Megasites for Job Hunting

Megasites attempt to compile all of the best sites in a subject area. Please use these employment megasites to access the majority of the career sites and job listings on the Internet. Two of the sites on this list are highlighted (The Riley Guide and WNJPIN) because they are two of the best megasites for your employment search, but all of the megasites include helpful information. Be aware that career sites will be duplicated within the megasites. Consider the source of a site since the source may determine the focus of the information. Sites created at colleges or universities may be directed toward the needs of students, but may also have helpful information for any job searcher.


This site from the National Association of Colleges and Employers is a springboard to career- and job-related sites that career services professionals from around the world have found helpful in working with college students and alumni. It includes: job listings, job search and industry information, professional associations, career assessment tools, career choice information, and more.

O*Net Online

This site from the U.S. Department of Labor was created for the general public-to provide broad access to the O*NET database of occupational information on over 950 occupations. The O*NET database includes information on skills, abilities, knowledges, work activities, and interests associated with occupations. This information can be used to facilitate career exploration, vocational counseling, and a variety of human resources functions, such as developing job orders and position descriptions and aligning training with current workplace needs. Each occupational title and code is based on the most current version (1999) of the Standard Occupational Classification system and the Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT).
