Job Posting Websites for Creatives

We all know scouring LinkedInMonster and CareerBuilder, can come in handy when you are looking for a job, but there are other places on the web where creatives can find and apply for job postings. Here are a few I've used or have heard about recently that I took some time to look into: AIGA Design Jobs A comprehensive listing of professional positions, competitive internships, and pro bono opportunities across the country brought to you by The Professional Association of Design. Modify your search by selecting locations and/or a specific discipline. Members have full access to job postings, and membershiprates for both students and professionals are as low as $50/year.

Indeed Similar to a google search, you can browse jobs by keyword and location. There is also a resume search - checking out other creatives gives you a look at the competition and may help with organizing and writing your own resume.

Simply Hired Simply Hired has one of the largest and most comprehensive job lists that I've seen out of this bunch. You can utilize numerous filters including date posted, distance, company, etc. There's an option to connect via LinkedIn and if you give up your email address new jobs that meet your search criteria will be sent straight to your inbox.

Smashing Jobs Smashing Magazine caters to creative professionals and their job posting board lists mainly interactive design positions from around the world. You can search for design and/or programming, part-time/full-time, and by location.

Design:Related Started in 2006, Design:Related is "a community site with portfolio, inspiration, and news tools that brings together creative people from different disciplines (and parts) of the design and art world. The design:related community serves to motivate designers and creatives to share their work and visual ideas, network and collaborate with other creatives, and find job opportunities."

Krop Krop features portfolio website templates and hosting for members that are made available to employers who post positions on the site. You can search positions by keyword and location and look at complete job descriptions (many also list salary/benefits - great to research). No membership required.

Authentic Jobs Free to browse jobs, view complete listings, and apply! Search by location and for full-time, contract, freelance, or internships.

FWA The FWA (Favorite Website Awards) features award-winning web and interactive design. Their are a variety of jobs posted for all levels.

 

If you are interested in a particular company, do your research! Some firms choose to forego job sites. They may post job opportunities directly on their website, and oftentimes start with an already existing pool of possible hires and/or freelancers they keep on file. Call them directly to find out what their process/hiring criteria entails and get started!
