Job Search Friday!

Have you been looking for new roles but have struggled with job sites, or are you getting overwhelmed on LinkedIn and applying to jobs with 1000+ applications?

Today I will talk about my top 5 job websites that I see clients have great success with.

First, here are my favorite 5 websites to utilize when applying for jobs! AND yes I put LinkedIn at the bottom! Read more to find out why.


Let's first dive into the advantages of each and why they can be super helpful if you're struggling to find companies that line up with what you're looking for and best of all, they're all free!! 1) Wellfound (formerly known as AngelList)

  • Targets start-up companies specifically.

  • Doesn't get as many applications so it increases your opportunity to get an interview.

  • Most of the posters on there are CEO's, hiring managers, and even recruiters.

  • Has a variety of roles within tech and non-tech.

  • Lets you write a direct message on why you fit the role and doesn't have a limit on how many times you can send a message, unlike LinkedIn.

  • Super easy to apply to roles with just a click of a button and no extra hurdles such as with Workday!

  • Targets start-up companies specifically that are growing and have exceptional funding.

  • Doesn't get as many applications as LinkedIn so it increases your opportunity to get an interview.

  • Most of the posters that review the applications are Engineers, Managers, or even CEO's in addition to recruiters.

  • Strong focus on Engineering, Design, Product, Sales, Marketing, HR, Operations, and Legal positions.

  • Lets you write a direct message on why you fit the role and doesn't have a limit on how many times you can send a message, unlike LinkedIn.

  • Super easy to apply to roles with just a click of a button and no extra hurdles such as with Workday!

  • A blooming new platform that a lot of Fortune 500 companies are starting to use!

  • Great for engineering, product management, and leadership positions.

  • Workspace where recruiters and hiring managers will directly reach out to you if they have a role that fits your resume.

  • Companies apply to you, not the other way around.

  • Don't worry, it's free to sign up for too!!

  • Great for finding small to large size companies that are hiring.

  • Easy way to uncover more about companies, what the work culture is like, what percent of people would recommend the company, and the salary being offered for a wide amount of positions.

  • Easy search method to find roles that fit your skills as well as location.

  • Best of all it's free to use!

  • So many of you will wonder why I added this last.

  • LinkedIn is an amazing place to find jobs but the only downside is that it is so overused and you're going up against high-volume competition. I recently was seeing engineering roles that had between 3,000-5,000 applications.

  • Easy way to filter by company and type of role you're looking for.

  • Free to apply to jobs and give you a personalized resume depending on how you create and utilize it.

  • A major downside of sending hiring managers or recruiting messages you're very limited and even with paid accounts you have less than 40 reach-outs a month which is very low.
