting aggregate site than an apply site.
