12 Job Search Sites for Young Professionals

Always in search of websites that help in career development, I was glad to hear from a regular reader who raved about the value of Career One Stop, which provides career tips and salary range information by zip code for all major career categories.  So, I decided to share that link along with 11 others that I’ve checked out recently.

The following links provide job leads, salary insights and career-related advice:

The Riley Guide:  Wide range of job search and career advice

Job Star Central: Job search tips and local job listings

Salary.com: Salary calculator by profession and excellent resources for students and entry-level professionals

  1. I am currently a senior at Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau, MO and I thought this article was particularly helpful because I am graduating in May 2013 and I am looking for good job search websites. I have been looking at Indeed.com which is another job search website that allows you to enter your desired location and key words related to your job, then it emails you whenever new jobs with your specifications are found. Have you heard of and/or do you think this is a good resource? Also, would it be better to go to specific company websites as opposed to job search sites?

    1. Alicia: Yes, I’m familiar with indeed.com. I recommend it to give people ideas of the types of jobs that exist around the country, but a large number of agencies and corporations don’t advertize on such job sites. Therefore, it is important to regularly check company websites. I stress “regularly” since many agencies now only leave job postings up for 72 hours rather than a week or longer. Good luck.
