Review for Job Searchers

LinkUp is a job search engine that uses a unique method of uncovering jobs often hidden from other search engines. It may seem simple, but LinkUp does this by listing the current job postings on company websites from around the country. They monitor thousands of small, mid-sized, and large company career sections in order to connect applicants with jobs.

As a result, the listings are from real companies, there are no duplicates because they are only pulled from the direct company source, and they are always current because they update when the company website does.

Using LinkUp to Job Search

Job applicants can search jobs by title, keywords, company name, city, state, or zip code. The advanced search includes specific titles, exact phrasing and words to omit, as well as the length of time the job has been listed. Additionally, users can filter listings by company, job tags, city or distance.

It’s easy to sign up for email notifications of jobs as well. You can set the types of jobs and the location that you would like updates on, and you’ll get a list as new jobs that fit your criteria are posted.

LinkUp Features

LinkUp is designed to be easy to use so that you can find relevant jobs, and it directs you to the company to submit your application, as opposed to some other search engines where you apply through their site. You can choose to connect your LinkUp account to your accounts with Facebook, LinkedIn, Yahoo, Google+, and Twitter as well.

The “Saved Jobs” feature allows you to save jobs of interest to review at a later time, and notifies you when the employer closes the position.

Your “Search History” is easily accessible, which can help you refine your terms to attract listings of positions of interest.

LinkUp also offers mobile apps for Android, iPhone and iPad.

Resources for Employers

LinkUp has a section geared to employers looking to maximize their visibility. They offer several options, such as Pay-per-click ads, Pay-to-post, and Social recruitment through Facebook and Twitter.

Businesses can also take advantage of data services, webinars and events to better advertise themselves and their career opportunities.

LinkUp International

LinkUp also offers international job searching through their websites LinkUp Canada, and LinkUp United Kingdom which list jobs throughout Canada and the UK, including England, Scotland and Ireland. The websites allow you to search for job postings the same way as the US version, with just as many options.

More Top Job Search Engines
When you begin your job search, it’s a good idea to research the search engines available. You’ll want to select a few that you find to be the most comfortable for you to use, and which seem to do a good job of showing you the types of jobs you are seeking. There are also niche job websites, which you might prefer to use if you have a very specific type of job you are looking for.
