When you search for jobs, you probably want not only many links to potential jobs but also relevant links to jobs that would be perfect for you.
Luckily there are lots of websites to help you out. Not all websites are the same though. Some are Job Boards, those are sites where employers actually post jobs for a fee, and some are search engines, those are sites that roam the web and search for jobs and then link to them. Some are general, that is they list any job they can find, some are specific to a certain group of jobs, or a certain geographical area or both. There are companies who do not like to put their jobs out in the open search engines and so there are also search engines to help you find jobs listed only on company websites. Most websites use the automated programs that roam the internet for jobs. Some job board websites have people looking at the listings and verifying the information before posting them. These websites usually require you to become a member, either paid or just registered, and then you can see their jobs and apply for them. Some jobs are not posted at all and recruiters, searchers and headhunters roam the various internet sites and any other resources they can lay their hands on to find resumes with the keywords that may be a fit for the jobs they have to offer.
Websites come and go, please let us know about any broken links or scams you encounter on these sites.
