Part of a strong job search campaign is the use of job database systems to identify openings with organizations that fit your field and search criteria. Career Services has compiled a list of some of our favorite job search databases to get you started. This listing is not exhaustive and as such, we encourage you to seek out appropriate websites and resources to assist you in your search. Job search websites are important, but only play a small part in your search. Two-thirds of jobs never make it to posting boards, so networking (informational interviews, talking to friends and family, attending open houses & job fairs, etc.) are critical as well. If you have questions regarding your job search, contact our office to setup a Job Search Strategies appointment.
*Please note that while we provide this list of job search websites, Career Services is not promoting, endorsing or confirming content on these databases. It is up to the job seeker to carefully review the websites and postings. We are not responsible for the content of these websites.
