Do Businesses Use Job Sites to Find Bookkeepers?
IN A WORD, YES. As mentioned in an earlier post, job boards offer the best-quality jobs for people in professions that translate to any industry; and this includes bookkeeping and accounting jobs.
And as another post showed, there’s a vast number of bookkeeping jobs posted to those sites every day, be it for casual, part-time or full time work.
Unless the business is looking for a bookkeeper to work for them on a one-off basis or very infrequently, then they may post a task to a gig site like Freelancer.com or Airtasker. However, the majority of good quality, part-time and casual bookkeeping jobs will be found on the major job sites.
Not all good quality job sites are pay-to-list
Seek can charge the fees it does, because it delivers candidates. That fact is indisputable. If it were, the company wouldn’t have turned over $1.3 billion in revenue in the 2017 financial year.
In an increasingly crowded market — its core business now competes with LinkedIn and Indeed — it would have been disrupted by an insurgent already. (As was the case for Monster, which at its peak in 2000 was the largest job board in the U.S., worth $8 billion U.S.; in 2016, after being disrupted by LinkedIn and Indeed, it was sold at fire sale prices to staffing company Randstad for $429 million U.S.)
But other good quality job sites, such as Jora, a subsidiary of Seek, and Indeed let employers post basic listings on their sites for free. (Indeed operates a freemium business model, which means basic listings are free, but premium listings attract a fee-per-click.)
Use a few different sites and networks
There are many good jobs out there for people trained in bookkeeping and accounting. The key to finding good work is to sign up to a couple of job sites (Seek and one of the aggregators — Indeed, say), and make sure you keep your LinkedIn profile current and set to allow recruiters to reach out with opportunities.
This is where you’ll find the best jobs — some of which will be unique to each site, while others will appear across all of them. And the more you use the sites — either to search for jobs or to apply to them — the better the recommendations will be in the future.
