Find a Better Job using Search Engines

by Mickey Mixon


Job search engines use state-of-the-art technology to assist people in their job quest.  Here you could enter all the relevant information to reduce the lists of sought after jobs to get more accurate results.


Because new jobs are being added daily, the results you had yesterday may be different from what you see today.  This is where job search engines come in handy.


After some trial and error there are a few job search engines that could yield better results.  They allow searchers to see major job sites, companies and even its associations by entering a keyword and location.  Results can be seen in different ways, it could be in a browser list and some sent thru e-mail.,, America’s Job Bank, Jobster, and are just a few of the search engines that can give you more accurate results.  These sites include over 500 job sources with job boards, prime newspapers, and numerous companies with career pages. even has an advance search option that could be used to search company names, positions, and even the distance for commuters.


America’s Job Bank let’s you enter the job category you would like to search, then you can enter either the city or the zip code and state you would like to find the job and it gives the list of job openings.  If you’re lucky, you can even get the quoted salary from each of the companies you’re focusing on.


In, aside from the list of jobs open, applicants are also given a short description of the job  including the responsibilities to be met.  It also includes the type of company, location and date when the job was posted.


Jobster provides the latest job postings. This site gives you the ability to see the list of the latest posted jobs from a variety of sources.


How Good Are They?


These sites give listings that are relevant and timely, compared to other search engines that generate results that could be a lot older than the others.  Some would even provide results that are far from the location you seek.


So far the best among the search engines used is the Simplyhired.Com.  It showed the job title, a link was given to the company, also provided was a summary of the job description, where the job is located and where it originated.  The produced results are easy to read, non-confusing plus the website is user friendly.
