I am trying to find a new salary job. Do websites such as Monster\Careerbuilder work?

Honestly, Monster and Careerbuilder weren't very helpful for me. The only places that ever contacted me were temp agencies. The way I got my job is through a friend referral. Another person I know just went through the phone book and faxed everyone her resume and she got a job. Good luck to you!

Especially since the dot com crash, companies outside of employment agencies have stayed away from listing hourly wages or salaries. Your #1 bet right in that respect would be They have some kind of pay side for their service, but you can run some checks for free.

I'm an HR Rep and the company I work for does not permit on the spot interviews for security purposes. If you go to these random companies more than likely people will not be able to meet with you, people get really busy at work... More
