When you’re looking for a new career, job boards are most candidates' first stop in finding the right opportunity. But nowadays, with there being hundreds of places to search for roles, it can be difficult to know where to begin.
The good news is, that job boards now offer so much more than just allowing you to apply for roles - whether that's career advice, the ability to review insights on salary statistics, free CV support or even employer reviews. Sites now even give you the freedom to set up job alerts based on your preferences and allow you to make your CV easily accessible to thousands of recruiters, simply by clicking a button. Winner!
The bad news is, that with such a great choice of sites to browse, it’s harder than ever to know which sites are actually worth your time and effort. But in order to maximise the results of your job hunt, focusing on the job sites with the largest number of available (and relevant) roles, combined with the best functionality, is key.
Job hunting itself is time-consuming, so there's no use spending hours researching each and every site on the market. Thankfully, the experts at StandOut CV have put together a handy infographic to help you pinpoint your search towards the best quality job sites.
They analysed hundreds of live job boards and websites and reviewed them based on a range of key factors, including their top features, number of live roles and usability.
