Finding a job as a web professionalAug 17 2006
If you're a web professional looking for a job, or looking to find a better job, there are some really great job boards to keep an eye on:
This is a great site to find some of the best jobs out there. Many of them are looking for Rails developers, but there are other development, design and management jobs. Plus, I think it's a good sign when a company knows about 37signals.
Certainly the best place to find a Ruby On Rails job. There's new postings nearly every day.
There's a nice variety of web professional jobs posted here, though mostly centred around development.
If you're passionate about web standards and semantic markup, there's probably a good job for you on here. I bet it would be nice to work in a company where you don't have to convince anyone about the benefits of web standards.
If you know the city you want to work in, Craigslist is a great place to look for a job. It doesn't have every job, but in my experience the companies that post on there tend to be at least a little hip. The squares probably haven't even heard of craigslist.
When looking for a job, it helps if you either live in a great location like California, New York or London, or you're willing to relocate. Who knows, though, maybe your dream job is just around the corner.
I think all of these job boards have RSS available, so you can just subscribe now and keep an eye on the results while you mull over quitting your current job.
