The Good

One stop for any job search: is a job search engine, which aggregates job postings from thousands of sources and posts them on one site. Instead of visiting five or six different online job sites, Indeed brings the power of many into the power of one. This saves you lots of time in your job search. When you apply to a job on Indeed, you will most likely be redirected to another search site to apply. This can be slightly irritating, but it's worth it for the efficiency gains from only having to search one job site.

Best keyword tool for a targeted search:

Instead of thinking up more categories for you to parse your job search criteria, Indeed simply walks you through a progression of keywords on their advanced search tab. Simply enter a phrase like, "social media marketing." You can also exclude information such as a location you don't want to work in. It's more efficient to include or exclude words, phrases, or companies rather than having a user check an industry box, a job category box, or any other random criteria. Using's method, you simply enter text of what you want to show up in your job search.

Mobile product that covers every user: provides their job search engine product in convenient format for almost all smartphones, tablets, or other Internet-enabled mobile devices. Dedicated iPhone, iPad, and Android apps can be downloaded. Indeed does not have a dedicated BlackBerry or Windows app, but its mobile-optimized website renders well on all mobile devices to let you search on the go.

The Bad

Lacks strong career resources:

What's not part of Indeed's focus is comprehensive career resources for people looking to develop or enhance their careers. Indeed does provide forums for certain sectors of the labor force as well as some salary information. Both are useful, but many job seekers benefit even more so from resume writing tools or articles on career advice and networking.
