A Focused Search: Engineering Job Search
October 1st, 2016
There are many different online job search engines that can be useful to an engineering job search. Some of these are general job search engines that allow the user to search by keyword and location to find that particular type of job. Others allow individuals to put in their specific information and upload resumes so that not only does the individual get a list of potential job opportunities, but employers can also access the site to find individuals that they are interested in interviewing for certain positions. Still other sites are really only job posting boards that allow employers to post job openings in various fields so that individuals can contact them about the opportunity.
Starting to Search
Engineering job searchers can start by going to a general job search engine such as CareerBuilders and enter their educational experience, work experience and resume, in addition to the location they are interested in finding a job in and any specific company that they are interested in as well. That way the individual will get weekly updates of possible job listings in the area that match their criteria, allowing them to view the jobs and contact the employer if it is something they are interested in pursuing.
There are also engineering job searches that can be done on online job search engines that are designed specifically for engineering and management types of positions, such as chemical engineering job searches. These sites do not list any other types of job listings so that the users do not have to refine their searches as much. One such site is EngineeringJobs which gives a specialized index of engineering jobs for all types of engineering positions. Another one that sounds almost identical is EngineerJobs which has both engineering and technical job listings that are available on a nation wide basis.
For those interested in chemical, mechanical, industrial, civil and electirical engineering positions, there is Engineering Central which allows users to search their database of potential engineering jobs in an engineering job search. For those who are doing an engineering job search that is focused on offshore oil, gas or construction types of engineering jobs, they can search WorldWideWorker for those types of jobs. Another one that is similar to it is Petroleum Engineer which focuses mainly on jobs related to the oil industry.
Engineering job searches that are refined to naval architects as well as power generation and ship building can be found on Ames Consultancy. For those interested in computer engineering, they can go to Clifton Johnson Associates Inc and view engineering positions that are available in hardware and software computer systems as well as programming and manufacturing types of employment opportunities.
