Human Resources Job Sites
Human resources departments have become dependant upon resume search engines. Mid to larger sized companies typically have their own human resources information systems that contain a resume search element. Recruiters and database managers usually build this piece of their in-house systems over time, uploading resumes and applications over the years. They build their own search engines by mining resumes off other online job boards.
In a corporate environment, the candidate search process often begins with a search of the company's in-house database. Again, many of these resumes were pulled from job boards like Monster.com, HotJobs.com, Job.com, and Dice.com. In fact, the IT Department often teams with the HR Department to develop programs that automatically mine resumes from these sites. If you have a resume on one of these aforementioned websites, your resume is probably in the database of a number of different corporate databases.
Human Resources Job Sites for HR Professionals
How do human resources professionals find jobs? They find them the same way other people find them. There are career sites specifically created for HR professionals. HRMjobs.com, SHRM.org, and Jobs4HR.com are among a few of the online job boards designed for people who work in human resources.
Human resources job sites are a reflection of a specialization trend occurring in the recruiting world. There are recruiting companies that purely focus on recruiting recruiters for other companies. Other recruiting companies and online job boards are even more specialized than that. Some of these recruiting firms recruit recruiters who have specific experience recruiting accountants and auditors. As time goes on, the business world will likely continue down this path of specialization.

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.
