IT Job Sites
Isn't it hard to believe that the whole concept of "IT jobs" did not exist as late as the 1970s? IT (Information Technology) professionals are some of the most sought-after people in the world. Companies have a hard time holding on to their IT staff because there's often a surplus of IT jobs and a shortage of IT professionals. Whenever the job climate has those conditions, the workers make out like bandits.
If I could go back and do it all over again, I would have learned more about computers, software, IT, database management, programming, and all the other things that go along with this field of study. It's a remarkably lucrative area to be in and the number of IT jobs available will only expand as the years go by. In fact, a friend of mine who owns an IT recruiting firm actually told me that the whole world has a shortage of IT professionals, which is why they make so much darn money.
Some Recommended IT Job Sites
Having recruited IT professionals in the past, I can tell you some of the best IT job sites currently residing on the World Wide Web. Dice.com and ComputerJobs.com are two massively popular online career networks that specialize in information technology. Thousands of companies subscribe to these sites because thousands of IT workers have their resumes posted on them.
CNet.com and ITJobs.net are also gaining popularity among recruiters. These are among a few of the IT job sites enjoying success these days. If you currently work in IT or have a desire to get an entry level job in IT, your resume should be on these sites. Using a resume posting service can be a lifesaver when it comes to entering in your information into these sites manually. Since it usually takes around an hour for each site, it may be worth the fee it takes to pay a service to post your resume to dozens of job sites at once, in order to maximize your search.

Job Hunting Sites
Job hunting sites have revolutionized the hiring and job search process. The Internet is teeming with hundreds of different job hunting websites for prospective candidates to post their resumes and examine available jobs. These sites also allow recruiters in subscribing companies to search for candidates in their resume databases. Both employees and employers have reaped the benefits of this phenomenon.
A few years ago there were only a few recommended job hunting web sites for both employees and recruiters. As the years go by, however, more and more job hunting sites are popping up, many of which offer broader coverage and more specialized services. Job seekers are inundated with recommendations and recruiters have too many places to look. Is it possible that this surge in career search sites has actually created a problem of abundance?
Too Many Job Hunting Sites?
Fear not my friends, because there are not too many job hunting web sites on the Internet. In fact, it probably won't hurt if a few more enter the market. Having more sites encourages more competition. The job boards are getting better and better every day, offering newer and better services to both companies and job seekers.
The only foreseeable problem is knowing which sites are worth using. Frankly, there are over 50 reputable job boards on the Internet and it would take you a millennium to examine all of them. For that reason I would put your faith in a resume posting service that targets the top job hunting web sites. This will save you a ton of time and frustration.
