Explore Niche Job Boards

The HBCU Career CenterThe US economy is in recovery and employers are increasing the number of new job openings every month.  Niche job boards are an excellent way to find job openings from employers looking specifically for groups of interested applicants.

What is a Niche Job Board

Niche job boards or niche job sites are online job search websites where employers can target candidates with specific interests.  Most niche job boards lists jobs that are specific to certain industries so job seekers can increase the odds of finding a job in their industry.  Many job boards also attract employers who are targeting other groups of job seekers based on criteria such as location or diversity groups.

Why use a Niche Job Board

Job seekers can do anything on a niche job board that they can on other types of job boards.  Job applicants can search jobs, upload resumes, apply for jobs and set up job alerts.  Experts in the recruiting industry say that niche job boards help employers find a larger pool of the targeted applicants.
