Finding the right job is no easy task. Normally I find jobs through listservs or referrals, instead of first turning to Google. I’ve had a number of part time PR jobs or internships, but I’ll be looking for a full time job at the end of this year. Here are some of the websites I’ve found that provide PR professionals with a starting place for the job search.
- PRSA has a job center for members to either post jobs or apply for them. It’s a useful site, but requires membership before going through the postings.
- Indeed.com allows people to search jobs by type and location. When typing PR jobs into a search engine, Indeed was one of the first to pop up, with my location already entered.
- Simply Hired is another job website that automatically filters for location and job type. It supplements what Indeed doesn’t pick up.
- LinkedIn seems like one of the first places to go. However, LinkedIn is also one of the most popular and competitive sources of jobs. Users can see how many people, oftentimes in the hundreds, that applied to a single job. It’s wise to use LinkedIn in addition to other sites when job hunting.
- Monster remains one of the leaders of job sites. Users can sift through postings from all over the country. After posting their resume, people can easily attach it to multiple postings.
