Mashallah it seems like the Ummah has a site for just about anything.
From blogs, to matrimonial sites to job sites, you name it.
Oh the picture on the right was the only suitable picture I could find for the post, of course many Muslims use those job sites also. I personally use monster and love it.
Recently I’m starting to see an emergence of job sites catered towards the Muslim demographic, of course you can be a non Muslim and still take advantage of the benefits these sites provide and vise versa.
It’s not like you say the shahada (testimony of faith) then submit your resume, haha. Yea so no need to hate, any service or site for niche market always works, so before you start hating on muslims, fall back.
So let’s take a look at some of the job sites that have started and are getting popular, I wanted to just break down rates for employers and job seekers. Other services which these specific sites offer is resume writing and editing services.
- Ummahjobs.com (200,000 Alexa Ranking) Definitely is the best. You might be wondering why? Well First of all the main benefit of using this site is posting a job is 100% free unlike other job sites, I mean in a recession why would you want an employer to pay for a job post or in that case which job seeker can afford it? haha. That’s the main benefit, their are many more, peep it below.
- Posting is easy and you can direct job seekers to apply how you want.
- Jobs are posted immediately.
- Edit or delete your jobs via your account.
- Have new resumes sent to you. Choose criteria for sending.
- Keep track of how many times your job posting ad is viewed
- Maximum exposure: Jobs from our site get cross-posted to several other sites automatically.
- Premium employers can upgrade their job posts to “Premium” for better visibility.

2. Maghribjobs.com ( 13,000,000 Alexa Ranking )
- At first I thought this was affiliated with Al Magrib Institute, but Maghrib is spelled differently, ha.
- You can subscribe to an RSS Feed to updated Job Postings, that’s real convenient.
- Posting a job for 35 days cost $50, that’s somewhere around a $1.50 a day, personally I think they should take off that fee. Alot of websites think by charging they can get quick revenue, the bottom line is the more free services you have, the more visitors you attract. More visitors means quicker monetizing through different methods. I agree to have a featured job post where an employer can post on the front page should have a charge, but you have to bait employers and job seekers in first.
- Magrib jobs does come up in the top five in google, so their seo is on point.
- They don’t have a services page, which is dissapointing, ummahjobs is far more professional in that sense.
3. gulfjobsites.com ( 70,000 Alexa)
- Offers readers Multiple Languages to use the site
- Free Alert Service – updates on latests jobs, career information
- Has a blog gulfjobsites.com/blog which teachers readers how to use the site, job hunting advice, interview tips, Job Market trends.

Let’s take a look at a screenshot of which sites show up in search results for ” Muslim Jobs ” and ” Islamic Jobs”. Also look at the right side bar for Adwords Campaigns and Muslim job sites that are looking for conversions.
Notice for ” Islamic Jobs “, Ummahjobs come up #1
