Graduating from college is an exciting time for everyone, but it doesn’t come without its own set of fears and challenges. All of a sudden you’re expected to immediately find a job, start living on your own, and likely be paying off a massive pile of student loans. It can be hard deciding where to start on the job search that will undoubtedly define the beginning of the long career you have ahead of you. With technology becoming ever so important in our lives, there are dozens of job search websites that you can utilize to find the best job. Here’s a list of ten of the best job search websites for those of you who have recently graduated and need a place to start.
This site is really the best if you’re looking for management and business related job opportunities. You can apply to almost all the jobs on-site and they have a mobile option!
Most of us are pretty familiar with Indeed already (as a matter of fact it’s how I found my first internship). They have literally hundreds of postings for jobs and internships of all kinds. They also have a mobile option, and you can apply to a lot of the jobs directly through the site.
This is one of the best job search websites for technology professionals. You can create personalized salary estimates and receive job notifications through their website or mobile app! With their having nearly 80,000 job postings, you can’t go wrong here.
