In today’s modern age, your job search is powered with AI and the internet. A job board is a type of employment website that serves job ads posted by employers. Job boards can be general or focus on a specific industry. You can filter opportunities by typing in job titles, location, and other information. You can also upload a resume and register for a quick apply. Get email alerts when new jobs appear that match your saved job searches.
