Job Search

In addition to the websites of particular companies or organizations, job openings can be found on hundreds of sites online. These sites will require you to type in some of your information (name, age, work experience, area interested in working in, etc). Then, they will search the internet for employers that are looking to fill positions that require skills similar to yours. By doing this, job search websites try to create a comprehensive list of potential job openings that you would most likely want to get, along with jobs that you would have the best chance of getting. Some of these websites include:

There are sites exclusively for Iowa, like:

The site https://www.usajobs.gov/ is the official site of job opportunities for the United States government and offers a wide array of options.

In addition to job search websites, you should also check local newspapers for classifieds. A local free paper known as “Job Dig” is a short newspaper full of job postings.  Also, look around for businesses that have “help wanted” or “job opening” signs on their front windows. You can also go into a business and ask if they are hiring any time soon. If you know of a specific company that you would like to work for, often their website will include any open jobs they are hiring for at the time. Once again, an online search can provide countless resources.
