What are Niche Job Boards

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 (Philly Jobs, Chicago Jobs), professional interests (Nursing Jobs, Engineering Jobs, Farming Jobs, Teaching Jobs) or diversity groups such as Blacks, Latinx, Asians or Women. Certain niche job boards help all ethnic minority groups.
