“It’s a tough market out there, and finding the right talent is getting tougher by the day. You’ve been looking for months but to no avail. Now what? I’ll tell you what: it’s time to widen your reach.”
The internet has made job hunting easier than ever before, with a multitude of platforms that allow you to find top notch candidates without breaking the bank. Here are 32 of my favorite free job posting sites where you can find someone new today!
Most job listing websites rely on advertising. Be cautious of free plans, such as subscriptions or one-time postings that may lead to the cost of a paid plan if you continue.
The internet has revolutionized the job market. Gone are the days of paper resumes and sending a written application to an employer, now all you need is your computer! From posting jobs on large sites like CareerBuilder or Indeed to smaller niche websites such as ZipRecruiter, there’s plenty out there for any business looking for new talent. Here we’ll explore some of our favorite spots that might be worth checking out when hiring new employees at your company.
The following sites offer job-seekers the opportunity to post their resumes for free so that employers can find them:
Indeed is the world’s largest job search engine, with over 250 million active users and top-rated by our readers. You can post jobs for free on Indeed, as well as use its applicant tracking system to keep track of candidates during your hiring process! Job seekers can apply via mobile app – many do so every day.
Although Indeed is free, you can improve visibility when you sponsor job postings at $5 per day. You may also choose to design your hiring campaign and let Indeed set an effective budget. First-time users get a whopping $50 in Job Sponsorships (aka advertising) credit!
SimplyHired is a site that aggregates job postings and resumes for free. Get your resume on Simply Hired, which uses Indeed to manage its jobs listings- it’s shared over 100 sites! You’ll receive an email notification any time someone applies – so you can hire the perfect candidate fast.
The free service applies only to certain types of positions, not all staffing agencies or job sites are eligible for their STARTER program with a monthly subscription costing at $199 per month. If you’re in need of more detailed information on what can be found through SimplyHired, consult the terms & conditions which apply universally across levels from starter (free) up to professional ($1,599/mo).
Wisestep is the only social recruiting site that lets you post as many jobs and search through as many resumes for free. It’s best when you’re looking to find passive job seekers from a specific school, industry, or college. Wisestep also allows hiring managers to sync their efforts with current social networks in order to get the word out about open positions – it supports more than 40K clients!
Hubstaff Talent is an job board alternative for both free job postings and freelancers. It’s new software tracks employee time, so it offers full-time employees a chance to post their jobs at no charge.

Google for Jobs
Posting jobs on Google for Jobs is possible if you structure the underlying HTML of your job postings so they can be indexed by Google for Jobs. Alternatively, you can post your jobs on a 3rd party site that already has access to what google searches, and will index them automatically!
Google for Jobs is a free service that uses AI and machine learning to increase job post visibility by showing jobs in Google search results. Some experience with HTML is needed if you don’t want to use 3rd party sites.
There aren’t many reviews of Google for Jobs online from the employer’s perspective, but one article on the jobs search engine warns that employers will have to invest time and money to get set up correctly.

After all, this website is one of the best places if you want to find employees that cost absolutely nothing–even though it technically isn’t marketed as such!

Upwork was created in 2014 by the founders of oDesk and Elance, two online freelance platforms that merged to create a more comprehensive service.
