Not all job search sites are created equal. Some search sites simply have more listings, more useful information, and more frequent updates.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) August 15, 2012
As the Internet becomes increasingly foundational to the way people do business, it continues to offer more and more tools and resources for those seeking employment. As the Internet grows ever more crowded with job search tools, however, many job seekers wonder which career services are the most advantageous, and the most popular. A new poll, conducted by JobGoRound.com, offers some insight. The new poll, which asks job seekers which career sites they most frequently use, has uncovered the fact that some job search sites are much more widely-used than others.
Jason Kay, the founder and developer of JobGoRound.com, says these findings are far from surprising. “Not all job search sites are created equal,” says Kay, with regard to the poll results. “Some search sites simply have more listings, more useful information, and more frequent updates. Those things are perfectly obvious to the job seekers who visit JobGoRound.com. What our site users are after is results—and clearly, some job sites deliver where others do not.”
According to the site’s poll, Indeed.com is the most popular job search site, commanding 28 percent of the vote. Its lead is a narrow one, however, with Craigslist.org coming in at 25 percent. Careerbuilder.com, with 18 percent of the vote, joins them in the upper echelon.
Other job search sites barely even register among JobGoRound.com users. At the bottom of the list is Job.com, with a mere one percent of the vote. SimplyHired.com fares only slightly better, coming in with four percent.
According to Kay, these poll results offer significant services to the users of JobGoRound.com. “Our site exists as a resource for those keen on leveraging the power of the Internet to find employment,” he muses. “What this means is that JobGoRound.com seeks to point job seekers to the best career search sites on the Web—and these poll results offer a clear indication of the ones that rank at the top of the list.”
JobGoRound.com is a site that Kay developed as a one-stop shop for online career assistance. In addition to its own job search database, the site also features links to resume writing services, career networking sites, interview tips, and more.
