When searching for a job there are many websites out there that you can use. The website that I use is CareerBuilder. To me this is a great website and worth utilizing if you are in need of employment. So, if you are currently looking for a job online try CareerBuilder. You won’t regret it.
On CareerBuilder you can upload and save different versions of your resume, so when it’s time to apply for a job there is no need for you to search for your resume on your computer and upload it. You may not even have access to your resume if you are doing a job search from a computer other than yours. Each time you apply for a job just select the resume you want to use, that is uploaded to the site, before hitting the Apply for Job button, and you’re all set.
When you upload your resume to CareerBuilder it becomes public. So, when employers do search for possible candidates to fill their positions, your resume may show up in the search and you may be contacted with an employment opportunity.
Plenty of job postings on CareerBuilder are from staffing firms or employment agencies. So, when you apply for a position offered by one of these companies you may also be presented with other job opportunities aside from the ones you actually apply for. That is a huge advantage and can give you a better chance of finding a job for yourself.
When you apply for many jobs it is hard to keep track of it all, especially when it comes to the job description for each job posting. What’s great about CareerBuilder is that whenever you apply for a job that activity is saved in your account so you can always go back and see what jobs you have applied for and read the postings again to refresh your mind on what the positions entail. If you want to apply for a job, and you are taken out of CareerBuilder and required to apply for the job externally, that activity won’t be saved in your account, however, you will still be able to access that position posting by writing a little note and saving it.
Once you apply for certain jobs CareerBuilder will give you job recommendations that are relevant to the jobs you’ve applied for. So, you will be able to apply for those types of jobs without having to search for them each time you log in to your account. You can even have job postings be sent to your email based on the jobs you are searching for and you decide when and how often you want to receive them. That is very convenient and saves you valuable time. What also saves you time is the Quick Apply feature that is available for each job posting, which allows you to quickly apply for a job.
