Need to find a job? These are the best job search engines on the web

If you're in the market for a new job, you'll want to check out this list of the best eight job search engines on the web. All of these job search tools offer unique features and can streamline your employment search efforts so your efforts are more productive. Each one is an incredibly useful tool that will help you localize your search, find interesting new positions that correlate to your experience and interests, and help you to find employment in a wide variety of genres. 

1- Monster.com

Monster Logo

Newly redesigned Monster.com is one of the oldest job search engines on the Web. While some of its usefulness has been diminished in recent years due to a lack of good filtering and too many posts by spammy recruiters, it's still an important site on which to conduct a job search. You can narrow your search by location, keywords, and employer; plus, Monster has plenty of job search extras: networking boards, job search alerts, and online resume posting.

Employers can also use Monster.com to find employees for a nominal fee, a useful tool for those looking to expand their hiring repertoire, find a new full-time or contract employee, or gather a pool of potential applicants for an upcoming position.  More »

Indeed logo

Indeed.com is a very solid job search engine, with the ability to compile a resume and submit it onsite for employer searches of keywords, jobs, niches, and more. Indeed uncovers a wide variety of jobs and fields that you wouldn't normally find on most job search sites, and they do a good job of making their job search features as easy to use as possible. You can subscribe to job alerts via email; you can set these up for a certain keyword, geolocation, salary, and much more. 

In addition, Indeed makes it as simple as possible to keep track of jobs you've applied for; all you need to do is create a login (free) and every job you've applied for from within Indeed.com or that you've just expressed interest in will be saved to your profile. 

Daily and weekly alerts can be created with notifications going to your inbox; criteria include job title, location, salary requirements, and skill sets.  More »

USA Jobs

Think of USAjobs as your gateway into the huge world of US government jobs. Navigate to the USAjobs.gov home page, and you'll be able to narrow your search by keyword, job title, control number, agency skills, or location. One particularly interesting feature is the ability to search worldwide within any country that currently is advertising a vacancy. 

Just like many other job search engines on this list, you can create a user account (free) on USAjobs.gov, making the application process for government jobs extremely streamlined and easy.  More »

CareerBuilder offers job searchers the ability to find a job, post a resume, create job alerts, get job advice and job resources, look up job fairs, and much more. This is a truly massive job search engine that offers a lot of good resources to the job searcher; I especially appreciate the list of job search communities. 

According to the CareerBuilder website, more than 24 million unique visitors a month visit CareerBuilder to find new jobs and obtain career advice, and offers job searches in over 60 different countries worldwide.  More »

5- Dice


Dice.com is a job search engine dedicated to only finding technology jobs. It offers a targeted niche space for finding exactly the technology position you might be looking for.

One of the most appealing features that Dice offers is the ability to drill down to extremely specialized tech positions, giving job seekers the opportunity to find the niche tech jobs that are sometimes elusive on other job search engines.  More »

7- LinkedIn

LinkedIn.com combines the best of two worlds: the ability to scour the Internet for jobs with its job search engine, and the opportunity to network with like-minded friends and individuals to deepen your job search.

LinkedIn's job postings are of the highest quality, and if you are connected to someone who already knows about that particular job, you've got a way in before you even hand in your resume.  More »

8- Craigslist

There are all sorts of interesting jobs on Craigslist. Just find your city, look under Jobs, then look under your job category. Non-profit, systems, government, writing, etc. jobs are all represented here.

You can also set up various RSS feeds that pertain to whatever job you might be looking for, in whatever location.

Caution: Craigslist this is a free marketplace and some of the jobs posted at on this site could be scams. Use caution and common sense when replying to job listings on Craigslist.  More »

A recent survey found that 53 million Americans are freelancing – which is a total of 34% of the workforce in the US. (I suspect in the digital marketing field, that number is much higher.) This means that nearly a third of the working population is hustling and looking for work – likely on a regular basis.

At the time it was terrifying. Today, I can’t imagine living any other way.

If you are a freelancer, you know there are benefits and drawbacks. Sure, you can work at home in your pajamas, but you also have to be the master of your own schedule. There is no boss – but that also means there is no one setting deadlines but yourself.

If you are considering going freelance – either part-time or full-time – it can be a struggle to figure out where to look for work. This article will hopefully help you find a few more places to look for freelance marketing jobs.

If you are considering making the jump to full-time freelance, I highly suggest you give this podcast “How to Make the Leap to Full-Time Freelancing” with Kelsey Jones and I a listen.

If you are looking for freelance marketing jobs, here are the best places to look. Some are paid, some are free, some require a little bit of sifting to find the good jobs. All come personally recommended by SEJ staff members or by people we know. None of these sites paid to be included.



This is a paid site, which I normally don’t go for. But, this site came highly recommended by Kelsey Jones, Executive Editor here at SEJ. What I like about the site is that it focuses on flexible work, including remote and part-time work. You start by creating a profile and resume, and then you can sort jobs based on location, industry, category, amount of travel, etc.


You can also take skills tests, research companies, and get tips and suggestions for your job search.

ClearVoice Marketplace

ClearVoice is a software that helps brands create better content, but they also have a marketplace where freelancers can connect with brands looking for high-quality content. Most of their leads are high-quality and pay pretty well (a few hundred dollars per article).

You can’t browse opportunities, but the site does email you when a job that matches your skills comes available. ClearVoice takes a cut of the payment, but that is pretty normal. Articles are submitted through the site, which works as a CMS and project planning software combined.

I like the level of work I have gotten through the platform, but the jobs (for me, at least) tend to be few and far between. This likely isn’t a place to find full-time work, but can help fill the gaps in your freelancing calendar and get your name out there.

LinkedIn Profinder

An off-shoot of the social network, Profinder helps match brands who need work done with freelancers who can do the work. So far, I haven’t been super impressed with the matching, but it does seem to be getting better. I get a few emails a day with leads. I have applied for a few jobs, but have never heard back.

I do like the way it pulls info from your LinkedIn page to create an easy to look at resume.

The jobs are not open very long (which I like!), but you also don’t get payment protection the way you do through other sites like UpWork. The site is just getting started, but I do recommend getting an account and keeping an eye on it. I suspect it will get better in the future.

Media Bistro

This site focuses on media jobs as a whole, which is great for freelancers who have skills in multiple areas (most of us, I am guessing!) It is more of a job board than a platform, but you can sort jobs easily using the function in the left sidebar. You can also set up a search and have them email you when jobs new jobs that meet your criteria come in.



This is one of the better job boards, although most jobs are for writers, bloggers, or content marketers. If that is your area of expertise, this is a great place to look. The board doesn’t have any frills, you have to look through each job listing, and some of the jobs aren’t super high paying, but definitely a good place for writers to find jobs. The companies who post have to pay, so there tends to be less low-end jobs.


This platform has a special place in my heart because it is where I first connected with SEJ. There have been many changes over the years, but it is still a great place to find work. It offers payment protection; you can create a profile and take skills tests, and sort through job listings.

Detractors will point out there are a lot of low paying jobs on UpWork, which is true. But the platform makes it pretty easy to sort jobs by level, industry, keywords, etc. You do have to be careful, but I think there are still plenty of good jobs to be found in all the noise if you are willing to look.


Yep, good old Craigslist can be a great place to find high paying clients. If you don’t live in a metropolitan area, I suggest looking in cities such as New York, Los Angeles, San Fransisco, and Chicago.


Many of the postings are for remote positions, but they post them in areas with the highest traffic. This article gives a great run through of how to navigate looking for a job on Craigslist without wasting a bunch of time. The site also has an easy to use filter function so you can choose “telecommuting” and the industry you are interested in.

Pro Tip: Don’t forget about the “Gigs” section located right under “Jobs.”
