If you want a decent quality job look for the job on the companies website and apply directly not on career builder or monster.
^^ This. And a good site to use is Linkup.com. Jobs are pulled directly from the employers websites.

Monster is terrible. I've had good luck with indeed.com.
CareerBuilder is another mostly marketing scam type job site, too.

And I'll add to the chorus that Monster sucks, at least in my field (brokerage). Nothing but BS sales/temp/fake/scam job listings.


CareerBuilder can be good if you use the filters in the search, but I found my last couple of jobs via LinkedIn. Also my state's unemployment office had a good job search site as well.
I keep mentioning to everyone on here that their local state unemployment office is a good option for job search but some refuse to listen.

Indeed is the best and it's not even close.

But what if you're not unemployed? Or what if you're looking for work out of state where you plan to relocate?

Places do phone interviews. Places set up interviews on days that work for you. Places fly you out and pay for your relocation expenses if they want you bad enough.

No I mean the actual career center is for people who are not working at all not someone who is employed. Someone who is employed should be able to get another job from networking with current and past coworkers.

At least here in Minnesota, the unemployment office's job search site is publically available


https://minnesotaworks.net/


They also offer classes and services for everyone, regardless if they are employed or not, like stuff like resume writing, networking, basic computer skills, etc.


I think a lot of states and areas are the same, but a lot of people don't know about it.

It's the same here in PA which is how I found my current job.
