It can be quite confusing to tell the different between a job search engines and a job search board, but it is wise to understand where both the job search engines and job search listings you see online are actually coming from. In most cases, in your cover letter, you will mention how you discovered the job listing. Simply put; a job search is a site that posts jobs provided by various employers, while job search engines search the web and aggregate job listing from many other job search sites and job boards. The job search engines also aggregate job searches from human resources sites and government sites. If you have a good resume, then these job search engines will love you!
To tell the story a bit better, let me explain where the concept of job search engines and job search boards come from. When I was first laid off from my job, I was very unhappy. My income had been reduced to the point where I couldn't even buy food for my family. After several months of job searching, I found a small business opportunity on the Internet. At that point, I was still unemployed. I was able to apply for a number of jobs, but they either went to another unemployed person or they didn't get back to me in time.
It was at this time that I decided to use the job search engines. I went to one of the major job sites and I started posting my resume. Within a few days, I got a lot of responses. Many of these responses were from employers who wanted to hire me right away – and some of these employers were paying me money per hour.
With the popularity of job search engines and job search boards today, it is very easy to post your resume online and expect a lot of response. The major job search engines and job search boards have thousands of job postings, many of them in your field of expertise. Even if you don't have a specific job in mind, you can put a broad description of what you are good at and where you would like to see your career take you. This can lead to direct contacts with potential employers who might be interested in hiring you.
One thing you have to be careful about is using job search engines and job search boards to contact employers. Many of the sites contain contact information and some of these contain personal information such as phone numbers and home addresses. You never want to give personal information such as these to recruiters unless you are totally confident in the legitimacy of the websites. Fortunately, there are companies who specialize in helping you locate employers who are hiring.
These companies will connect you with employers who post open positions on job search engines and job search boards that you probably have never seen before. They will also help you to arrange your resume and make it look as professional as possible. If you are looking for part time jobs or seasonal jobs, then you can easily search through hundreds or even thousands of these types of jobs without the hassle of contacting employers individually. You will save time and effort, and if you have a quality job search service to help you with your search, then you can be assured that the leads you . . . . . . generate will be high quality ones, since they come from legitimate job boards, job search engines and social media websites which are specifically set up to provide jobs to people like you.
