Legal Job Searches
I think there's little question that the United States is a litigious country. We have people suing fast food chains for making their coffee too hot and criminals suing their victims for getting injured in their victims' houses during robberies. People fake injuries after car accidents so they can sue for punitive damages.
There are more lawyers in law school than there are practicing lawyers. They are coming out in droves. New firms are opening up every single day and legal jobs are rarely in short supply. For those of you who work in legal jobs, there are a few specialty sites you should learn. These sites were created to help those looking specifically for legal related employment.
Performing Legal Job Searches
LegalEmploy.com is a highly recommended site for job seekers who either specialize in the legal field or job seekers looking to break into the legal field. This site not only provides members with access to its own job listings, it provides dozens and dozens of links to other legal related employment sites. You will have to fill in your information for each of these sites separately, though.
This site also provides users performing legal job searches with valuable job searching information. Those performing legal job searches usually need to be up to date on their legal terminology and recent rulings. LegalEmploy.com has a section devoted to giving legal job seekers job-searching suggestions. If you work in the legal field and you're looking to see what's out there, you should not limit yourself to these specialty sites. They are very powerful, but understand that most legal companies also post with the larger, more commonly known sites.

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.
