All job listing sites require users to enter in a specific location in which to locate jobs, which is typically a city or ZIP code. Some sites, such as Indeed.com and GlassDoor.com, allow users to search for job listings within a country. Entering "Cook County, Illinois" into the location field in the search tool on these sites allows the user to see any job listings within the area that matches the rest of the criteria. However, as some job listings don't contain county information, it is possible that these searches may exclude jobs within Cook County or include jobs from neighboring counties.

One way to ensure that job hunters find only jobs within Cook County is to focus the search on a specific city within the county. For example, entering in Chicago, Illinois, as the city on any site significantly increases the likelihood of finding jobs in Cook County because the city is the county seat.
