i notice some companies don't use Indeed, Glassdoor, or Linkedin. But it's a hassle going to each company website seeing if they are hiring. Does anyone else actually go to different company websites to see if they are hiring?

I have tried it, but, the problem is, I don't know a lot of the names of the companies around here. I've tried going to some sites and they don't even have a place to look for jobs there.

Yes, I've tried all sorts of things. Gotten some interviews, but never a job.

Also just and see what opportunities your local state career services center has which is connected to unemployment.

I have done it, and prefer applying on the direct site vs indeed. I seem to get farther faster that way. Its hard to think up all the different companies within your area but do all the ones you know. Then you can search your city name and businesses in search engine and usually you can find a list of all company names. It helps you to remember what else is out there.

I do a search by zipcode using Indeed to find local employers. If something looks interesting, I then go to the company's website to apply directly. I've always applied direct vs. search engines.

Linkup.com claims to search direct from the employer's websites. It claims to search over 25,000 employer websites for open positions.


But then also remember that many employers do not advertise any jobs on their websites so you will still want to cross reference with sites such as indeed.com, etc.
