The 5 Best Job Search Websites

The majority of your time should be spent networking, and applying directly to companies that interest you. That’s how people are getting hired for the BEST jobs right now.

However, there’s still a place for job boards in your job hunt, as long as you don’t rely on them too much.

Right now, we feel there are 5 large job portals that are worth using.

You may also want to consider using niche or industry-specific job boards in addition to the “big 5”.

Best Books For Job Seekers

Some of the best resources for job seekers are books that can be bought on Amazon for around $5-10 (and we think that’s a relatively small investment for what it could get you – a higher paying job in less time).

So we put together a list of the best books for job seekers, broken down by categories like: Resumes, Interviews, Networking, Negotiation and much more.

(I also put my absolute FAVORITE book about entrepreneurship on the list. If you have any interest in building a “side hustle” that makes money, starting a business, or working for yourself one day instead of having a job forever, then make sure to check out that last book recommendation at the bottom of the list 🙂 ).
