What are the best jobs platforms?

Job seekers have many options when looking for a job online. There are several large jobs platforms and numerous smaller industry-specific websites for positions in UX, programming, finance, marketing, and others.

We've put together a list of the 8 best jobs platforms in 2022. On the surface, these online job boards look similar, but they each offer different features and benefits.

1 - LinkedIn Jobs

Why we love LinkedIn Jobs: "Extensive listings and easy to apply using your LinkedIn profile."

LinkedIn Jobs has one of the most extensive job listings across just about every industry. As most job listings ask for a link to your LinkedIn profile, starting on the social network makes sense.

As well as finding a job, you can also network with recruiters and potential employers to increase your chances of securing a position at your desired company.

Another great thing about LinkedIn is that it's location-agnostic. Most of the top job sites feature positions mainly in the United States, Canada, Europe, and the United Kingdom, whereas LinkedIn Jobs offers many more international options.

LinkedIn Jobs allows you to add several filters to narrow down your preferred position and match your skillset, including:

  • Date posted
  • Experience level
  • Company
  • Job type
  • Remote/on-site
  • Easy Apply—Jobs that allow you to apply using your LinkedIn profile—usually with one click

2 - Indeed

Why we love Indeed: "Detailed job cards in listings making it quick and easy to scan for your preferred role, location, salary, etc."

Indeed is the biggest job portal in the world. The site boasts 250 million users with listings in 50 countries, including the United States, Canada, the UK, and Europe.

Like LinkedIn Jobs, Indeed offers a one-click job-apply feature for account holders on specific listings.

One of the best features on Indeed for job hunters is the Company reviews section, allowing you to view feedback from current and previous employees—giving you insights about what to expect.

3 - Glassdoor

Why we love Glassdoor: "Salary comparison tool to check what you can expect to earn for a position by country, state/province, or city."

Glassdoor is most famous for its comprehensive salary comparison tool that provides detailed information about salaries worldwide. Users can also enter their years of experience to get a more accurate estimate.

On Glassdoor company profile pages, job seekers can read current/former employee reviews, see job listings, salaries by position, benefits, and read about the interview process from previous applicants.

Glassdoor Careers offers career advice with an Interviews section to understand what employers might ask during a typical interview process. This helpful tool will prepare you to feel confident and ready for any interview.

4 - Google Jobs

Why we love Google Jobs: "Search available jobs from all platforms from a single search engine."

Why search for jobs on each platform individually when you can use Google to explore them all at once! Google Jobs pulls listings from multiple platforms, including LinkedIn, Glassdoor, Monster, and even individual company websites, so that you can search for your desired position from a single user interface.

Google Jobs offers several filters to narrow down that dream job, including:

  • Category
  • Job Title
  • Location
  • Date published
  • Type
  • Company type (industry)
  • Employer

Google lists all the job platforms where each job is posted, allowing you to choose your preferred portal to apply. Google also pulls salary data and employee reviews from Glassdoor, Salary.com, and other platforms, providing you with a comprehensive job-seeking experience in one convenient place.

5 - ZipRecruiter

Why we love ZipRecruiter: "Phil, the AI-powered personal recruiter who searches ZipRecruiter for jobs that match your skills, preferences, and experience."

ZipRecruiter is a popular jobs platform for US-based job seekers. You can also use ZipRecruiter UK for UK-based positions, but the website is most helpful for searching for work within the United States.

ZipRecruiter's automation allows you to find and apply for jobs—even while you sleep! Phil, the AI-powered recruiter, pitches your profile to potential employers who can then reach out if they're interested in interviewing. This tool is fantastic for those who don't have the time to search for jobs.

6 - Behance

Why we love Behance: "The best jobs platform for creatives with space to showcase your portfolio."

Behance is an Adobe-powered social network for designers to showcase their work and find inspiration. The platform also has a jobs portal offering various creative positions for UX/UI, graphic design, architecture, fashion, and video, to name a few.

The best thing about applying through Behance is that creatives can link directly to their portfolio so employers can review their work experience and projects.

Behance's simple jobs portal allows you to search for any creative position with three filters:

  • Type (full-time, part-time, freelance, etc.)
  • Location
  • Field

The field filter is handy as it allows job hunters to narrow down their specific expertise, for example, app design, branding, or cinematography.

If you're a creative and never used Behance, we highly recommend using the platform to showcase your work and find your dream creative position.

7 - We Work Remotely

Why we love We Work Remotely: "The biggest jobs platform for those who prefer to work remotely."

We Work Remotely only lists employers posting remote work or work from home positions. The platform features jobs from many top companies, including Google, Amazon, GitHub, Invision, and more. While many employers are US-based, they often welcome applicants from around the world.

Most of the jobs on We Work Remotely are tech-based, like design, product, engineering, and customer support, with a few in sales, marketing, and finance. The platform also has a contract section for those not interested in full-time work.

8 - AngelList Talent

Why we love AngelList Talent: "The best jobs platform for startup jobs with an intuitive salary calculator."

AngelList is the world's leading platform for connecting founders with potential investors. AngelList Talent is an extension to the platform, allowing job hunters to find work at startups and leading tech companies.

AngelList Talent's UI feels more like a social network than a jobs platform, allowing you to build a comprehensive profile with your skills and experience. You can apply to have your profile featured directly to companies, and AngelList Talent displays relevant jobs below your profile so you can find highly relevant positions immediately.

AngelList Talent also has a Remote feature for those who prefer working remotely.
