Find Available Jobs
For years, most people began their job searches by looking at the classified ads in the local newspaper. Today they usually go online. Click here for some advice on how to look for jobs online — and how to avoid some common mistakes.
But here's the most important advice: Don't rely completely on websites to find job opportunities. Talk about your job search with other people, including family, friends, people you went to school with, people you used to work with — anyone who might know about jobs that are available, or that might be about to become available.
This is called networking. It will increase your chances of finding a job sooner rather than later. You may be surprised at how many people can give you good tips, and how happy they are to do it.
Here are some links to the websites of employers located in and around Pitt County. Each listing includes the community in which most of the employer's jobs are located, the employer's product or service, and the approximate number of employees.
Most of the links below will take you directly to job postings. For employers that do not recruit through their websites, the links will take you to the employers' home pages.
P.S. Please keep in mind that links are often changed. If a link no longer leads to an employer's website, please let us know!

Most multi-employer websites copy their job postings from employer websites. Most of them also allow employers to post job openings directly. That's why you may see the same job listed on several different multi-employer sites, or even several times on the same site. Since looking at several multi-employer sites probably won't help you find many more good job postings than looking at just a few sites, you may want to pick a few that you like and then visit them regularly.
Most multi-employer sites allow you to search by location (zip code, city, county, or region) and by the type of job that interests you. Since jobs can be classified in many different ways, you will run less chance of missing a good job opening if you search only by location.
Also, a multi-employer site might not take down a job posting as soon as it has been closed by the employer. As a first step in applying for a job posting that you find on a multi-employer site, check with the employer to make sure the job is still open.
In addition to job listings, many multi-employer sites include advice and resources for job seekers. Some of this is good, and some isn't.
Please be aware that it is generally a bad idea to sign up for “email job alerts.” These will often flood your email in-box with job postings that aren’t related to your interests or skills. And important emails from employers might get lost in the jumble.
Finally, remember to be careful of scams!

Better Greenville Jobs: A commercial site that includes job postings from in and near the Greenville area.
Craigslist: This portion of the website includes job postings from all over eastern North Carolina. Craigslist can be especially helpful for finding jobs with small employers who may not post their job openings elsewhere. But be careful: Craigslist contains many scams. If a job posting is unclear about what type of work is involved, or if it seems too good to be true, then watch out!
Linked In: This website may be especially helpful for people looking for professional or other white-collar jobs. Users are required to register and create a profile before starting a job search. Linked In also has features that can help users network.
