The Big Three Job Boards
One of the most popular multiple industry and national sites for posting, resume collection, and job-search information. It includes help wanted ads from more than 200 newspaper markets and metropolitan areas in electronic format. Beyond resume posting, participants are able to browse jobs and apply online, distribute resumes, take career tests, use the site's free salary calculator, look for local and regional career fairs, get career advice from experts, and have a resume critiqued. You can search jobs by a wide variety of variables including company, industry, category, and location.
Literally and figuratively, one of the monsters of all posting, resume collection, and career advice sites. This creatively advertised and widely recognized job board offers employer research, search-agent capabilities, and job search advice. Like all the big boards, it is very user-friendly. This site promotes with great pride the fact that it contains millions of resumes and millions of postings for job seekers of all stages and ages, including internship candidates, soon-to-be and recent college grads, and experienced professionals. Additional site amenities include: scholarship research, information about online degrees, and Monster en Español.
This site, a subsidiary of Yahoo!, is the force behind Yahoo!'s career channel. It offers industry information, job search advice, and a relocation center. Postings may be accessed by categories including company, staffing firm, U.S. location, international location, and industry.
