The best job search websites include:

1. Indeed

Indeed is one of the largest job sites on the planet, and with 10 jobs added every second around the globe, it’s also one of the best international job search sites.

Best of all, it’s free for both employers and job seekers. When you list your job on Indeed, it shows up in the general search results at no cost. But if you want your position in front of even more eyeballs, you can promote your listing for as little as $5 per month.

Indeed covers positions from every industry, and its search engine has several filters to help qualified job seekers laser in on your job openings.

2. ZipRecruiter

ZipRecruiter is a superb job board for employers because it offers several useful tools to make the recruitment process easier. These include applicant tracking system integration, job description templates, time-saving screening questions and a popular mobile app.

To help you find qualified candidates even faster, ZipRecruiter automatically distributes your job listing to over 100 other job sites.

You can get all these nifty features for free if you sign up for a four-day free trial. If you don’t fill your position within that time, you can upgrade to a paid plan starting at $16 per day.

3. LinkedIn

Linkedin is one of the best free job posting sites for employers looking for a more holistic recruiting process. That’s because it’s more than just a job board: It’s the world’s largest social network for professionals.

Instead of just posting your job and waiting for applications to roll in, you can invite top talent into your network, snoop on their profiles (which are essentially digital resumes) and message them directly within the platform.

LinkedIn only allows one free job post at a time, and you can only search and view profiles of candidates in your network. For more search power outside your network, upgrade to a free month-long trial of LinkedIn Recruiter Lite.

4. Glassdoor

Glassdoor isn’t your traditional job board. While job seekers can use it to browse open positions, those positions are actually drawn from the database of Glassdoor’s sister site, Indeed.

As an employer, Indeed is for posting your job and Glassdoor is for building your company’s employment brand. Before applying to jobs, 86% of candidates are likely to read reviews to get the down-low on your company, according to Glassdoor. The more positive reviews you have, the more applications you’re likely to get.

With over 95 million reviews, salary reports and company insights, Glassdoor is the go-to for job seekers searching for company information.

Best of all, you can create a company profile and start collecting reviews for free.

5. Google for Jobs

Google for Jobs is not an actual job site — it’s a form of free job advertising.

When you publish an open position on your company’s website, you can mark up the HTML of the page to instruct Google bots to index that page as a job post. That means it will show up in the Google search results when someone searches for your position.

If nobody on your team is tech-savvy enough to do this, a freelancer from Upwork or Fiverr can get you up and running quickly.

6. CareerBuilder

CareerBuilder is an up-and-coming platform with tools designed to optimize your hiring process and save time finding qualified employees. To do this, it uses artificial intelligence to help you post jobs faster and increase the number of qualified applications you receive.

It even has tools to spy on your competitors to get an idea of what they’re offering. This helps you determine exactly what you need to offer to reel in the top talent.

CareerBuilder has several plans for both small businesses and enterprises, and its entry-level plan starts at $219 per month.

7. Monster

Monster is a monstrous job search engine that covers all industries, skill levels and position types — from full-time employees to part-time remote workers and freelancers.

Job seekers can sift through the sea of open positions using various filters, although the platform lacks a filter for salary range.

Similar to ZipRecruiter, Monster offers a free trial to test out all its time-saving recruitment tools. If you haven’t found your dream employee in four days, a paid subscription starts at $279 per month.

8. FlexJobs

FlexJobs is smaller than mammoth job sites like Indeed and Monster, but sometimes smaller is better.

FlexJobs specializes in remote work, online jobs and freelancing. It also vets every job listing to weed out scams and low-quality jobs.

Because of its tight niche and vetting process, it attracts talented remote workers. Unlike most job sites, Flexjobs charges job seekers a small monthly fee to use the platform. That means you can expect to find serious candidates who are less likely to flake out on you.

Employers can submit five free job descriptions to test out the platform. After that, subscriptions start at $249 per month.

9. LinkUp

LinkUp is a job market data platform that indexes millions of job listings from company websites. In 2021, it launched GetWork, which uses the LinkUp database to connect employers with qualified job seekers.

GetWork scrapes job data from employer websites daily, then verifies every listing to exclude duplicates and outdated listings.

This is a win-win for everyone: Job seekers don’t need to filter through junk listings, and it’s easier for employers to stand out from the crowd.

GetWork offers both pay-per-click and targeted recruitment marketing, so you can reach out to candidates directly or wait for them to come to you.
