Indeed.com, Monster.com and SnagAJob.com all have search engines where you can search for local jobs by job type and city, or ZIP code in the case of SnagAJob.com. These engines bring up a list of jobs around your area. Note that Indeed.com and Snagajob.com may also include nearby towns within a certain radius from your hometown. You can change this by limiting the radius mileage.

Indeed.com has further ways to define search results, including by salary estimate, job title, company name, job type, such as full or part time, and employer/recruiter. Monster.com allows the entry of several keywords to limit search results. All three websites allow users to sign up and receive email updates on specified job openings.

National or regional chains, such as Wal-Mart, often provide online job search and application services. Users can either type desired jobs in the website search engine box or fill out an online application. The website directs applicants to indicate the store of interest on the application.
