While VetJobs has been extremely successful assisting transitioning military, veterans and their family members find jobs, we understand that not everyone will find a job through VetJobs. Thus, as a public service VetJobs provides the following list of aggregator job sites to assist candidates in their job search.
If you are still trying to ascertain what you want to do for a career please visit the VetJobs Career Advisor and take the free career assessment.
Aggregator sites (also referred to as career search engines, job crawlers and job spiders) are a way to start your job search. As aggregator sites try to collect jobs from all types of sources, an aggregator job board can give you an idea of what types of jobs are available, but understand that frequently the job listings on aggregator sites are no longer real jobs as most aggregators do not work directly with the employer. As a result, they do not know when the job has been filled or removed.
There are two primary types of aggregator sites. Those who exclusively copy jobs from other job board sites and employer sites, and hybrid aggregator sites that copy other jobs but also sell job postings. JustJobs.com is an example of a hybrid aggregator site. The majority of jobs on hybrid sites are copied jobs from other sources and thus may be out of date or no longer a legitimate posting.
As a general rule, aggregators try to get feeds of jobs from other job boards, send out spiders to copy jobs from other job boards and employer sites or manually copy jobs from other job boards and employer sites.
Note that some aggregator sites claim to have every job posted on the internet. They do not.
The down side of aggregator sites is many of the positions listed are very old and not currently available. Since the aggregator copied the job from another site and generally do not work directly with the employers, they do not know when the job has been filled so as to remove the job. But the aggregator presents the job as though it is a current job opening available for a candidate. Niche sites generally do not have this problem as employers post the jobs and then remove the jobs when filled. Due to aggregator sites copying jobs from other sources, many job boards and employers now require a user to register or insert a code to look at postings in order to stop aggregators from copying the jobs.
In order to enhance revenues, some aggregator job sites provide listings for job boards that do not have many jobs or a sales force. Feeds are provided by the aggregator sites to job boards and others. You will note at the bottom of a page of jobs or near the posted jobs terms like “Jobs by Indeed” or “Jobs powered by SimplyHired”. In a similar manner, many aggregators put up hundreds if not thousands of “front” sites to give their copied jobs more exposure.
During the research for these lists, it was interesting to note that one of the first jobs listed on cruiseshipjobsnetwork.com was a job by SimplyHired for a Defense Intelligence Agency Missile Analyst Job, which has absolutley nothing to do with employment on a cruise ship. This is a common problem with aggregator sites. The aggregator front sites and those sites that aggregators provide the jobs may not have anything to do with the site’s title. It also tells you the site you are visiting does not actually have the jobs or the relationship with the employer, but rather the job aggregator provided the jobs, copied from other sites and may or may not be relevant to the type of job you are seeking and the job may or may not still be available. This can be very frustrating to the candidate conducting a job search.
Some aggregators create sites for every type of job imaginable and make the various sites look like separate job boards when in reality you are visiting just a different front to the same organization or database. Think of a building that has many external doors, but the building owner would have you believe that each door is an entrance to a different building. In the same manner, many aggregator sites have started parsing the jobs they copy into disciplines similar to the sites in the Niche Job Board Sites article. Several of the aggregator niche sites listed below fit this model.
It is interesting to note that aggregators now copy jobs from each other which just compounds the problem of old jobs being put forth as available jobs for candidates, when in reality the jobs were filled a long time ago. These sites are aggregators of aggregator sites.
The term caveat emptor applies when using aggregator job boards. Aggregator sites can be an excellent source in your job search to give you an idea of what is available so long as you understand the game that is being played and are willing to ferret through all the old and/or non-existant jobs that are on the aggregator site.
NOTE: The below listing of aggregator job board sites is not intended to be all encompassing or mention every site available as sites come and go fairly regularly. If you know of an aggregator site that is not listed, or if you find one of these sites is now out of business, please forward the information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Sites with $$$ charge fees to candidates.
