If you’ve been searching for a new career you’re in luck. There has never been a better time to find opportunities online. In the United States there is a sea of options available at your fingertips to research and find the best career options tailored just for you.

We’ve decided to compile a list of the best tools on the internet to use when you’re looking for job opportunities.

1. SuperOffers Jobs

This one is pretty obvious. We of course recommend as our top pick our very own jobs search engine SuperOffers Jobs where you can search for millions of jobs with a single search. It’s like Trivago for job hunting, but without the creepy guy. But in all fairness I gotta admit I am a little biased here.

2. Indeed

Indeed is probably the largest player in the market and of the largest online job boards. Indeed is the go-to place for people from the United States, Australia, France, and South Africa to find part-time and full-time jobs. It’s packed with job listings from employers in every sector–and companies can post job openings on the site for free.

Indeed is also easy to use and job filtering is a breeze. You can filter by type of work, level of experience, business name, and salary so that you can hunt down those high-paying job opportunities. Indeed has a user-friendly interface with a floating sidebar which helps you keep track of where you are in the application process.

3. LinkedIn

LinkedIn is more of a professional social network, but it also has a recruitment service and a jobs portal. The good thing about Linkedin is that if you specify on your own profile that you are open to job opportunities, then prospective employers can find you instead of you looking for them. Several of my friends and colleagues have told me that their dream job found them instead of the other way around all thanks to Linkedin. So don’t overlook this professional network when looking for a job. Despite not billing itself as a work board, the importance of LinkedIn in seeking a job is immense: you can communicate with recruiters, people at companies in every sector, and find opportunities through your LinkedIn connections.

Referrals is where LinkedIn shines. Most work boards tend to be one-way streets, which means an applicant sees a job listing, applies for the position, and is waiting. In comparison, LinkedIn enables back-and-forth contact. For example, if you are interested in a job at a given company, you can contact a person who works for that company and learn more about their hiring process. You may also communicate directly with the hiring managers. LinkedIn will gratuitously allow you to build a simple profile, and you can browse thousands of job openings that suit your profile.

4. Glassdoor

Glassdoor is best known for its reviews of companies and employers. It started as a website where workers can post about the community, wages, work climate, benefits, and so much more to help job seekers have a small window into these companies and its leaders. Glassdoor is a great forum for getting an idea of whether or not you would want to work for a company

Glassdoor has grown, and is now one of the rising online work search sites. Besides showing the feedback and ratings of companies, you can also find out the latest job openings at companies. You’ll also see ratings of the companies that you may be interested in.

5. ZipRecruiter

ZipRecruiter started out as a small business platform designed to charge small businesses a single fee for posting their jobs to multiple job boards. It then later became a jobs portal in itself. Today is one of the top career sites worldwide. Job seekers can post their resumes and apply for a job with one click. ZipRecruiter stores your profile, resume, and informs you when there are new jobs in your location, sector, or related job positions so you are always updated as new listings and opportunities are available on the web. As Linkedin, ZipRecruiter makes it simple to apply for jobs with your saved profile information, you can apply to any job in seconds. It also has a neat little function that alerts you when a company has viewed your resume.

Research shows that people live happier lives when they pick occupations that align with their passions and long-term life goals. Landing your dream job sometimes requires good research. Thankfully we live in amazing times where that research can be done with a mouse and a keyboard.
