In part one, I showed you how to find work in other countries by doing a Google search based on a country top level domain. In this post, more of the same, umm… somewhat.
I was doing a bit of research on top level domains and I stumbled across some domains I was unfamiliar with. One of them was “.asia” which is a TLD for companies, organizations and individuals based in Asia, Australia and the Pacific. Hmm… What if I wanted to find not only jobs, but job boards specific to that region? And for the sake of demo, let’s say I wanted to restrict my search to engineering jobs. How would I do it?
Just in case my search bewilders you, this is what I am asking Google to do.
- site:asia – Search only on websites that end with the top level domain of “.asia”
- intitle:jobs – Only look for documents that have “jobs” in the title
- intitle:search – Only look for documents that have search in the title.
- And since I am looking for Engineering jobs, I added that keyword to my search.
Based on my results, I see that seekjobs.asia is pretty popular over there, along with a few others that I am too lazy to mention here. (Just do the search if you are curious.) Where did I get seekjobs.asia from? (Just in case you missed the obvious.) Look at the URL of the above search results! They are all www.seekjobs.asia/.. Get it? Good!
More fun with TLDs!
- Interested in a museum job? If so, you may want to search using museum as a TLD. (Yeah, I didn’t know it was a TLD either.)

- Are you in the travel industry? If so, you may want to consider this search.
