My experience since I have been job searching since 2014:

Most useful are Indeed, LinkedIn, and my local job board milwaukeejobs.com. The rest are useless and a waste of time.

Be cautious when reading Glassdoor reviews. The previous company I worked for (which was horrible) gets negative reviews removed (for a price from what I heard).

I have gotten more interviews, call-backs and jobs from Craigslist than anywhere else. Then again, I like working for small businesses, and most do job postings on Craigslist.

Exactly! I was blaming myself because I thought It was my fault. Everyday I receive around 15 emails from Indeed alerts. I put entry level and recent graduate on my alerts but most of them request 5 years of experience or even 10. Some of those alerts are not even related to my field, so 15 emails per day and I am lucky if I can apply for 2 jobs.

Well you go to the large companies in your area and/or companies you wish to work. If they are hiring they will post the job on their website. Would it be easier for you to get in your car and drive to random companies and ask the secretary from 1950 if they are hiring? Or check from home in your underwear on your laptop?
