New Hot Jobs
The new Hot Jobs website is a joint venture between Yahoo.com and HotJobs.com. This is a powerful pairing considering the reach and coverage both these sites have. Between Monster.com and Hotjobs.com, job seekers have access to over a million different job opportunities all around the globe. I suggest posting your resume on both sites before seeking out the more specialized online job boards. Despite how comprehensive these sites are, there is also a lot of competition for the posted jobs. It can pay off to also post to a number of smaller sites as well.
Like Monster.com, the new Hot Jobs website displays a number of excellent features for both job seekers and recruiters. The former can search jobs by keyword, location, and job category just like Monster.com. Thousands of recruiters all over the world love using this site to search for viable candidates because it allows them to run very specialized searches.
The New Hot Jobs for Recruiters
Corporate and contingency recruiters can search for candidates who live in specific geographic regions, who have worked with specific companies, who have specific skills and have a specific amount of professional experience. Hotjobs.com has become a staple for most corporate recruiters, headhunting firms and contingency search firms. It is a must join for anyone looking to enhance their career opportunities.
As a job seeker it's vital to know which online job boards are most frequently used by recruiters. This is how most of them generate their pools of candidates. Good recruiters also do a great deal of networking and direct sourcing, but the online career builder web sites are among their most powerful and consistently used resources. If you are using a resume posting service, it can still be a good idea to post to these sites as well.

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.
