Computer Job Listings
When you are connected to the Internet, you are keyed into one of the most powerful career tools in the history of commerce. That's right. For all the shortcomings, the Internet has helped link the best people with the best companies. Corporations are getting more efficient and employees are taking more control over their careers.
Your computer is a reservoir of job listings. Gone are the days of faxing resumes, stuffing envelopes and scrutinizing local classified ads. Many major companies have eliminated classified ads as a means of advertising open positions. Many human resources professionals and recruiters believe that the modern employee should know how to effectively use the Internet.

For that reason, many recruiters and sourcing professionals only post open jobs on the Internet. It's almost like a test. I've been on dozens of interviews in my short life and every time the hiring manager or recruiter has asked me how I found out about the job. When they learn that I discovered the opportunity on an online job board, they instantly know that I am capable of using the Internet.
These little things make a big difference in the hiring process. In 15 years, it has been estimated that over 90 percent of all job listings will only be promoted on the Internet. It's more cost effective for companies and more convenient for job seekers. If you are currently hunting for a new job, you need to have your resume on as many computer job listings as possible. This is the key to landing the job of your dreams.

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.
