As one of the leading general job boards out there, Glassdoor always has a steady stream of sales job listings. The site enables users to upload resumes, apply to jobs, and set up job alerts. But Glassdoor’s real benefit is in the wealth of information it provides about working at the company, including ratings of the company and executive leadership.
Even if you don’t plan on using Glassdoor to apply to jobs, it’s always useful to look up companies during the job search process. Read the reviews to try and get a sense of whether you’d be a good cultural fit, and pay particular attention to comments from sales professionals.

LinkedIn is the primary professional networking site, so a presence there is a must for jobseekers. Companies frequently post job openings to the LinkedIn job boards, so it’s always worth a look. Applicants can apply to jobs directly on LinkedIn. One of the benefits of this method is that LinkedIn will tell you if there’s anyone in your network who has a connection with companies you’re interested in. You can also use the network to introduce yourself to potential contacts.
It’s likely that recruiters and hiring managers will take a look at your LinkedIn profile even if you apply through another method, so make sure that it’s in good shape before you start applying to jobs.
