Where did you go to apply for jobs? Did anyone have any luck using Monster.com or Careerbuilder.com?
I started applying yesterday using those two sites and I'm just curious if anyone had any luck with them. Thanks!

I interview people about how they landed their latest job, and for the last 12 months, the site mentioned most often in Craigslist.org. It's kind of a unique site - online classified ads, by location (city or state). No one in the last 12 months has mentioned either Monster or CareerBuilder as the source of a job... More

A few years back - I used Monster.com exclusively - It all depends on the type of jobs you are applying to.

I never got a nibble from Monster.com. You're best bet is to contact companies, directly.

I actually got a couple hits from careerbuilder.com I interviewed, and when I decided to give my current employer 1 months notice.....they gave me a fat raise, so I stayed. PS: I'm at work right now getting paid while I type this...lolol

I found my job with a temp agency but I posted my resume on Monster.com over a month ago and I am still getting calls from employers. So, those are really good websites

I am having better luck at Monster then careerbuilder. However, I am still looking because I wasn't the right "fit" for the position. Careerbuilder is nothing about agencies. You can try Indeed.com or simply hired.com Good luck.

I have found my last two jobs on monster.com - by responding to an ad posted there. My current employer uses them a lot and we get great results.
