Finding a career path that lights you up every day can be tough. In the last few years of attempting to create my own path, I've come across several interesting resources for those looking for specific types of work. While I haven't used any of them to land my current freelance gigs, I've absolutely loved perusing the listings to see if something might fit!
Here are a few of my favorites:
For Foodies: GOOD FOOD JOBS
I've been a fan of Good Food Jobs for quite some time. The thought of centering a job search around the food industry is just genius, if you ask me. I mean, who doesn't like food?! The site just went through a full redesign and now it's even easier to find the foodie job of your dreams!
For Outdoor/Travel Enthusiasts: COOL WORKS
Have you ever wanted to work on a dude ranch? Or maybe head up the marketing department for a national park? If so, you may want to check out Cool Works. The site has been around since the 90's (Yes, the 90's. I interviewed the founder last year, if you're interested in the backstory) and offers up some really amazing opportunities for full-time travelers, seasonal workers and outdoor lovers.
For Creatives and Tech Junkies: THE MUSE
While The Muse isn't always the best for freelancers or telecommuters, there are some incredible job opportunities listed on the site in major hubs around the world. It's worth searching, if you're located within commuting distance (or are up for a move!) of said hubs and have a love for amazing, established companies and successful start-ups. If not, you may still benefit from reading their career advice section or taking a few classes.
The best part of using sites like these is that they offer a community element you just won't find on large job search sites or Craigslist. I think that makes a huge difference when you're searching for a job or gig you can love. Don't you?
So, what are your favorite freelance/job hunting resources? I'd love to hear your tips and success stories!
