Open mortuary positions can be located at private funeral homes, colleges and universities, the government and the military, all of which advertise job openings online through their own websites, industry sites or job posting services. Job postings include open positions for funeral directors, embalmers and sales professionals, among others.
To locate open mortuary positions at private funeral homes, the first step is to determine desired location. A search for funeral homes or mortuaries in that area will return the Web addresses of any funeral home with a website, where, according to Thanos.org, most U.S. mortuaries advertise their open positions. Job posting services such as Indeed, Monster, and CareerBuilder also advertise open mortuary positions in the category "Funeral Home Jobs." Job seekers can use these sites to find open positions around the United States.
Colleges and universities that offer degrees in mortuary science advertise their open mortuary positions on their program websites. The American Board of Funeral Service Education offers a state-by-state list of all accredited degree programs in the United States. Listings include a link to the program's website.
All branches of government and the U.S. military operate mortuary services. Open federal jobs are posted through USAJobs. Licensed embalmers and funeral directors search for jobs under the Funeral Directory Series (0050).
