What are the best job sites to use in 2012? It can be hard to figure that out because there are so many new sites and apps for job searching, plus there are sites that are integrated with your social networking profiles. So, where do you begin?
If you're just starting a job search from scratch, I'd recommend beginning with the basics. For professional jobs, LinkedIn is a site you will need to use to make connections and to job search.
For all types of jobs, the job search engines (Indeed, LinkUp, SimplyHired, US.jobs, and others) are a must-have on the list of job sites to use. They are quick and easy to use.
The traditonal job boards (Monster, CareerBuilder, Dice) are still good sites to use and you have the added benefit of mobile apps so you can find and apply for jobs from your phone or tablet. On the topic of apps, there are many you can use to tap your social networking connections to help with your job search.
When you're looking for a job close to home, Craigslist is still a good bet and there are many other sites that focus only on local job listings.
