There are many, many different kinds out there. Some require you to pay, some require you to interview, and others are public access. Here are 10 job boards that people use, and hopefully these reviews can help you to know which ones you might like to be a part of. Let’s go:
Angel.co - This is a job board for start-up companies. Lots of companies are looking to hire people for part-time gigs with the hopes of keeping them on full time. If you’re a start-up type person, these can be some really fun job options. A friend of mine found a customer representative job on there, and it has since led her to a remote job as a manager, and she loves it!
Indeed.com - This job board is public access. You will find any and everything on here. It’s a good place to start, but usually, it gets overwhelming with too much information, and everyone is applying for jobs here. It’s a good resource for overviews of what is out there in your field, though.
