As noted in Part 1, our goal is to identify the best ways to locate a good, well-paid and full-of-benefits job in our job-seeking process. While we are at it, we will find tons of staffing agencies, thousands of job boards, millions of companies. So, how do I find the right job?

There is no right answer to that question because there are just different ways to get to the same objective, so let’s keep going and explain how each of these paths work so you can choose the right one for you.

It is now time to talk about job boards and job aggregators.

First of all, what is the difference between a job board and a job aggregator? Well, there is a slight but important difference.

A job board is a website that has an amount of job postings of their clients, that is, different companies pay different job boards to have their vacancies posted online.

On the other hand, a job aggregator is a website that looks like a job board, but it is not. A job aggregator actually takes vacancies from different job boards, companies’ websites and basically any -real- job site they can find on the web, they are a search engine, but only for jobs, that’s why they have the highest number of jobs on the web.

That could make you wonder: why do job boards continue to exist, if job aggregators have everything in one place? Because most job boards have the niche of good clients, some of them are even specialized and trusted brands. Furthermore, some job boards have candidates’ databases, making them more appealing for companies and staffing agencies.

In terms of job aggregators and job boards, where should I look for a job? Well, that is an easy question to answer, a job aggregator will always be the best choice. They have millions of job vacancies in one place and a big advantage is they have the most popular companies and fields indexed.

If your field is less known or requires a high level of studies/experience, and you can’t find what you are looking for in the job aggregator, then you should consider a specialized job boards.

Resume Preparation

In addition, don’t forget to upload the most updated version of your résumé onto the most popular job boards -- the ones you trust -- so you get more visibility for recruiters and companies’ hiring managers.
