Monster.com Job Boards
Monster.com is perhaps the most powerful online global careers network on the Internet and it's the world's number one hiring management resource. It has sites in 23 countries around the world. With that kind of coverage, one would think that it would cost something to put a resume on Monster.com. That is not the case. You can post your resume on this website for free and give thousands of national and multinational companies access to your credentials.
Monster is really one of the pioneers in the recruiting industry. This company paved the way for hundreds and hundreds of other online career networks. As the years go by, the Monster job boards continue to grow, offering enhanced services to both job seekers and recruiters. As a result, there have been many other companies to go the same route, resulting in a myriad of online job databases.
Features on Monster Job Boards
Most employees rarely receive training on how to get a job. In fact, having attending a "tier one" university, I had no idea how to interview when I graduated from college. I was given a few tips, but none of them really helped me. Monster.com, however, offers resume tips, interviewing tips, and networking tips.
One of the most difficult parts of an interview is the salary discussion. This is a touchy area that can either land you the job or leave you wondering what you did wrong. Monster.com has a section for job seekers that helps them accurately calculate their fair market value so they know what salary figures are fair. This section also provides negotiation tips and information on benefits. You can also use these tips to advance your search on other 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.
