Simple Job Hunting Tip

If your are using job boards as a source for opportunities, there is a site that can help save you significant time and energy.

A nifty tool I use is a web site “Indeed” does a scan of job boards and provides a singular portal to view jobs that meet your search criteria.

Essentially, you can search multiple job boards, both external (Monster, DICE, etc.) and internal (corporate, staffing companies, etc.) to find jobs that meet your search criteria (location, salary, type, etc.). You can also save your search and have it run automatically as a search agent.

A weak point of Indeed is that the search criteria is fairly basic. It does not do a particularly good job of categorizing jobs as to search for a specific job by title. Searching is done via a simple keyword search. Indeed is really a “broad net” when it comes to sweeping up jobs posted elsewhere. But, it saves time from going to multiple company web sites, and leads to positions you might not have thought about.
