Among the fastest-growing occupations today are nurse practitioners, data scientists, statisticians and information security analysts, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. These professions are expected to grow dramatically in the next decade, meaning that finding work in these fields should be fairly easy.

But what if you’re a creative soul who doesn’t want a job in healthcare or science? Well, luckily, there are still plenty of opportunities you can pursue — you may just have to search a little bit more for them.

In this article, we’ll share some of the most popular job boards for those dreaming of kick-starting or advancing their creative career!

1. Behance


Owned by Adobe, Behance is an online network that allows creatives to showcase their work. Although you may have heard or used Behance before, you may be less familiar with their dedicated creative jobs page that features hundreds of jobs for you to explore.

The job search page allows you to filter by location and field, including architecture, branding, fashion, industrial design, UI/UX design, and more. Besides freelance gigs, you can also choose to display full-time jobs or run your own search with your desired keywords.

2. Creativepool


Creativepool is an online network connecting talented professionals with brands and agencies.

Its jobs page allows you to search for permanent or freelance work in dozens of locations around the world, including the UK, Canada, Australia and the US. There are positions for you to browse in numerous creative fields including publishing, photography, marketing, media, and many more related industries.

Given its breadth of options, it can be the perfect platform to use if you’re a digital nomad or like the idea of relocating for work.

3. Dribbble


Dribbble is one of the most popular job boards for graphic designers, letting you explore remote opportunities as well as contract-based and full-time ones in your area.

Its user-friendly layout lets you filter jobs quickly, at the push of a mouse button, so you can view the most relevant ones to your specialty, whether that’s illustration, web design, animation or something else.

Since its launch in 2009, Dribbble has grown its active user base to millions, meaning you can trust that you’ll find the most recent and relevant design gigs should you give it a go.

4. Coroflot


Coroflot is another job board dedicated to designers specifically. It’s easy to navigate, letting you search for jobs depending on your specialty, location and seniority level. The latter spans from interns to executives, meaning that it can help you locate the ideal opportunity for you, whether you’re just getting started or have years of experience under your belt.

Another great feature on Coroflot is the Design Salary Guide, a page dedicated to gathering salary data (anonymously) so that designers from different disciplines can determine whether their job offer or current compensation is fair and close to a verified average.

5. Art Jobs

Art Jobs

Art Jobs lets you view active job listings in a number of fields, from education and fundraising to publishing, crafts and performing arts. The results can be filtered by state, although you’ll also find opportunities outside of the US, like in the UK and EU.

With nearly 1 million page views each month and thousands of job listings posted (as well as open calls for artists), Art Jobs connects creatives with the companies and organizations that need them.

6. Jobspresso


Jobspresso is a job board dedicated to remote creative jobs in particular. If you prefer to work from home or would like to travel and work, you may want to bookmark this one and visit it often!

You can search for job listings using keywords or by category (contract, freelance, part- or full-time, and internship). Some of the fields you can find work in are marketing, writing and editing, DevOps, and sales.

If you’re concerned about fake job postings and scams, Jobspresso’s team takes extra care to research each employer so that only high-quality job listings appear on the site!

7. Creatively


Creatively advertises job postings in a range of fields like apparel and fashion, arts and entertainment, consumer goods, media, education, and technology. It has something for creatives of all experience levels, from students looking for internships to freelancers and professionals looking for full-time work.

The website also lets you create a portfolio and showcase your work to potential employers. Then there is also the CreativelyMade page where creatives can submit their work and then a voting takes place to indicate a winner for best design each week.


AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts)

AIGA (the American Institute of Graphic Arts) is an organization for all things design. Its job board lets you browse freelance and permanent roles as well as internships and pro bono projects you can undertake.

Its simple layout lets you filter job openings by keyword, seniority or location, while also giving you the option to browse for remote jobs only.

You can also sign up for email job alerts by creating an account so that you never miss a new opportunity.

9. Design Observer

Design Observer

Design Observer is a website dedicated to a number of design-related topics, ranging from graphic design to urbanism and social innovation. Besides its job board, the website also has pages for industry-related podcasts you can check out, as well as books and other materials that can keep you entertained and informed.

A little more on the job board, however: it lets you filter by keyword, location and seniority, with each result carrying a date next to it so you can conveniently see how old a job listing is without having to load it in a new page.

10. Media Bistro

Media Bistro

Media Bistro is a job search platform for professionals working in fields such as marketing and communications, writing and editing, and production. It lets you easily filter for the jobs that interest you by field, seniority or duration (contract, part- or full-time, internship or freelance). You can also create job alerts for when employers post jobs that match your search criteria.

The website also features a resources page where you can access online courses and tools that can help you advance your career.

Final thoughts

Connecting with potential employers and finding creative job openings can be somewhat harder for the artistic type compared to the STEM or healthcare professional. Using dedicated job boards, however, can make the process easier and get your portfolio or application in front of the right people at the right time.

It’s also just as important to diversify during your job search, using different means of finding out about new jobs. A combination of connecting with prospective employers on social media, devoting more time to networking and making use of your alumni association, for example, can help you find work faster.
