The top job boards that job seekers and recruiters are using around the world.
Job boards are one of the most misused tools in a job seeker's toolbox.
The worst way to use a job board is the easiest way: just jump right in and start applying to the first jobs you qualify for. That short term gain often leads to long term pain as you're competing with many other job seekers for a job at a company you may ultimately not even want to work for.
On the other hand, the best way to use a job board is as a research tool to gauge demand for your current skills and which employer-attracting skills to learn next. Then, target companies directly, away from the job board.
The larger the job board, the better it will represent your industry's job market, the better an impression of market demand it will give you.
With that in mind, here are many of the biggest, most popular job boards around the world. Browse the list, enjoying some of the job board logos while you're at it, or simply look for your country or ‘international' and start researching.
