Find a Job Using These 26 “Under The Radar” Job Search Engines

 By Jeff Gillis

If you were born anytime after 1950 and have looked for a job at any point between 1995 and now, chances are you have done at least part of your job search online using job search engines.

Okay, so if you’re anything like my dad (who only recently learned how to use a bank machine to take out cash instead of a teller…don’t even get me started on online banking), then maybe not.

Nevertheless, looking for jobs online is now the norm.  In fact, it’s gotten so widespread that nearly everybody has a handful of job search websites that they either follow weekly or don’t hesitate to jump on when it comes time to look for a job.

I’m sure you have your “go-to’s” as well.  Monster.  Careerbuilder.  Indeed.

These are all fantastic options that you definitely should be using to your advantage.

But’s here’s the deal. Literally every job seeker on the planet is using Monster.com. Heck, everyone I know uses Careerbuilder. And Indeed? Fuggetaboudit.

While these great job search websites may have the largest collection of jobs (and therefore opportunities) available online, they are also a melting pot of competitors who are out to get the exact same job you are.

To complete your job hunt arsenal you need to focus in on the industry that you are hoping to begin (or further) your career in, and to do that you sometimes need to go off the beaten path.

There are tons of other smaller, more specific “niche job search engines” that help cut through the fat and clutter of the larger job sites.

But what are the best ones?  How do you know if they are legit?

Well, Mike and I have done the heavy lifting for you and pulled together our list of some of the top lesser-known job search sites available.

With that said, here is our list of Top “Under The Radar” Job Search Engines…
