Searching for Jobs Using Individual Company Websites
An important source of information about the availability of positions within a company, is the company itself. Do your research to identify companies within your area (or outside of your area, for remote positions), and visit their official websites. Many companies post their available positions on their websites, rather than pay to post them on the websites of outside companies. Generally there is a link from the company home page, that will take you to a listing of their available positions. The link is often indicated by words such as "Career", "Jobs", or "Work for Us".
To locate the official website for a company:
Search the company's name on your favorite search engine (Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.).
Look on any promotional or informational material you might have from the company, that lists their website address.
Call the business and simply ask for their website URL.
