When you think of job boards, there are probably a few that pop into mind right away, like Indeed, Monster, LinkedIn or CareerBuilder.
But did you know there are 100s, perhaps 1,000s of job sites out there?
And if you're a recent graduate, hiring manager or small business owner, you should too.
But don’t worry about combing through them all yourself.
We’ve got the top 50 job boards, with information on pricing and the audience you’ll reach, ranked below. If you're a recruiter or employer you can post jobs for free, and interview the best candidates on the most popular job boards.
How did we rank these job boards? We used a combination of factors including website traffic, number of open job listings and 3rd party reviews to rank the job posting sites in order of popularity and of course candidate preference.
By far, Indeed is the most popular job posting site in the world. It started off as a search engine for jobs that would crawl the web and index every job ever published. Now Indeed has become more popular than any other job board in the world. Think of them as the Google of jobs. Indeed claims over 180 million unique visitors per month and is available in 50 countries and 28 languages.
By far the most popular classifieds website, Craigslist also provides job postings which receive a ton of applicants. Typically aimed at blue collar workers (hospitality, trades etc.) and entry level roles. The cost is quite affordable so we recommend this highly for blue collar and entry level roles and some white collar roles. Be warned though - you will likely receive a lot of non relevant candidates, so be patient and work through them.
LinkedIn is the world’s most popular social network for professionals. It is fast becoming a place to post jobs and talent management due to its enormous reach and growth in active users. LinkedIn is mostly suited to white collar jobs as its growth has predominantly been professionals with desk jobs. A good place to post jobs to fill more senior roles also. With the rise of social recruiting, LinkedIn is a must.
Monster.com has consistently ranked among the top 3 job boards, alongside Indeed and Careerbuilder.com, in terms of web traffic. It’s a great job board for a wide range of jobs. Pricing is based on the number of postings you buy - the more you buy, the cheaper each post is.
Facebook is a great place to post jobs if you’re interested in finding passive recruits - people who weren’t necessarily looking for a job. Connecting with people on Facebook also gives you a chance to learn about them in a more personal way. Posting can be free, but you can increase the visibility of your job depending on how much money you’re willing to spend.
