The old fashioned way to find jobs was to search through the Classifieds section of the local newspaper. While some of the larger job search websites job advertising site work better than this “Classifieds” approach, this job search method is also viable. The following are examples of Job Classifieds Sites:
Today’s Classifieds: This website allows unlimited job advertising for employers and recruiters, as well as easy searching for potential employees. Employers can fill out an easy-to-use form that includes the job description, location, and applicant preferences. For instance, recruiters can specify that only local residents can apply to a job. They can also specify whether or not a job includes health insurance, sign-on bonuses, and more. Thus, these postings are very informative to job seekers.
Craigslist : This classifieds website has an entire section just for jobs. Employers and recruiters can post their advertisements for free and get a lot of exposure to job seekers. Craigslist sorts its classified postings based on location so that local and regional job seekers can easily locate openings in their area.
Oodle Classifieds: Like Craiglist, this is a huge classifieds website. It sorts jobs by country (serves the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, India, and Ireland) and is free for recruiters, employers, and job seekers. It has an easy search feature that lets you find exactly what you are looking for. Oodle also searches other websites for classified postings, so the exposure to jobs is very good.
For employers and recruiters: When publishing an job advertisement to one of these classifieds websites, be sure to be detailed. Include location, company name, and all other information a job seeker may need. Since job postings are free, some searches run into bogus scam advertisements. So, they have their guard up. If you have a detailed posting, you can lower the risk that a potential employee will consider your ad a scam. This in turn will increase the number of responses you see for your job posting.
For job seekers: Be aware of scam advertisements. If a job posting sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Don’t pay a potential employer any money (for an interview, background check, etc.). And don’t respond to an advertisement that is very vague. Good ads will tell you job requirements, salary, and location at the bare minimum.
