Job Search Websites
Job search engines allow you to search major job posting websites, company job listing

The following lists some recommended job search engines and recommendations for using them. Be sure to check out our employment fraud information below to avoid falling victim to people who prey on job seekers.
- Chaffey Connect - An online career services portal where students, alumni, and employers can network. The portal can be access by any current or former Chaffey College students and maintains a list of at least 100 local job postings daily.
- Indeed – Indeed.com is an easy-to-use search engine for jobs and one of the most efficient sites for surveying job listings. The search function collects information from job boards, news sites and company listings. An advanced search option enables users to search by location, keywords and salary range.
- Career Builder – One of the most widely used job search sites, CareerBuilder.com can be used to explore job postings, take personality tests, get career advice, and access a wealth of articles and resources to help you advance your career path.
- Simply Hired – like Indeed.com, SimplyHired is a quick way to survey a massive number of job listings. One advantage of SimplyHired over other search engines is that job listings display a user’s LinkedIn connections to each job.
- USA Jobs – The government’s official site for federal jobs and employment information, USAJobs lists thousands of jobs, from the Defense Department to the Department of Transportation. It also has information about eligibility, compensation and benefits for federal workers, including vacation time, commuter subsidies, insurance and child care.
- EdJoin – A public education job search web site, EdJoin.org is a great place to search for local jobs in K-12 schools. Postings include openings for classified (staff), certificated (faculty) and management positions.
- Monster – One of the oldest online job boards, Monster.com allows job seekers to post their résumés and search job listings for free. The site includes tons of free content on everything from résumé and cover letter writing to interviewing tips to sample resignation letters.
Avoiding Employment Fraud
When someone posts an employment opportunity to illegally collect personal information or commit other crimes against you, that's employment fraud. Young people are a popular target. Here are warning signs that a job may be fraudulent:
- The promise of a large salary for very little work, especially jobs that promise thousands of dollars of income per month with little or no experience required
- Positions that ask/require you to give credit card or bank account numbers, or copies of personal documents
- Jobs that request payments by wire service or courier
- Positions in which you are offered a large payment or reward in exchange for allowing the use of your bank account - often for depositing checks or transferring money
- While there are legitimate opportunities for individuals to work from home, be sure to research the position in advance of applying. Also read Work-at-Home Schemes by the Better Business Bureau.

- Learn about these Fake Job Scam Examples
You can protect yourself or others by:
- Calling the police if you believe you are the victim of fraud from a job listing
- Researching each company advertising a job listing
- Checking the company's website for anything suspicious
- Google searching the company name followed by words such as "fraud," "scam," "reviews," "complaints," etc.
- Search for the company name on RipOffReport.com.
