At North Central Careers, we strive to give you the most up to date information about careers in New York City and the surrounding areas. But, we’re job seekers too, and our resources are limited. We’d love to provide you with a state of the art job search board, but that’s just not possible.

Instead, take some time to explore the links below. These are resources which have helped us in our own job search, and we feel as if it will benefit you to use them as well. As always, if you would like to point out any resources we may have missed, please feel free to contact us and let us know.

  • Indeed – Indeed is one of the best job search boards on the internet today. We’ve noticed that over the past several years, job boards like Monster and others have been more and more frequently posting sponsored listings. That is, employers are paying the sites to top list the jobs. Indeed has done well to steer clear of this habit, and you’ll find that the site is a good place to find entry level jobs.
  • Upwork – Upwork is one of the biggest freelancing platforms in existence. If you’re looking to pursue a freelancing career, or just looking for a way to make money while you search for NYC jobs, check out Upwork. Most of our writers are members of this site, and it’s a great place to find work that matches your skill set.
  • USPS Careers – The United States Postal Service is one of the best opportunities for job seekers in New England. There’s always a need for new employees, it’s relatively easy to land a job here, and the pay and benefits are good. If you want to know more about working for USPS, check out our articles on the organization, as we cover it extensively.
  • Glassdoor – Glassdoor is another job search site, but this website goes beyond just a search function. On Glassdoor, you’ll find a ton of resources to help you learn about the NYC job market. You’ll find information about average salaries and starting pay as well as tips for success in interviews. The job board is comparable to others like it, but the extra information earns Glassdoor a spot on our list of favorite sites.
  • CityData – If we’re being honest, we’re not entirely sure how this website got to be so successful. At first glance, it appears sparse and basic, but somehow it’s jam packed with information. You’ll find information on north central careers here, as well as demographic information even down to the number of robberies in a particular city. Seriously, everything. Want to know what score the health department gave a restaurant? Come here. We don’t know how they did it, but we’re glad they did.
  • Zillow – If you’re looking for a job in New Jersey, Connecticut or New York, you might be looking for a place to live, too. Zillow is our favorite site for finding both real estate for purchase and for rent. Most of the listings on the site are through real estate agents or rental companies, so there aren’t risks associated with this site like as with Craigslist or PadMapper.
  • USA.gov – Government jobs are everywhere. From the man who checks your bags at the subway to the woman who writes you a parking ticket, careers with the government are in no way uncommon. USA.gov is the official portal for finding jobs with the government, particularly at a federal level. You’ll be able to search by department, by location or both, and apply to government jobs directly through the site.
  • New York City jobs – New York City posts jobs on its own website. On the NYC official site, you can find information about jobs in the city itself. You’ll also find information about career options, benefits, professional development and how to apply. New York City internships are available as well.
  • State of New York – While most of the sites listed within our directory are related to jobs or job searches, we understand that you may also have a period of unemployment. On the State of New York’s website, you’ll find job opportunities listed with city government offices. But you’ll also find information and an online application to file for unemployment through the state. Depending on your situation, you may be eligible for a small stipend as you continue to search for work.
  • Jobs at Yale – Don’t let the website description fool you. This site will direct you to jobs at Yale, but they’re not all professors and academics. Several of our writers have had personal experience securing a job at Yale University, and the benefits and pay are first rate. Employment opportunities can be quite entry level. Yale needs dishwashers, too. Don’t be hesitant to check out this site if you’re looking to move a little farther away from the busy city of New York.
  • Resumes Planet – Most people are perfectly successful with a resume they’ve written themselves. But if you’re having trouble, you might need a little bit of help. For example, you’ve applied to many jobs but have not gotten any call backs. Or perhaps English isn’t your native language – that’s not uncommon in New York City. Resumes Planet is one of the best resume writing services on the market. Check out this or similar services if your resume needs a jump start.
  • LinkedIn – This may not be the first place you go when you’re looking for a job, but it’s grown to be a great place for networking. LinkedIn developed a bit of a reputation as being the “Facebook for Old People” at its launch, but has since refined itself. Finding a job in a big city like NYC is going to require that you know some people. Fortunately, those people don’t have to be face to face acquaintances.
  • Department of Labor – Once you’re invited for an interview, you’re going to need to know what pay to ask for. The Department of Labor lists updated average salaries for most professions. We’ve linked to New York’s DOL, but each state has one with similar information.
