  • I suggest craigslist.A lot of jobs post there because it is free whereas monster and hotjobs aren't to post ads. Do a search in the search engine also and see what you come up with. A lot of jobs on hotjobs are through a referral agency or something so you have to be careful. Good luck in your search.

  • I like careerbuilder.com the best, Monster is good as well. You can tell if they aren't legitimate by the wording of the ad - if they are promising thousands of dollars and you don't need experience, don't apply :)

  • There are a lot of jobs there but there are a lot of people looking there too. It can't hurt though

  • Sure: monster/hotjobs, CareerBuilder, Craigslist, company job boards, Ideallist, etc. all have real jobs posted; you can even use an agregator, like Indeed or Simply Hired, to comb the job boards for you.


    That said, only 40-60% of available jobs are advertised; you need to network, using Linkedin and other sources, and find the hidden jobs.


    I do career and job search coaching. I am always happy to help CafeMoms (and Dads) with resumes, coverletters, job search strategy, interview prep, etc. (I never charge CafeMoms for my services).
