This can help you narrow your search and illuminate certain roles. There are various kinds of job boards such as: Monster and Indeed or more specialized boards like CollegeRecruiter for recent graduates. Each of these types of boards serves a purpose. Your success with job boards varies on your ability to use them properly.
Using LinkedIn Strategically
LinkedIn is more becoming a job board where companies post openings on their branded landing page.
