Online Job Searching (For Web Developers)

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

I’ve been in the job market twice this year and thought I would share with you some of the sites that I have found useful when looking for a job. Perhaps you know of some good sites that you would like to share too?

Smashing Magazine Jobs
This site has a small selection of web design/development jobs. Most are looking for front-end work like: XHTML, CSS, JavaScript, Flash and ActionScript. You can sort by fulltime or freelance positions. Most of the listings are from the companies and not recruiters.

Authentic Jobs
Authentic Jobs is another site that features a short selection (maybe 100 listings is all) of web jobs. Authentic Jobs is a targeted destination for standards-aware designers and developers and the companies seeking to hire them.

A pretty good selection of design and tech jobs, but the Ajax enabled search on this site really isn’t working for me.

Dice is a huge collection of tech jobs. It’s certainly a place to use when looking for a job. Do note that most of the jobs are posted by recruiters though.

I think Craigslist is actually one of the best places to look for jobs. It has a good selection and most of the post are from the IT directors and not technical recruiters.

Good luck and happy job hunting.

Getting the Job

Monday, December 3rd, 2007

I can ‘t count the number of times I have seen job-seekers post in webmaster forums asking for advice on getting a web development/design job. We all know you are a l33t geek with mad coding skills, but getting a job takes more than technical skills. This post will assume you meet the qualifications for the job and give you some tips to help you stand out from the crowd and get you that job! I’ve been on both the applying and more recently the hiring side of things so these tips will be related to what has worked for me.
