Monster.com and Indeed.com both feature comprehensive search tools that allow you to specify an industry, such as assisted living care, or a job title and view a list of open positions matching the terms within a given area. Each site also allows you to further filter results by salary level or employer and read a full job description for each position. Some jobs offer an online application process, which may require you make an account through the job listing site so that you may submit a copy of your resume and the application.

ALFA.org offers an online career center for people who wish to work in senior extended care facilities, which includes a directory of open jobs at different facilities across the country. The site covers a wide range of positions, including nursing as well as administration roles.

Many hospitals and doctors are able to recommend different nursing homes from experience, though they may not have any current open positions. You may be able to submit a resume to a hiring manager at these locations in the event that a position opens up in the future.
