Almost all of us have been, at some point in our lives, active job seekers… a task that can be frustrating if we do not know how to take advantage of the resources that we have. For some time now, the Internet has been the most used means of looking for employment, and that forces us to be aware of which websites are a reference for jobseekers, or which ones allow us to search for offers simultaneously on several portals.
For this reason, from Genbeta, we have wanted to offer you a small compilation of websites that will be useful for Spanish job seekers can have access to the best job offers available. Good luck in the search!
InfoJobs has been active for 22 years, and is the most popular job search page in Spain. It has special sections for both freelance professionals and managerss, adapted to the needs of both groups.
It offers a private area from which we can manage job applications, upload one or more resumes (and presentation letters), edit your profile and link to your web and social media information. Based on our data, select numerous job offers that you will send us by email.
InfoJobs also has a mobile application that was the first to exceed one million active users per month In our country.
Owned by the Vocente group, InfoEmpleo is another of the classics in the field of job portals. It has different sections for finding the first job (for students and recent graduates) and for those looking for international job offers.
In addition, its ‘Training’ section directs another of the wes of its group, the metasearch for courses and official titles AvanzaEnTuCarrera.com.
Unlike the rest of the pages of this article, Empléate is an employment portal managed by the public authorities, specifically by the SEPE (Public State Employment Service). In addition to public job offers (from the central and regional governments), it also welcomes offers from the 37,256 registered companies.
An assistant stands out in the portal to know not only what offers might interest us, but also what contracts have been made from profiles similar to ours in the area where we want to work.
In theory, LinkedIn It is not a job portal, but a social network that allows professionals of all to expand their network of contacts. In practice, it is also an essential reference for every professional you are looking for a job, as many companies look there for potential candidates for the positions they are looking to fill. In fact, our LinkedIn profile will sometimes be one of the best CVs we can upload to network.
But, in addition, LinkedIn offers two tools to help us generate traditional resumes: ‘Resume Assistant’ will help us create the content and ‘Ceev’ to give it a more professional look.
On the other hand, the company pages within LinkedIn (which we can follow, to be the first to know about the news regarding vacancies) will show us which job offers they keep active, in addition to suggesting other offers from similar companies. If we have a Premium account, we can contact the recruiter directly, even if it is not our contact.
Monster.es is a joint initiative of the newspaper El País and the famous American job portal Monster.com. Among the aspects that distinguish it from its competition, we find the ability to save offers of employment that most attract our attention, as well as those jobs to which we apply. The web provides us with information about those companies that are interested in us, in addition to salary information and professional advice.
Indeed is one of the biggest job sites – they boast of landing more contracts than LinkedIn and Monster combined. Not so much because it is the one in which the most offers are published, but because be a meta search engine that groups job offers from other portals.
Still, it also gives us the option to upload a resume and generate a custom link at the same, which we can share with potential employers. It also provides a mail-in bidding service.
Indeed was also known as ‘the Google of jobs’ until, well, Google launched its own meta search engine for job offers: ‘Google Jobs’, which allows you to search dozens of portals (and even corporate Facebook fanpages) from the same interface: that of Google’s own web search engine.
You just have to write, for example, “Receptionist in Madrid” and you can see a lot of offers, which you can then go to. filtering by location, publication date, contract type and even bidding company.
Some job portals focus on very specific sectors. Domestika, for example, is a reference in the field of illustration, design, animation, photography and related fields. Many Spanish companies publish their offers directly on this portal, which also offers its users the possibility of host your project portfolios, as well as subscribing to complete training video courses on all these topics.
