Other Types of Tech Job Boards to Remember
Company specific job boards
Finding your dream job is one thing, but you can also have a “dream business”. Tech powerhouses like Amazon, Google, Meta, and Apple have job boards where you can sort jobs by location, role, and salary.
If you have experience with a specific tool or technology used by a company, researching their job board may pay off. However, exclusively using company-specific job boards can limit your career options.
Job boards of professional organizations
Some professional organizations host job boards listing positions related to their field, making your search easier.
To access a job site run by a professional organization, you may need to become a member. Membership may require dues or fees, but connecting with other industry professionals can be worth it.
Note that not all professional job sites are regularly updated. Check the date of each post to make sure it’s not outdated.
