A job hunt can be a stressful thing, but here are some tools to help you find the jackpot. SimplyHired searches across dozens of job posting sites all at once, it’s a meta-search engine that aggregates results from many places.

Simply Hired

What snatched my attention immediately were the jobs SimplyHired advertised on the front page that were based in the city I live in. Since those suggestions were there the first time I visited the page, they must be making some educated guesses based on IP address. They also offer a resume posting service, which pushes your info out to several sites.

Indeed Job SearchAnother meta-search engine in the same space is Indeed. They’ve been around a bit longer and may have more sites indexed, but I found their search results less intuitively accurate than SimplyHired.

I’ve signed up for a customized RSS feed with each service to keep an eye on new jobs opening up in my area. It sure beats browsing through the 8pt fonts in newspaper classifieds!
