Career Builder Web Sites
Career builder web sites have emerged in recent years to help people develop their professional lives. They give aspiring professionals access to thousands and thousands of jobs all over the world.
Some sites cater to specific professions like accounting, forensic accounting or sales. Other sites are more general and encompass practically every career choice the business world has to offer.
Even during an economic recession, one can still find thousands of jobs available simply by perusing career builder web sites on the Internet. If you have issues with your resume and need help assembling an attractive, effective, easy-to-follow resume, many of these sites have resume building features specifically designed to help you create a powerful resume. With all the tools available online, there is little need for being unemployed for a long period of time.
Exposure Is the Key
Having worked in human resources departments for various corporations, I have an inside scoop on the hiring process. Most reputable companies subscribe to at least one or two career builder web sites. It's a cost effective way for their recruiters and hiring managers to see who's seeking employment. The more sites you can get your resume on, the better chance you will have to land the job of your dreams.
One corporation might subscribe to Monster.com and a couple of specialty career builder web sites like SalesJobs.com and ITJobs.com. Another company will have an account with HotJobs.com and CareerBank.com. Exposure is the key to finding the right job for you. Cover all your bases and get your credentials in front of as many recruiters as possible by posting your resume on as many career builder web sites as possible. If you are willing to pay a reasonable fee, there are posting services that will do the work of posting your resume with dozens of sites to speed up the process.

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.
