Do Job Boards Work?


This google search brings people to my website on a daily basis.

  • “Do job boards work?”

Yes, job boards still work. I’ve said this 100 times.  But you should work harder and increase your chances of finding a job by being strategic.

Also, never apply to a job through a job board. Always apply from a company’s website. There’s a lot of fraud out there. Make sure a job is a job and not a scam.

And remember that the most effective way to get a job is through a referral. If you see a great job online, think about your network. Who do you know who works for the company? Who does your network know? Are you connected to anyone on LinkedIn?

But don’t stop using job boards. It is a reliable and valid way to find work — even in 2013.
