From worldwide online job search websites to local job matching services like Louisiana Job Connection and more – today’s technology and resources make it easier to find the right job for you.

Online Job Search Sites – This has become one of the most popular and effective ways to find a job in recent years. A simple online search will lead you to job searching platforms and career websites such as Indeed, Monster, CareerBuilder, ZipRecruiter, Glassdoor and many more. By utilizing these sites you can quickly find job postings that fit the position you’re looking for – including local jobs or those in other states or countries.

Local Job Matching Services – Two of the biggest and most popular job matching services in Louisiana are LAWorks and Louisiana Job Connection. LAWorks is a service of the Louisiana Workforce Commission and Louisiana Job Connection is a service of Louisiana Economic Development. Both of these are great resources if you want to find a job in Louisiana.

Job Fairs – Job fairs are a more traditional way to find work, but this can still be an effective way to find a great job. Job fairs are advertised locally ahead of time and will make a point of listing the companies participating – so keep an eye out for opportunities of interest to you.
