Job Search Site Reviews

1

LinkedIn

LinkedIn is at the top of our list as the best job search site to find general jobs. This isn’t to say LinkedIn is not good for specific industries or professions; it just so happens to be great for almost any career level, industry, or profession. If you aren’t sure where to start but you are looking for the best job board around, LinkedIn is the way to go.

PROS

LinkedIn does not allow employers to post jobs for free. This keeps the quality much higher than other job boards that do allow free postings because only serious employers will post jobs that cost money. Additionally, applying on LinkedIn makes for an easy transition into networking. Once you find a job you like, check LinkedIn to see if you have any 1st-degree connections at the company.

CONS

The biggest con is LinkedIn’s salary filters. While they do have pretty advanced search options as a whole, their salary filters only go up to $120,000. If you are an executive looking for a higher salary, you won’t have many options to filter past the 120K mark.

Check out some of our 5-star reviews:

Thank you

My experience with the entire Find My Profession team has been outstanding. They helped me frame my resume with my experience based on the opportunities I was seeking. I partnered with [Resume Writer] and [Reverse Recruiter], who were both amazing, professional and really know what they are doing. I have already recommended their serves to a few colleagues since they know how to maneuver through the ever-changing hiring process!

Outstanding service

I had the opportunity to work with [Reverse Recruiter], and I must say the experience was excellent. The communication was great, the level of professionalism and effectiveness was very high, from identifying the right jobs to networking with the right people in LinkedIn! I highly recommend this service to anyone in a senior position who is serious about finding a new job. Take it from me, you can not do it better yourself.

Excellent Results

I hadn’t updated my resume in a few years. Very glad I decided to use Find My Profession for some help. I got in touch with my writer, [Resume Writer], very quickly after signing up. He knew what recruiters are looking for and collected relevant information on my background. He was able to tell my success stories and highlight experience much better than I was on my own. I was so pleased, I added the linked in profile as well.

Worth the investment

I used the Find My Profession service to rewrite my resume and to revamp my Linkedin page. I also used the Find My Profession career finder service and worked with [Reverse Recruiter] to help me apply for roles and market my profile to potential employers. [Reverse Recruiter] worked very diligently to ensure that my profile was marketed to top-level executives in my industry and his efforts eventually led to my finding the perfect role which I received a great offer and that I accepted. This is a great service and I believe it is worth the investment for those who are looking to find their next role.

Very pleased with services

[Resume Writer] was the Executive Resume Writer who updated my resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile. She was very professional, patient, thorough, and was very accepting of my feedback/thoughts. I’m very pleased with the level of service and the end products I was provided.

Great service for busy…

I am so pleased with my experience with [Reverse Recruiter] at FMP. I was looking to change industries, but too busy and overwhelmed with my day-to-day to embark on the journey on my own. No only did he do the heavy lifting with applications, but was a readily available resource in coaching to ensure I nailed interviews and marketed myself in the best way possible. He was helped to give me realistic expectations without short-changing myself or my skills to get the job I wanted. Thanks to him, I was able to secure a great role at my dream company within 6 weeks!

Wonderful investment

[Resume Writer] was a pleasure to work with. This was a great experience and investment in myself and career. I always feel overwhelmed by creating or updating my resume and I had no idea how to create one that was suitable for today’s automated analysis used by HR departments. I struggle to find the best words to describe what I do and what I like/dislike. In one phone call [Resume Writer] was able to listen to me blather on and craft my experiences into an outstanding package. 100% recommend making this investment in yourself.

Excellent Service!

I started using the Career Finder service on July 16th, and a month later on August 16th, I was offered a job! I really appreciated [Reverse Recruiter’s] guidance and expertise through this process. It had been 18 years since I’d had to job search, and had no idea where to start. While the price was high, I thought if this service shortened my job search by a few months, then it would be worth it. [Reverse Recruiter] was very skilled in networking, helping me find positions that were of interest, but weren’t necessarily ones I would have looked for myself, applying, (and outside his job description), dealing with my emotions as I got rejections, and became frustrated trying to figure out what I was searching for. The position I landed was something that I probably wouldn’t have thought to look at myself. I appreciate how fast I was able to find something that I feel like will be a great fit, and I would highly recommend [Reverse Recruiter] and this service.
2

Indeed

Indeed is probably the most well-known job board in the US. With over 250 million monthly visitors, 120 million resumes, 500 million salaries, and 9.8 jobs added each second, Indeed is a powerhouse job site.

PROS

More jobs listed than any other site in the world. Indeed is a leader in this space and they are constantly improving their online job site to ensure the best user experience for both the job seeker and recruiter.

CONS

Since Indeed has more jobs than any other site, it can be difficult to filter out the junk to find what you are looking for. Jobs posted on Indeed also have more applicants than other sites because of the pure volume of applicants. Indeed does allow free postings, so you may find old or non-serious job postings.

Cleverism

Cleverism is a leading job search site and career advice platform founded by Ana and Martin. Cleverism is a one-stop-shop for all your career needs. They provide resume templates, cover letter templates, tons of free career advice, and of course hundreds of thousands of online jobs.

PROS

Cleverism makes it nice and easy to have everything you need for a job search all in one place. They offer advice on salary negotiation, as well as paid courses on networking, landing job interviews, and getting offers. You can also search for jobs by the company name, industry, seniority, salary, and company size.

CONS

Not all of the services on Cleverism are free to access. Some of their online training modules are pay-to-play. Also, it does not look like they have an “easy apply” feature on their website.

4

Dice

Dice is one of the few job boards branded entirely for tech jobs. Because of their niche focus and mission to serve high tech professionals, Dice has made our list as the best tech job site and information technology job board.

PROS

You will save countless hours browsing jobs on general job boards because Dice focuses exclusively on tech jobs. This is a free-to-use platform with no strings attached or search limitations.

CONS

Since Dice focuses solely on tech jobs, this site is not going to be the best fit for non-tech professionals.

5

Hired

Hired offers a unique approach to the traditional job search site. With a focus on technology professionals, Hired has eliminated the need for resumes and cover letters, offering a streamlined way for you to connect with the right companies faster.

PROS

You will create a profile (similar to LinkedIn) and allow companies to apply to you. This can definitely be a nice change in pace compared to filling out job applications all day. Best of all, it is completely free!

CONS

We really couldn’t find any cons with this company. They seem to have great reviews online and their service costs nothing. Like Dice, they do focus on technology jobs, so this may not be the best fit for other types of jobs.

6

SalesHeads

SalesHeads is one of only a handful of job boards focused around sales professionals’ careers. SalesHeads is one of the best sites for sales jobs because they remove all of the completely irrelevant jobs (banking, engineering, etc.) and only give you jobs related to sales.

PROS

SalesHeads has carved out a niche focusing on sales jobs. Having this niche makes searching for jobs easier.

CONS

Unfortunately, while this job search site focused on sales, their internal filters to search for jobs could not be less helpful. There is no industry, salary, or seniority-level filter to help narrow your searches and find the perfect fit.

Resume Writing Services

Is Your Resume Working Properly?

7

Robert Half

Robert Half is one of the largest and most credible staffing agencies worldwide. But did you know they have a job board? One of Robert Half’s largest divisions is their finance and accounting arm comprised of “Accountemps – temporary finance and accounting jobs” as well as “Robert Half Finance & Accounting – full-time finance and accounting jobs.”

PROS

With such brand credibility and an easy-to-navigate job site for finance professionals, you really can’t go wrong giving Robert Half your information. They are by far the most well-networked team of finance and accounting professionals around.

CONS

The search filters were below average in our opinion. There are no salary filters to choose from and this is one of the most important filters to use.

8

Ladders

Ladders is a leading executive job posting site in the United States. With over 20,000 active recruiters searching for top talent on Ladders and over 225,000 active jobs, you really can’t go wrong.

PROS

Ladders focuses exclusively on $100K+ jobs so you won’t be wasting any time applying to jobs that ultimately will not pay what you are looking for.

CONS

Unfortunately, Ladders is a pay to play job search website. In order to access their executive jobs, you will be asked to pay a monthly fee. They also do not have the best online reviews.

9

USAJOBS

USAJOBS is the leading federal government job search site in the world. If you are applying to federal jobs, there really is no other way to get referred and land interviews without using USAJOBS. Unlike any other job board on this list, USAJOBS is an official website of the United States government.

PROS

USAJOBS has the largest number of federal government jobs in the world. You can post your resume and make it searchable by hiring managers and recruiters. They provide various hiring paths to choose which include jobs for those with disabilities, recent grads, military spouses, veterans, and more.

CONS

USAJOBS itself does not really have any cons. There are cons however with applying to federal jobs. Federal job applications are usually much lengthier and the resume and narrative requirements are very time consuming compared to non-federal jobs.

10

Jooble

Jooble is by far one of the largest international search engines in the world. Their goal as a company is “to help any person find a job, regardless of his or her place of residence, language, religion, skin color or beliefs.” Operating in over 100 countries across Europe, Asia, Middle East, North and South America, Oceania, and Africa, it’s easy to see that Jooble has a massive international reach.

PROS

If you are flexible on location, Jooble will have more jobs than just about any other site spanning the globe.

CONS

While Jooble is very well known around the world, their presence in the U.S. is just beginning to expand so they may not have as many jobs as an already established U.S. company.
