    Good List overall. Anon sorry to hear about your bad experience with that recruiter. Next time one calls ask them how long they have been in the business. Most experienced professional recruiters will treat you with respect. That is they way they build their network

    I hate to say it, but signing up with Monster was one of the worst job search mistakes I made early on.

    I actually had recruiters finding ME--which was a wonderful change. Unfortunately it was almost exclusively for scam jobs, unpaid jobs, and jobs of a questionable nature. Only ONE recruiter actually told me who I'd be working for and what I'd be doing upfront, and the communication from that guy was so rude it was laughable. I can only assume my problems stemmed from the fact that I was a recent grad, and so probably looked to be "easy pickings."

    My choice is a platform like HelpDeskCrossing, because it is clean and neat since it only shows you jobs from employer websites and every other job board out there. Not to mention that I have never seen such a plethora of jobs. It is the perfect place for ΙΤ help desk jobs, help desk analyst jobs etc. Just take a look at Help desk Job Openings. Note also that there are a lot of jobs in the Internet Universe not well advertised or not at all advertised and yet HelpDeskCrossing manages by design to include them all.

    Thanks for this list! I have seen most of these before, but I did not have them bookmarked. With so many different sites out there, it is easy to get too cluttered and not remember what you have searched and what you haven't. This list will help me stay more organized to be sure I have checked them all.

    Also, thanks for the college recruiter site. I had not heard of this one before, and I have already found several interesting listings there!

    Hi Cryptic One, thanks for your comment. As noted in the article, the reason for adding Simply Hired were mostly because of the tools offered there, not just search results. And the article clearly states that Indeed is a meta-search engine, meaning it pulls results from not only Yahoo but other job search engines as well, so it makes sense that many of the results there would match Yahoo. I agree that Hotjobs has listings that can be outdated though - something they definitely need to work on. Also agree with CareerBuilder and Craigslist - I've personally landed some great writing "gigs" on Craigslist. Thanks again!

    I'm Sorry I am surprised to see Simply Hired, Yahoo Hot Jobs and Indeed.

    Indeed and Simply Hired are both supplied by the same job search engine even display the same jobs in the same exact order. Plus both Indeed and Simplyhired have tons of scam job postings. The only site I have seen that has maybe more is yahoo hotjobs. Plus Hotjobs have a lot of jobs listed that are not actually active or available.

    Careerbuilder and Craigslist I would put in the top two.
