The 9 Best Places to Post and Find Instructional Design Jobs
Having trouble landing an ID job? Or is it difficult to find the right candidate? You might be looking in the wrong places. We’ve compiled a list of 9 options for you to check out (click on the headlines for more info):
iSpring Community Forum. There’s a category in our community where you can post and find ID positions for free. Perfect for finding instructional designers who use iSpring Suite and landing projects that require our authoring tool. By the way, we’re hiring freelance instructional designers.
Instructional Design Central (IDC). If instructional design had a capital, this would be it. You can always find dozens of ID jobs there and post your own.
ATD Job Bank. This is a famous community of eLearning specialists. Hundreds of job openings. Free resume reviews. Relevant educational courses for paid membership. Vacancy posting is also available.
Learning Guild. Here’s another go-to website for instructional designers where ID job openings are posted on a regular basis. Find or post vacancies and be sure to find a great candidate or an employer.
eLearning Industry. This is one of the most popular and respected eLearning websites in the world. You can find any ID and other eLearning-related job openings there. If you want to post a vacancy, click here – this is a paid service, but it is absolutely worth it.
Fiverr. This is a freelance platform with multiple ID offerings. It’s perfect for finding candidates: the platform shows their professional level, rating, prices, reviews, and lets you connect with them easily. However, aspiring freelancers often have to work at minimal rates in order to get more positive reviews – without them, they don’t stand a chance against their peers who’ve been using Fiverr for years.
Upwork. This is one of the most popular freelance platforms in the world. You can both post and find ID jobs there. There are lots of options, but few of them are highly paid. That’s why companies really like it, while many IDs don’t and use it only to start out or earn some extra money. You should also take into account that Upwork’s commission is one of the highest. Alternatives: Freelancer, Brybe, Guru
Glassdoor. An extremely popular platform for finding full-time jobs. One great advantage of this website is that candidates can see the reviews on companies from current or former employees – this saves you from applying for companies where you will not be appreciated or respected.
You can also find and post jobs on LinkedIn and in instructional design groups on social media, like Facebook and Reddit. Networking is also useful – go to eLearning conferences to meet candidates and potential employers in real life.
