Here are my notes on finding a way to earn money that fits your desired lifestyle.

Major Job Websites

  • Indeed.com aggregates job postings

  • LinkedIn.com (now owned by Microsoft) leverages the LinkedIn social platform of profiles for top companies (who can afford it) search for candidates based on . It provides salary information.

  • Glassdoor.com has

  • AngelList.com is a meeting place for start-ups, which often hire less experienced candidates

  • Ladders.com (a subscription site)

  • Monster I ocassionally hear from, so I update my resume there.

Remote work job sites

Jobs, Companies to target?

As Yogi Berra said in his twisted way:

“If you don’t know where you want to go, you’ll end up somewhere else”.

So target employers you want instead of waiting fruitlessly or wasting your time interacting with employers you would rather not want to work at.

There are several aspects:

  • Where the company stands among employee reviews on Glassdoor.com

  • Where the company stands in their Net Promoter Score (NPS)

  • Where the company stands in their Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

  • Where the company stands in their Environmental consciousness

  • Where the company stands among competitors according to Gartner, Forrester, G2, etc.

  • Profitabity of the company versus competitors in the same industry

  • Locations of company HQ and branches

  • Benefits deductions and limits in Medical, Dental, Disability, etc.
