JOB SEARCH resources?

Monster or CareerBuilder and why?

Any experiences or thoughts? Does anyone have other ideas or avenues for posting a resume online? What are the big keys to get it noticed?

Are we there yet?

I like monster but you MUST RENEW EVERY DAY!!!!!! The resumes are listed on there in order of when they were renewed so that will help your resume stay on top of the list. People are lazy and they don't want to dig too deep in the pile. I like the feature that monster has that shows you how many times your resume has been viewed. I'm sure the others have that too though. Good luck

Actually this is a good topic. . .

I choose Career Builder if I could only pick one. They're a bit newer and maybe not as "flooded" (?). I dunno, they just seem a little more professional to me.

They're all free so sign up on them all! I've had the best success with a little tool I call "Networking"! Try posting up on our Employment Listings forum or send out a mass email to all your friends, family and contacts. Talk to old employers and see if they have any openings or if they have an associate at another firm that may be looking for help.

Does anyone else know of other quality job listing sites or other ways to really get noticed?

monster, but only becuase I got a great job through it once.
but whatever you do, it still requires daily upkeep. the only way to get noticed on the internet is to be as less generic as possible.
