Updated May 16, 2018

To find the people that best fit their needs, many employers prefer to post positions on sites devoted to their areas, often called niche sites. A niche site in your field is a wonderful thing to discover.

And, if you’re lucky, there may be a local niche site for you. Here are some New England and Massachusetts sites that list jobs in particular fields. Are you aware of any others? Please let me know!

    Great list! Thank you for all the time putting this together and for sharing. Very generous of you!

    This is a good list. For education, you need to add SchoolSpring (seekers need to put in geographical search terms), and the other is the Mass Superintendents website jobs.massupt.org.
    Separate from the business category, are communications and marketing. IABC Boston (International Association of Business Communicators) and APR (American Public Relations Society) have regional job boards. Finally, Ned Lundquist, communicator extraordinaire, has a great job list: “Job of the Week.” He also has a blog called “Nedworking” on Topica. You can find him on Facebook as well. I hope this helps.
