How to Find A Job Near Me

We all know how difficult it can be to find a job. It may be you’ve exhausted every option and need a fresh take. You may have recently re-entered the job search market after years at the same job. Or you may be searching for a job for the first time. No matter what your circumstance, we have tips to help you find the right job for you.

Job Search Program

At Don’t Dread Monday, we’ve developed a comprehensive job search program with access to essential tools and services for your job search benefit. From direct access to over 1,000 recruiters to self-assessments, interview prep, and on-demand training on every aspect of successful career transition.  The OI Solutions Career Center™ is your one-stop-shop for fast results in finding a job.

Job Boards

When googling “jobs near me,” one of the first sites to pop up is probably Indeed, or possibly another general job board site. While these are easy ways to see who’s hiring, they’re not always the most effective way to get hired. Try searching for positions on sites specific to the job you’re looking for, such as Construction Jobs or Healthcare Job Site. You can access a whole list of niche job sites here.


With 42% of workers finding a job posting through LinkedIn (according to a 2020 JobVite survey), it’s becoming more and more essential to have a LinkedIn profile. Like and follow companies you’re interested in working for, connect with friends and colleagues, and post your own accomplishments on your profile. Not only will this give recruiters something to look for, but it will also give you a chance to communicate and network with people who might be hiring or know of someone who is. This brings us to our last point...


Networking is an essential part of any job search. When looking for a job, ask your friends and colleagues about any potential openings. LinkedIn is a great way to accomplish this. The site is also an easy way to join groups relevant to your field, where recruiters can find you, and you can connect with people in your same career and broaden your job search horizons. Don’t be afraid to tell people you’re searching for a job. The larger your net, the more likely you’ll catch something.
