New functionality, Indeed!

Job board aggregator Indeed.com has some interesting new functionality, including search by salary.

But first, many job seekers have never heard of job board aggregators, like Indeed.com and SimplyHired.com. Job board aggregators scan multiple job boards (close to 100 for each), so they post a much broader variety of jobs than Monster or CareerBuilder can.

While Monster and CareerBuilder each have more highly defined search criteria, the sheer number of jobs and boards that Indeed and SimplyHired cover is staggering. So it’s great news that Indeed is improving its ability to segment jobs, adding salary as a criteria.

But you say that few employers give estimated pay in job ads. Indeed estimates salaries based on job title when no salary data is given by the employer.

How can you use job board aggregators in your search efforts?

If you’d like more information, a free 30 minute resume consultation, or some advice about your career transition, just email your resume to reCareered at phil.rainmakers@gmail.com, and we'll schedule a time to talk.
