Job boards have become prisoners of their moniker. After all, a ‘job board’ is just an online bulletin board for ‘posting’ your electronic ‘job ad’, right?

Wrong. Job boards (and yes, I think I’m going to write a post pretty soon about alternative names!) began growing past that simple definition by 1999, if not before. Sure, they were places where employers could search candidate resumes (and if it was a niche board, then very…

Can you really get something for nothing....

advertising job sites in our directory. The reasoning behind this is to

help cut some of our overheard and be able to keep the site up and

Text Messaging is great but not during a career search!

Great article today in the Wall Street Journal titled, "Thx for the IView!..." written by Sarah Needleman. You can read the article on page D1 or online at http://online.wsj.com/article/SB121729233758791783.html
