Top 5 Job search websites

Finding a job after studying is high on the priority list for many students, and sometimes even a priority for many who are still studying.

Here is SmartStudent’s top 5 ranking of job search websites in South Africa.

5. Gumtree

Gumtree is one we are all familiar with. Great for selling stuff or finding part-time work, not so great for finding high quality jobs.


4. CareerWeb

A self-proclaimed specialist in ICT jobs, CareerWeb is a good place to go if you are looking for jobs in the IT, Engineering, Financial or Sales industry.


3. PNet

PNet is an extensive site with over 25,000 monthly adverts and is owned by the Ireland-based SAON Group.


2. Careers24

Careers24 is the job search portal of the Media24 network, which is owned by Naspers. A nice regional job search option combined with a friendly user interface gives it a 2nd place.


1. CareerJunction

SA’s biggest jobs site, ’nuff said!



Here are some additional job search sites that we couldn’t include at the time this post was published.

Gigajob South Africa


A free job search website that lets you post job postings and your resume for free.
