Online resources and career sites that list jobs
are important tools for job search. Internet job boards are now the primary method that employers use to post their jobs. Job search engines, that aggregate job listings from both job boards and employer career sites have also become popular.

There are many job sites found on the Internet, including major job boards such as Monster and Careerbuilder, that solicit general consumer web traffic and specialized or niche job resources targeted to a particular audience or demographic. Each job portal offers special facilities to its subscribers, and some offer specialized career advice and/or networking among its members.
Job search engines, such as Indeed, SimplyHired, and Juju, have become popular career search destinations. These sites aggregate all of the jobs listed on job boards and combine them with job posts from employer career sites. These search engines for jobs operate much like Google or Bing, except narrowly targeted to a "vertical" of search, in this case, employment and job listings.
Social media sites have recently overtaken job boards as preferred job sites. Sites like LinkedIn offer member to member networking, interesting content, and ways to directly connect with employers. There are also independent tools and software systems, such as Branchout, that overlay popular social networks like Facebook with a job referral and application system. Few job sites rival the traffic and visibility of Facebook, so this promises to be a popular source for employment, although as of this writing, no formalized job search solution has been natively offered by the website.
