If you’ve told yourself that it was time for a new job, but you just haven’t taken the time to go through the process, listen up.  A service called Indeed will help you immensely in your search for a new job, no matter what type of job that you’re looking for.  The reason that it’s so helpful compared to other career services like Monster or Hot Jobs is that it includes listings from job boards, newspapers, and company employment sites.  This means all of the jobs are in one location which saves you time and the hassle of jumping from one source to another.




When you search, you can either enter in a job title, keywords, or a specific company that you’re interested in working for.  You also enter in the city, state, or zip code of the general area you’ll be looking.  You can refine that distance by searching with in 5 miles, 10 miles, etc. There’s also an advanced job search which allows you to include all kinds of information to narrow the job search down further. 

Once you perform a search and it pulls up the search results, you can further refine them by the job type, and the employer or recruiter.  As you can see below, I search for “Computer Engineer” in the Chicago, IL area.  It showed me that Google had four positions open, so I refined the search further by selecting to view only the jobs from Google.  What’s even nicer is that you can save a particular search as an email job alert or receive updates via an RSS feed. Job searching has never been so easy, really!
