Chicago Job Listing Sites from Major and Alternative Media Sources
- Chicago Tribune CareerBuilder
What was once the paper granddaddy of want ads has seen its listings picked off by online competitors over the years, but its online site is still a prime spot for identifying Chicago job openings. CareerBuilder also offers an excellent resource center for job hunters.
- Chicago Sun-Times ChicagoJobs.com
The Chicago Sun-Times job listings are allied with smaller, area newspapers, which offer opportunities across Chicago and an 11 county area.
- Chicago Job Listings from the New York Times and more via Indeed.com
About.com's job search site with Chicago job listings from The New York Times and other media outlets.
- Wall Street Journal - CareerJournal Chicago
The WSJ's complete Chicago job listings.
- Craigslist - Chicago Jobs
A go-to site for job hunters in the Chicago area.
- Gapers Block - Jobs
Steady stream of job postings from the Chicago Job Board Network via this Chicago online web publication.
- Illinois WorkNet Job Search Tool
I like this site, which allows you to search statewide and tends to have a wide range of what seem to be quality jobs.
- About.com Job Searching
Alison Doyle is About.com's uber-popular Guide to Job Search and with good reason. Her excellent, continually-updated site for hunting down the right job is sure to be of help to you.
- Chicago Reader Classified Ads – Jobs
The search engine on this job site is so clunky that I hesitate to even refer you to it. (Who could possibly want a “random sort” option on a job site?) But, the Reader is still known as a good source for jobs, primarily on the north side, so this list could not be considered complete without it.
