Cultjobs advertises to those looking for a creative or niche position within the art, film, fashion, music, and graphic design fields. Other roles within the admin, marketing, sales, and IT field are also available for the less creatively gifted. Internships are also available.

The site is pretty bare bones and basic. There is an option to receive job alerts for specific roles via email if you’d like. Cultjobs has also compiled an FAQ section should any online issues pop up.

There is a medley of Facebook Groups out there dedicated to job advertising. Besides being convenient, applying for jobs through Facebook can result in faster and quicker results than traditional methods of job application. With thousands of people in the group, there is never a shortage of positions available for your picking.

One major downside to applying for jobs via Facebook is the potential to be scammed. Unlike other job websites, you can’t search for specific roles within each group. Those applying with their very own Facebook accounts may not receive a callback, as employers or recruiters may not choose to hire you based on what you post on your social media accounts.
 

Carousell
Various, short, and long term positions available

Carousell is known for its reputation as an online marketplace. If you’re already using Carousell to hunt for concert tickets, sneakers, or other awesome second-hand items, why not expand your search and look for jobs on the website instead?

 

A simple search for “jobs” on Carousell revealed a number of short term jobs. Salaries featured range from $8 — $20 per hour; which isn’t too bad a pay for a short term position. Unlike other job search websites, Carousell allows you to advertise your services so that other employers can find and hire you.

 

JobsDB
