When it comes to searching for open jobs in Florida, determining where to start can be overwhelming. There are hundreds of job boards, and new ones are showing up online every day. The “dirty little secret” of these sites, or at least a fact most job seekers don’t realize, is that most openings will appear on multiple sites. In fact, a single position will often be listed on hundreds of websites. Candidates can easily (and unknowingly)spend an hour on one job site applying to jobs, only to waste a second hour on another site with 80% duplicate jobs.

To save you time, we’ve identified the best job search engines in Florida. Try each site out to get a feel for which one(s) list positions that closely align with your search. Once you’ve reviewed all of the openings on that job board, move on to the next one.

Before getting to the list, be sure to sign up for our daily job alerts. Each day you’ll receive an email with links to the latest openings that match your search criteria. It’s the most efficient way to be notified of new positions across the U.S.

Here’s the short list of who we believe to be some of the best job sites in Florida (in alphabetical order):
