General job sites
Most people start their job search with LinkedIn, often setting up their profile when they start school. But just having a profile isn’t enough for you to find a great job. You need to make sure that it is as strong as it can be and includes your past experiences, projects, and links to your portfolio and the work you have done.
Their job board is robust, but you might find some difficulty if you search “marketing” because it is such a broad search term. If you are just starting out in your career and you don’t know what types of roles you’re interested in, trying looking for ones that have less experience required. Searching “junior marketing manager,” “marketing associate,” or adding “entry level” to your searches will help you find positions that match your background.

Indeed is one of the largest job sites, so it is not as specialized as some of the other specific boards.

If the sheer numbers and options overwhelm you, though, consider checking out Indeed Prime.
