Job searching web sites

I used to mainly go with Monster.ca and Workopolis. However, I found recently Indeed.ca or Linkedin are very popular. What do you guys use ? Any other good ones ?

Thanks for sharing.

Other than Getting calls for work, only use indeed.

I thought monster and workopolis is dead. And I don't know a single person using linkedin

Indeed
Monster
Craigslist
Kijiji
StackOverFlow(if in CS)

Let your friends & family & old colleagues know about it (highest chance of getting an interview).

Yeah you don't have to use all of that. Just stick to Indeed and Linkedin.

A site being popular is a double edged sword. You have more opportunities but it also means you are competing with more people. It is much harder to make yourself stand out.

Go ahead and use Indeed and Monster and Workopolis. If you are unemployed, you have all the time in the world to register for ALL the sites out there. In addition, you also want to look for companies you want to work for. Many companies have their own job posting section on their websites.

If you are already employed and looking to change job, I'd make more use of recruiting agencies. They can save you time.

I've mostly used Indeed & LinkedIn. LinkedIn is the platform most recruiters have contacted me through.

I've also had some interest with Hired but that's more of a slow process as you submit a profile and the website will try and match you with jobs/recruiters that meet those needs. There's also a limited time they will promote your profile to recruiters so it's better used as a more passive approach to job searching.
