Pittsburgh has a booming IT industry and a wealth of jobs available. But that can make it a challenge to find the right one. There are countless classifieds to sort through, especially if you’re looking for a specific type of position. If you’re trying to find solid leads for your IT career, here are the top five places you can begin your search.
Indeed is one of the largest resources for professional jobs, including those in Pittsburgh. Indeed lets you choose positions by salary, job type, location, and company. Many organizations today complete their hiring solely through Indeed classifieds. In general, the positions on Indeed tend to be more advanced and higher paid than Monster, as there are more substantial costs for listing a classified on this resource. On Indeed, you can upload your resume, work experience, and education, so that you can easily apply for the positions that appeal to you.
Monster is another global job resource, though it focuses more on entry-level and intermediate-level positions. Like Indeed, Monster lets you select positions based on salary and type, letting you streamline your job search. You can apply for jobs directly through the website and you can set automated searches to alert you when jobs you may be interested in are available.
