When I first started job hunting on the Internet, I would spend countlesshours searching for anything and everything. I would search one site, thenjump to another, and search some more. One of the most frustrating thingsabout job searching on the Internet is that most of the same job postingsare duplicated across hundreds of job search sites! It’s like having threehundred Houston Chronicles from the same day on your desk!— Why so many? —Monster.com (http://www.monster.com) and Headhunter.net(http://www.headhunter.net) contain numerous newly posted job opportunities.Out of those opportunities, Siteswise
the webmasters of a hundred or so telecommutingsites search for work-at-home jobs and post those jobs on their sites. Outof those jobs, numerous career-specific site webmasters extract work-at-homejobs in their career categories. In a matter of minutes, one job isduplicated hundreds of times on various sites.Another place to search for opportunities is in the USENET newsgroups. Thenewsgroups have hundreds of jobs posted from various recruiters andemployers. But, many of the smaller posting sites go to the USENET and postthose jobs on their sites as well. Again, the same job posting isduplicated numerous times.You could spend an entire week hunting for jobs and see the same job posted60 times on 100 sites!— I’m over here! —Numerous companies don’t post their jobs because they don’t want to beinundated by unqualified resume posters. Instead, these companies searchfor resumes on various sites. To make sure that you’re seen, post yourresume on several job sites and update it often!
