Using Reddit for your job search

I have become active on Reddit recently. Sadly my most popular post was a video of a lave lake collapsing... not my original content. Still it has been informative and I have has several mildly popular posts of stuff on my blog. I figured it would be nice to do a post on the Job Hunting resources out on Reddit.

If you are not familiar with how it works people post articles, questions etc and then others vote them up or down and/or comment on them. Rather than have all articles all in one massive page they allow people to create subreddits which cluster posts around a specific topic. Some are hugely popular like science (600,000 readers) others have one or two readers. And be warned, some are NSFW or might be considered offensive.

Reddit - Jobs: How to get work and how to leave it. Employment, recruitment, résumés, CVs, interviews.

Reddit - ForHire: for posting open positions or looking for work

Reddit - Freelance: Articles of interest for freelancers and people who want to become one.

Reddit - Resume: A place to post resumes

Reddit - Work: intended to be about life at work, not for people offering or looking jobs. [has specific locations/countries as subreddits]

And this is just a start. There are special subreddits for Sysadmin work, CS work and AskReddit is a catchall for any general question you have. Additionally there are subreddits for Autism and Aspergers that offer additional resources for help beyond work.

Another useful site is Metareddit which attempts to corral the 75,000+ subreddits in a way that you can browse and see what some of the most popular are.
