Job Listings Websites: 6 Resources You Should Know

Hunting for jobs can be overwhelming. Besides all the other concerns, the sheer number of job listing websites means an awful lot of trial and error in a process that is already fraught with difficulties. Are you spending your time on a site that has enough available openings to meet your qualifications?

If you're just getting started, I recommend you check out our computer learning tool, Chicago DigitalLearn. We have two tutorials on creating a resume and online job searching that you may find beneficial.

If you're already prepared and ready to go, make sure that you know these helpful job searching websites:

  • Indeed searches jobs that are posted on thousands of different websites.
  • Idealist is for jobs with social impact.
  • City of Chicago Employment Services lists all current openings. Remember, you have to live in the city to work for the City!
  • Illinois Job Link is a site maintained by our state government. In addition to job searching, you can read good tips and how-to guides.
  • USAJOBS is the hiring site for the federal government.
