If you’re on the job search, you might feel like it’s you and your resume against the world (or at least the ATS). But don’t worry — it doesn’t have to be that way! We rounded up 85 of the best job search sites in 2024 to help you on your journey to find a job.

Below, you’ll find AI tools, job boards, resume builders, application trackers, and more.

The Best Job Search Websites That Use AI

You may have already used ChatGPT for your resume or cover letter. ChatGPT is one good job search resource, but AI job search sites have proliferated far beyond OpenAI’s offering.

You can now enlist artificial intelligence (AI) to generate a professional headshot of yourself, draft cold emails to hiring managers, and even automatically submit job applications for you.

The Best Job Boards

You’ve probably heard of LinkedIn and Indeed. Broadening your search to include other job search websites, especially job boards tailored to your industry or role preferences, can help you find opportunities that may be a better fit but aren’t listed on the most popular job boards.

Many companies list open positions on Forage, for example. Once you’ve signed up for Forage and enrolled in a job simulation, you can apply to job openings with Forage’s partner companies by visiting the Achievements tab.

The Best Job Search Sites for Salary Comparison

Salary is one of the most important factors in your job search. Sites like these can help you focus your efforts on roles with fair compensation.

Plus, once you get an offer, you’ll be more prepared to negotiate your salary if you know how much other companies pay for the same role. You’ll also want to calculate your take-home pay before you accept the offer.

The Best Job Search Sites to Build a Resume

If you’re spending hours wrestling with spacing for your resume in Microsoft Word or Google Docs, consider using a resume builder instead. Unless you’re a designer, your time may be better spent editing your resume’s content than formatting it.

Job search sites with resume builders often provide templates tailored to specific industries. AI-powered services that score your resume against job descriptions can be useful, too.

Tips for Success With Job Search Sites and Tools

Once you’re familiar with some of the best job search websites, you can decide on the strategy you’ll use to tackle your job search. For example, maybe you’ll allocate a set amount of time each day to searching for opportunities, filling out applications, networking, and preparing for interviews, using a different tool for each task. 

Making a plan that incorporates the tips below can help alleviate job search anxiety and keep you motivated.

Go Beyond LinkedIn

“In the realm of job searching, it’s crucial to think beyond the traditional platforms like LinkedIn or Indeed,” says Theresa Fesinstine, founder of peoplepower.ai. 

She mentions Slack as an example of an underutilized job search website, pointing out that professional Slack communities often have channels dedicated to job listings. 

“These channels not only provide job listings but also offer a space for real-time interaction with industry professionals,” Fesinstine says. “Job searching is not just about finding the next paycheck; it’s about discovering opportunities for growth and collaboration. Slack channels offer a dynamic, interactive space that can elevate your job search from a transaction to a meaningful engagement.”

Seeking out networking opportunities on Slack, in other online communities, or at events in person can help your job search feel less transactional.

Embrace AI Tools

Though you should avoid completely outsourcing certain job search tasks to AI – like using verbatim ChatGPT output to answer questions on job applications or write your resume – AI tools can still help your job search.

For example, a tool that scores how well your resume matches job descriptions can help you prioritize which applications to complete first. A tool that generates a professional headshot can save you the trouble of shopping for business attire to wear for a photo.

“In an age where AI and automation are often seen as threats to the job market, it’s important to recognize the tools that empower the individual job seeker,” Fesinstine says. “Generative AI doesn’t just optimize a job search; it personalizes it, making the process more human, not less.”

Ask People Who Got Hired

If you have friends or colleagues in your industry who recently got new jobs, reach out to them to ask which job search sites and tools worked for them.

We asked students who got hired at JPMorgan, Bank of America, Wayfair, and Walmart to share their top tips on what actually works to get a finance or software engineering internship:
