Oracle & ERP Job Sites - which are the best ones to use?

I often get e-mails from people looking for jobs and in most instances I have to tell the applicants to go through the normal channels i.e. send your CV or Resume to the myriad of job sites out there. To help job hunters I thought it would be interesting to get some feedback from readers on their experiences with job searching.

I’d be interested to know from reader’s who they think are the best sites to use if you are trying to find a job in the Oracle & ERP field. Personally, I tried using hundreds of different sites when I came to the UK but found that there were only two that were really effective in getting me to the interview stage, namely Reed and Jobserve. I heard that Monster is pretty good if you are looking for a job in the States. I’m not sure how good dedicated Oracle sites like the Oracle Job Network, OraSearch or Oracle People are. Please add your comments and also participate in the poll.

  2. Although I work in Instructional Design, my past has been in the systems arena. I have always seen a number of jobs for the states at http://www.computerjobs.com. There is a section for skill sets and under ERP you can select Oracle specifically.

  3. http://www.dice.com or www.orasearch.com

    I recently used the blaster services at orasearch and received a tremendous response.

  4. Richard,

    I voted No.  However, I did find a job, using an internet job board, as a consultant (prior to becoming a ‘captive’) with my present company.  The consulting gig began about two and a half years ago, and lasted approximately six months.  I had listed my resume on Dice and was contacted by the placing agency.

    I’ve also used Monster.  My company (an Oracle DB and apps users on Sun) uses Career Builder.  Never did find an Oracle-centric site/board at the time.

    Regards, Mike

  6. Hi, simple comment, do not limit the availability of your CV.  My present job came from Michael Page of all people.

  7. Find the institutions using ERP suite in local area. Check their preferred vendor list. These vendors get the requirement directly from the customer. Vendors in turn post the requirement on monster.com and dice.com. Often you find the same req. from different vendors for same site. That means this position is hot and going to get closed soon.

    Also networking helps a lot with staff at these institutions as JOB req is closed by references even before they are posted.

  8. Hi in the UK I have used Jobserve mainly but ensure cv is uploaded to other such as CWjobs for example.
    I wonder if many others have been encouraged to use iProfile formats to add details etc and have had any success.
    Other colleagues who come over from Aus periodically to work normally start with jobserve as it seems to provide the most coverage of jobs.
    Will have a look at some of the other specific oracle sites mentioned in above posts over next few days and post an update.

  10. Hi Chris, good luck with the search for a suitable candidate. Having lived in Brisbane for 6 years I would recommend any DBA’s out there giving it a go. Must admit I am bias to Brissie though.

    As an update to my previous post number 8, after job searching for the past 4 weeks in the UK, jobserve UK does seem to have the most number of jobs on it and normally contains the jobs featured on other sites such as CWjobs. Interested to hear from others as I am sure there are more I have missed apart from monster.com.

    Be good to put down the country the site is aimed at in the post as often there is a bias to some of the sites.

    For those looking at Aus, then the Aus seek website is a good. I have used it for quite a long time and use it now to look at roles in Aus. I have a list of others which I can post if others are interested.

    Cheers Cel

  12. I found job boards that aggregate jobs from a number of locations to be very helpful, especially when looking for a niche role like you’re discussing.
