Employment Resources

Welcome to our Employment Resources page.

While Business English Mastery is a site about the English you need for success in your business or profession, I want to recommend some resources that are not specifically related to English (although they are in English), but cover other aspects of employment -- job listings in different fields and locations, CV's and Resumés, employment interviews, and related things.

Here are some resources I have found and used with clients and for myself:

Balance Careers

"The Balance Careers makes navigating your career easy. It is home to experts who provide clear, practical advice on job searching, resume writing, salary negotiations, and other career planning topics. Whether you're looking to find a new job, advance at your current position, or explore new paths, our 20-year-strong library of more than 10,000 pieces of content will help you take your career to the next level." The Balance Careers is focused on employment in the United States, but the articles and advice are universally valuable.

"Indeed is an American worldwide employment website for job listings launched in November 2004. It is an independent subsidiary of multinational Recruit Co. Ltd. and is co-headquartered in Austin, Texas and Stamford, Connecticut, with additional offices around the world." Indeed is possibly the largest job site online. It has excellent information on CV or Resumé preparation, and career advice as well as online and in-person employment interviews. The link above is to the Canadian Indeed site, but it is easy to navigate. I recommend Indeed highly.

"Find the best international remote jobs here. Remote work brings together the best talent and employers no matter where in the world they happen to live. Find our latest remote jobs without any location stipulations below so that you can work from your beach house whether it’s in the south of France or the South Pacific."

From the review in https://ebizfacts.com/, Remote.co is a remote jobs site, is free to use, and offers more than "130 new flexible jobs each week [and] a decent number of job listings in almost every category (accounting, healthcare, marketing, etc.)" The site lacks advanced search filters and some jobs tagged as “remote” are not 100% remote. A good website for finding work-from-home jobs in many industries.

"LinkedIn is an American business and employment-oriented online service that operates via websites and mobile apps. Launched on May 5, 2003, the platform is primarily used for professional networking and career development, and allows job seekers to post their CVs and employers to post jobs. From 2015 most of the company's revenue came from selling access to information about its members to recruiters and sales professionals.

"Since December 2016, it has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Microsoft. As of September 2021, LinkedIn has 774+ million registered members from over 200 countries and territories. LinkedIn allows members (both workers and employers) to create profiles and connect with each other in an online social network which may represent real-world professional relationships. Members can invite anyone (whether an existing member or not) to become a connection. LinkedIn can also be used to organize offline events, join groups, write articles, publish job postings, post photos and videos, and more." [en.wikipedia.org]

Now, here's an important question: Can Non-US Citizens Work for US Companies and Live Abroad as Digital Nomads? Yes, they can. According to Deel.com, non-US citizens can work remotely for a US company from their home country or anywhere in the world as long as they have consent from their employer, follow local laws regarding visas, and file taxes with their country of tax residence. Non-US citizens who work for US companies in their own country or in a third country do not pay taxes in the United States.
The sites listed above are all legitimate, but individual job postings may not be legitimate. This article lists 10 signs a job posting may be a scam. Please be careful.
