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 »

6- SimplyHired

If you're looking for a good job search engine that focuses on local job listings, SimplyHired can be a good choice. You can browse by town, by zip code, or by state to find the job that might be right for you.   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

Craigslist logo

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 »

Many readers over the years have asked me about ways to make money online doing research. There’s no question that being good at online research is a profitable skill, so if you’re someone who is a master of Google, or the person everyone else goes to when they are looking for specific info and they know you can find it faster than they can, then you’ll want to read this post.

Below you’ll see some companies that pay you just for doing research, and a list of work at home industries where online research skills are important to have.

Good luck! And as always, please comment below if you know of other options I could add here. And if you like this kind of info, please consider becoming a newsletter subscriber and/or following my Facebook page to see more of it. I send out new work at home job leads and work at home updates weekly.


#1 – Wonder – Read Review – Open to US residents except those located in New York, Massachusetts, and California. This is a company I just learned about over the past few weeks. Their clients submit questions that they need answers to, and as a Wonder researcher, you do the searching online to find the best possible resources for answering their questions, and then use those resources to provide detailed answers. Work whenever you want, and get paid via Paypal twice monthly. Wonder claims that active researchers earn over $2,000 per month.

#2 – 10EQS – This company occasionally has openings for online researchers. They do prefer to hire people who have business degrees or business experience. There are also other remote jobs available regularly.

#3 – Article One Partners – With Article One Partners, you have the opportunity to get paid for submitting high quality research in studies that suit your personal preferences. However, this is not guaranteed pay because the website clearly states that you will only receive a reward if you are declared the “study winner or MVR,” so that is for sure something to keep in mind before you spend time there.


There are many companies that don’t have an ongoing need for online researchers, but do occasionally have these types of openings. If you want to search for these jobs on your own so you don’t miss them when they go live, I recommend doing so via Indeed and also FlexJobs. Another option is Upwork, a popular platform for freelancers where companies post many types of jobs/projects.

On Indeed, just make sure you put “research” or “researchers” in the search form, using the word remote for your location to find the home-based jobs. FlexJobs has an entire section for research jobs, all guaranteed legit companies. There is a $15 a month fee to access FlexJobs listings, but I have found that to be worth it considering there are guaranteed no scams posted and also many reputable companies choose to list their leads exclusively with FlexJobs. You can set your account up so it doesn’t auto-bill you under “account settings” after you’ve logged in if you just want to try it for one month.


#1 – Freelance Writing – For most freelance writers, research is half the job! If you’re a good researcher and you are also a good writer, then this is for sure an industry you might want to look into.

#2 – Transcription – Because transcription is technically listening to audio files and typing out what you hear, it doesn’t seem as though online research would factor in, but it does. Transcribers often have to listen to audio where people are discussing subjects they know nothing about, and online research is key in order to ensure transcriptions are typed out correctly. If you’re good at online research and you’re also a fast typist with a good ear, then transcription might be something to consider.

#3 – Search Engine Evaluators – People who do search engine evaluation need to be very comfortable using Google and also very internet savvy in general. Being a good online researcher lends itself very well to this type of work.


#4 – Online “Experts” – There are a number of sites that pay people who are experts in specific industries to answer questions for people who need answers. And even though you might be an expert about something, you still may need to do research to answer the questions. Keep in mind that even though many of these sites let you work when you want, they are also often just good for a little extra money here and there.

#5 – Court Research – There are several legitimate companies that pay researchers to go out and visit courthouses in or near their local areas and hunt down documents for research purposes. Even though this work is technically not all done from your home and much of the research might not be conducted online, it can be a very flexible way to work independently and earn money.


Do you use Google all the time to look things up? Then you should consider getting paid for it with Qmee. This is a Chrome add-on that will display advertisements with many searches you do, and clicking on these ads earns you a little extra change that adds up over time. And the best part is that you can cash out to Paypal no matter how much you have earned (even just a penny) and they pay instantly.
