Google for Jobs

Google for Jobs is a product from Google that aims to help job seekers find job listings that are right for them. Google for Jobs is a job search engine that compiles listings from many different sources, including other job search engines. Instead of using a specific job search site, users can simply type a job into their Google search bar. Google then pulls up related listings. Users can then narrow their search by type of job, location, company type, date posted, and more. The site integrates the functionality of other job sites such as CareerBuilder to enable users to directly apply for open jobs.


Idealist is the premier clearinghouse for information on full-time, internship, and volunteer positions within the non-profit sector. You can target organizations by the issues that they deal with such as homelessness or the environment and search for positions by job function.

The site is very popular with employers who review the profiles of talented workers who are not necessarily actively seeking new opportunities. LinkedIn works particularly well for strong candidates conducting a passive job search where they want employers to find them.


If you want to avoid spam, scams, and duplicate job listings, LinkUp is the job site for you. LinkUp only posts jobs provided on company websites, furnishing applicants with jobs which may not be advertised on other job boards. Because the jobs come directly from company sites, you can be sure they are current openings. Job seekers are linked directly to employer websites where they can apply online.

ZipRecruiter uses innovative technology to learn about your job preferences as you apply for jobs in their extensive inventory of openings. Users then receive notices of jobs that meet their preferences. The site presents industry-leading salary information about targeted jobs and showcases trending companies, cities, and job categories.

Specialty/Niche Job Sites

Niche job websites are an excellent resource for finding job openings that aren’t always listed on other sites. There are too many great niche job websites to list them all, but here are some favorites that are especially useful for job seekers.

Craigslist Jobs

Eh? Craigslist? Yep—the much vilified online classifieds site gets lots of love among the job search websites. Why? Employers tend to shudder at the spam on big job sites. That makes Craigslist a nice homespun option to post jobs. It’s kind of like the old time print classifieds.

US Jobs:

US.jobs is the job boards arm of the National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA). It’s got an easy interface and very little spam. Great for government jobs. It also packs a Veterans Job Search for military-to-civilian job seekers.


RobertHalf is primarily a staffing agency. It also hosts one of the more popular job search engines. Their job finder website’s selection is thinner than other job websites. Some users also complain their scattershot approach may irritate potential employers.

SNAG (Formerly Snagajob):

Looking for hourly work? Snag might be your fav of all the top job sites. It specializes in non-salary positions. Their coolest feature? When they don’t find matching jobs, they provide surprisingly appropriate near-misses.


Monster job search gets a lot of dislikes among top job sites users for its high spam rate. That said, there’s a lot of good job opportunities. It’s got a great job selection. Plus, it lets you block your resume from current employers.

Employment Program provides an opportunity for individuals with disabilities to secure suitable employment. The Employment Specialists help participants learn how to do the following: identify an employment goal, properly complete an employment application, prepare a resume, prepare for an interview, utilize appropriate job search methods and, most importantly, help maintain employment. We provide follow-up services and also provide post employment services to those with significant disabilities. Our approach is to negotiate career/vocational options for vocationally disadvantaged persons. We achieve this by creating a partnership between local employers and I Can Living and Learning Center Vocational Coaches. Partnerships are formed by utilizing methods in the fields of vocational rehabilitation, counseling,
marketing and sales. The Employment Specialist is dedicated to meeting the needs of our participants who are looking for meaningful jobs in community settings and the employers who look for trained, reliable, and capable employees.

Disability discrimination occurs when an employer treats a qualified individual with a disability who is an
employee or applicant unfavorably because he/she has a disability.

According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, there are over 18.2 million veterans aged 65 and above, many of whom require long-term care. Unfortunately, navigating the intricacies of available benefits can be daunting, particularly for retired veterans in their elderly years.

To address this issue and assist senior veterans and their families, we have created a comprehensive guide that explains various VA benefits, focusing on those applicable to seniors. This guide offers valuable insights into utilizing VA benefits to meet long-term care needs.

CityHouse program

This program helps divert children from being placed in the child welfare system while the mothers seek to re-establish themselves so that once again they may care for their own children. Effective care was provided to the children apart from their mothers, while a desire to do more for their mothers was ignited.

​Over time, it became clear that if more emphasis could be placed on the family unit rather than just the children, these single mothers in need would have better opportunities to develop healthy lifestyles enabling them to provide sustainable, loving and proper care to their children. We established CityHouse in 2014 to provide long-term, transformational assistance to mothers and their children. In order to be considered for the CityHouse program, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  1. Applicants must be a current resident of Palm Beach County
  2. Applicants must be at least 21 years old
  3. Applicants must have no more than 2 children and children must be under the age of 8
  4. Applicants cannot be currently pregnant
  5. Applicants with a history of substance abuse must have at least a year of sobriety and actively working a recovery program

​If you meet the above criteria please continue with the application for the CityHouse program. Thank you.
