The Best Career Opportunities are Online

For tech professionals, the best opportunities are being posted on online job boards.

In a recent survey of 1,000 HR professionals and managers, conducted by Inavero Institute for Service Research, 72 percent of salaried employee recruiting involved online job boards.

Online job boards draw in more responses and cost a fraction of what traditional methods such as referrals and newspapers cost. For this reason you will find the most opportunities online.

To get the most out of online job boards:
  • Regularly check online boards to compare your current pay to what is being offered for similar skill sets and experience level.
  • Keep an eye out for opportunities at specific companies and start building your network with people that work with or at those companies.
  • Use 2 general job boards like Hot Jobs and Careerbuilder and then target 3 or more specific niche job sites like Dice, Tech Careers and Bytes.
  • Don't forget to visit the company's own job board. You might find more opportunities there.
  • If you don't have the skill sets for a particular job on paper, visit the contract and freelance site to pick up projects to help build up your resume.

Scouting the boards is good practice for evaluating your career. Knowing where the best opportunities are listed will come in handy the day you have to find another place to work.
