It’s that time of year again, and hopefully you already have a summer job or internship in the PR Industry. But if you don’t, it’s still not too late. Here are some of the job search engines that I’ve come across which are very fruitful. Remember to spend time creating your profile on each site, and make sure your information is consistent with your resume. Some sites will pick up information from your resume and fill out the forms automatically. Don’t leave it to chance. Each resume is structured differently, and you will need to edit the forms once they are automatically filled out.

The boards here are from Canada, The UK, and the United States.

International Association of Business Communicators

IABC has some great job listings. In addition to viewing job postings, you can create personal job alerts and post an anonymous resume. In addition to PR, you can find other communication jobs.

PR Week Jobs

This is a UK based job board. This is a cool service because you can shortlist the jobs that you like, and then apply for them. Your public profile is highly customizable to include your salary expectations, and employers can download your profile in .doc, .docx, and .pdf formats.

Brand Republic Jobs

I haven’t registered on the board just yet, but I came across this board and it’s very versatile. It allows you to narrow your job search through multiple criteria, and that definitely helps. If someone’s already using this, please feel free to comment about your experience below.

Media Job Search Canada

This site isn’t really a board where you can apply directly, but many companies list their jobs here and ask you to go to their site to apply, with a mention of MJSC in your application. You can get all types of gigs here in the media and communications field.

NYC PR Girls

You should also check out the NYC PR Girl’s job hunting suggestions.

Other Boards

Remember, many companies have their own job boards. Check out Edelman, Ruder Finn, Burson Marsteller, and of course your university’s career placement services.

    Thanks for the helpful information, Tabish. Do you know any good sites that cater specifically to virtual internships in the communication industry?

      No problem, buddy, thanks for the comment! I’m not sure about virtual internships. Let me post on Twitter and see if anyone knows of anything. I can then add that to the list if anything comes up 🙂

    Apologies for the shameless plug, but you might want to also include MJM (moves, jobs and mandates) from Communicate magazine.

      Haha, plug accepted. Do you want to send me a two-line excerpt about the job board so I can include it?
