Hi, I’m Polina! Formerly, I worked as a senior digital marketing manager and now I am the marketing mentor at Pathrise. I help job-seekers prepare for their future in digital marketing through technical workshops and 1-on-1s. Check out my article with the best marketing job boards.
When you start looking for jobs, you might find yourself overwhelmed by the number of options. That is why we recommend narrowing down your search, so you can focus in on the right opportunities. Using different types of job boards based on your goals can save you valuable time and energy. Just make sure that you have an optimized marketing resume and a strong marketing portfolio before you start applying to jobs.
We rated each job board for scale (number of opportunities available) and quality (average conversion rate for each opportunity).
Best marketing job boards
General job sites
Most people start their job search with LinkedIn, often setting up their profile when they start school. But just being on the site isn’t enough for you to find a great job. You need to make sure that you optimize your LinkedIn profile and include your past experiences, projects, and links to your portfolio and the work you have done.
Their job board is robust, but you might have some difficulty if you just search “marketing” because it is such a broad search term. If you are just starting out in your career and you don’t know what types of roles are right for you, trying looking for ones that need less experience. Searching “junior marketing manager,” “marketing associate,” or “entry level” positions will help you find openings that match your background.

2. Google Jobs
Google gathers all of the job postings on the Internet and houses them on Google Jobs. All you need to do is type “marketing jobs” into your Google search bar to access it. It’s surprisingly good! They automatically add your current location to the job search, so be aware if you are looking for a job in a different city.
Scale: 2.5/3 | Quality: 2.5/3 (especially if you sort by recently posted)
Indeed is one of the largest job sites, so it is not as specialized as some of the other specific boards. However, you can narrow down your search by filtering for proximity to a city, salary estimate, job type (full-time, part-time, internship, contract, etc), company, and experience level. Once you have these in place, you should be able to navigate the list more easily.

4. Simply Hired
A conglomeration of many job postings on the web, Simply Hired is a good place to find marketing jobs because of the sheer number available. They have over 11,000 marketing positions in San Francisco alone on their site. Plus, some of the openings can be accessed through “Simply Apply” which is their one-click application process. You can also filter by full-time, part-time, internship, or contract.

If you are only interested in working at startups, AngelList is a good place to look. Candidates make a profile and then they can review positions at companies that are hiring. When they find an opening they are interested in, they “like” it. Companies also review candidates and express interest in the ones they like. This is often a good place to look if you are more interested in growth marketing or growth hacking, as you can get into startups early.

Again, if you are interested primarily in early-stage growth marketing, you can do great at young startups because you have the opportunity to really make a difference. If you are only interested in startups that have been part of Y Combinator, their job board is a good place to look.
