For a while, conducting a job search online was becoming very difficult for you, the job seeker, as every job site tried to get your attention.
However, as the job site landscape continued to change, there were two significant changes that offered enormous benefit to jobseekers.
The first one was ongoing consolidation as job web sites tried to extend their reach and capture more of the market.
The largest example of this was in August 2010 when Monster acquired Yahoo HotJobs! which, according to comScore (in April 2010), meant that the combined presence of Monster and HotJobs was expected to reach more than 130 million unique visitors.
Employers really must post jobs on the Monster-HotJobs site or they will miss a large pool of potential candidates. From your perspective, as a jobseeker, it means that you need to visit
as there are now millions of jobs posted to this site.
The second significant changes that offered enormous benefit to jobseekers was the arrival of the "aggregator" job site, such as
a job site that searches thousands of other job sites, newspapers, associations and company career pages, providing access to millions of jobs from across the Internet.
You can use the search box below to search millions of job listings at Indeed, which is one of the key sites that you must visit during any online job search.
You should search for job listings on each job web site detailed above as part of your overall job search. Using Monster-HotJobs and an "aggregator" job web site gives you the best chance of finding the position that you are looking for, especially as this may be buried in a job web site that you would not otherwise find.
