Online Employment Opportunities
The Internet has transformed the way in which people find new jobs. It has transformed how companies find the right employees and executives. It has also helped make the process quicker and less expensive, two things companies love to hear. Online job opportunities abound. Job seekers have more tools and more power today than they ever had before.
I was laid off from a corporate job during one of our country's worst economic recessions. All over the world corporations were laying off millions of people, forced to cut costs to stay above water. The easiest way for a company to save money is to lay off or terminate employees. Overnight, organizations can save millions and millions of dollars by letting go of their biggest financial liability--the employees.
Online Employment Opportunities Saved Me
Those people who were not acquainted with the Internet and the hundreds of online job boards had a tough time finding employment. Many settled for jobs they were overqualified for because they were desperate to pay the bills. I can appreciate that. I, however, was able to find a job that paid just as well as my previous job and had more potential for upward mobility.
During a recession, I managed to find a job that was a step up for me. Moreover, I worked in human resources, which is typically one of the toughest areas in which to find a job during an economic recession. How did I do this? I employed the services of a resume posting service which blasted my resume to over 70 job boards. In addition, I combed the career builder websites every day looking for new postings in my field. I had a great job within three weeks of being laid off.

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.
