When searching for jobs, go directly to a reputable job search website or the official employer's website career link. You do not want to fall victim to a fraudulent website that will collect your information, or a job scam. Searching Google's search engine for "jobs", "employers hiring," or "Yadkinville jobs" is dangerous. Go to a reputable source. We have provided a good starting list of job search websites, local staffing agencies, and local employers (including Census 2020) within this section of our LibGuide.
An official employer career portal is often a smaller link, kept near the bottom of the home page (says "Employment" or "Careers" etc.). Here is an example from Walmart:
Indeed is the top job site with millions of job listings from thousands of websites, including company career sites, job boards, newspaper classifieds, associations, and other online sources of job postings.
Users can also upload a resume and get a personalized resume link to share with employers. You can also apply for jobs, research salaries and job trends, set up job alerts, and use Indeed's job search app for mobile job hunting. **You can log-in with your Google account**
Users can gain firsthand insight into employment dynamics through an extensive selection of company reviews completed by employees and job seekers.
ZipRecruiter uses innovative technology to learn about your job preferences as you apply for jobs from their extensive inventory of openings. Users then receive notices of jobs that meet their preferences.
**NOTE** ZipRecruiter provides industry-leading salary information about targeted jobs and showcases trending companies, cities, and job categories.
Glassdoor is a career community that helps people find jobs and companies that recruit top talent. Glassdoor members can see the latest job listings and get access to user-generated content, including company-specific ratings and reviews, interview questions, and more. Glassdoor is an industry leader on salary information by company and job type.
CareerBuilder is one of the largest job boards, providing job listings, resume posting, and career advice and resources to job seekers. CareerBuilder secures job listings directly from employers and has expanded local listings by partnering with many newspapers to incorporate their online classifieds.
CareerBuilder integrates useful information about scores of career paths and valuable advice about career development and job searching. The site uses the latest AI technology to connect workers with opportunities.
LinkedIn connects the world's professionals to make them more productive and successful. LinkedIn is the largest professional network.
You can search for jobs, identify contacts at employers who are advertising vacancies, and follow companies of interest on LinkedIn. Users can incorporate portfolio samples within their profile to showcase their credentials to prospective employers.
LinkedIn is popular with employers who review the profiles of talented workers who are not necessarily actively seeking new opportunities, as well as candidates seeking employment.
**TIP** LinkedIn works well for strong candidates conducting a passive job search where they want employers to find them.
