Finding a new job can be very stressful. Researching companies, filling out job applications and fine-tuning resumes takes a lot of time. Sometimes looking for a new job feels like a full time job!
After announcing my big decision last week, my moving date is less than 4 months away.
My primary concern has been finding a new job.
While this seems like a lot of time to find a new job, I am pretty busy most days and don't have a lot of time to spare.
I want to focus on a couple alternative job search websites that are worth looking into when searching for a new job.
This is a paid membership job site, but is hands down my favorite place to search for a job.
Flexjobs covers all job categories and is not geared towards one specific niche.
If you are a blogger or freelancer, this is a great resource to find virtual assistant and blogging jobs.
Since I recently decided to explore my options and provide blogging services, this website has been an amazing asset. The website is broken down into different categories:
- Part time
- Full time
What I really like about Flexjobs is that it always provides the company name, job description and a link to the job listing. They also screen every job listing and delete postings once the position is filled, so I'm not wasting time applying to a job that is non-existent.
Because this is a paid membership site, I was on the fence paying for something like this. There are monthly and yearly plans available. I found a coupon for the yearly plan and it has already paid for itself.

Similar to most job boards, ZipRecruiter caters to all careers and is not specific to one niche.
This website is free and is geared towards multi-taskers. Once you register and upload your resume, you can apply for multiple jobs with one click of a button.
All jobs are listed in a grid, so you are able to read each job description on a page and then check off which ones you want to apply for. There is also an option to include a customized or general cover letter for each job that you apply to online.
I literally applied for a few jobs in a matter of seconds. ZipRecruiter is an amazing tool if you are short on time!
Here is a list of niche specific job boards
Krop – design, tech and creative jobs
Mashable – tech, blogging, design, programming, creative jobs
We Work Remotely – design, admin, customer service, programming, copywriting, miscellaneous
Staff – virtual assistants, copywriting, programming, blogging, social media management, marketing

Overall there are so many different websites to view when it comes to looking for a new job. It is best to have various options and think outside the box when it comes to your job search!
