Knobull Highlights Resources That Strengthen Career Search

Trending...
BOSTON - BostonChron -- Lynn Bentley, President of Knobull reported, "LinkedIn can be an excellent resource for so many things: Getting yourself and your talents out there, networking with people you admire in your field, learning about different industries, and browsing viral posts about work culture are just a few ways to take advantage of the career platform. Over the years, LinkedIn has become one of the most popular job listing sites alongside its networking perks, with a plethora of positions posted hourly!

However, it's not the only job resource available, especially if your skills exist outside its more corporate vibe. There are many more options for job searching outside of LinkedIn and the old guard of Glassdoor, Google, and Indeed that could be better suited to your search."

Target the startup world with Otta, a job site for new and emerging companies. To get started, you take a survey telling them your job preferences, from culture to location. They'll share jobs across marketing, software engineering, product and data, among others, at companies that may appeal to you.

BuiltIn specializes in tech jobs — they've got listings for everything from AI to fintech, gaming to data analytics. You can search jobs by company, size, perks and location to find a good fit for your skill set and career goals in the tech sphere.
