From the article: The Top Eight Job Search Engines on the Web

Indeed works & truly one of the best!
- Indeed is actually excellent - I have used the free app, as well as, their website. By location and/or key word works great! I obtained several interviews and accepted two job offers (one full time, the other "on-call") - all from obly using Indeed. I've never received any type of spam whatsoever - honestly nothing - no education, loans, credit check offers , etc, ect - Ive tried several other job sites and, for me, Indeed was the bwst by far (the state and government direct hob listings are alao an excellent choice for obtaing employment) Indeeds website and free app both allow for multiple resumes to be added and stored which then can be used to apply directly for some of the available jobs. In thinking this over as I'm commenting here, I should mention that I do live in Las Vegas and although Indeed is an amazing job search engine for me, I can't say if it will work for your area jobs, but I hope you at least give it try - and hopefully you'll have just as good of results!!

There are more
- I personally use www.jobibex.com as it offers jobs around the globe especially in Middle East

good site for work-from-home jobs
- This site charges a minimal fee for job postings, but is cool because it's a niche job board for work-from home jobs. www.SkipTheDrive.com
- You can also use http://simpletelecommute.com to find jobs. It is only for finding online and telecommuting jobs and is very useful.

Jobs at a glance
- I don't agree with Lisa when she says people is lazy nowadays. Maybe in other fields we've get used to the "I want it all and I want it now" demand, but as for job search time is the key, as you're competing in some way with the rest of candidates. So, job search engines' goal (some with more success than others) is always to optimize users' time. But, as Lisa said, "there are other ways to go about seeking employment" away from you computer and we must never forget them as a complement to job search websites. That's how I got my job, I applied for very specific positions (and set up alerts to stay tuned to new ones) and I told my friends I was searching for a job...and voilà! The job search engines that have been more useful for me, so far, are SimplyHired.com, Trovit Jobs ( job.trovit.com) and LinkedIn...and above all: my friends! :)
YES, BRING BACK THE WAY IT USE TO BE
- It all honesty I agree with some of you about using a newspaper to job hunt and the calls to further your education is quite annoying. I'm seeking employment in order to make ends meet and if I want to further my education later on I will call, stop the harassment! The process of using the computer is fine but there are are other ways to go about seeking employment like, pounding the pavement! I just think people have gotten too lazy!

- It looks like Indeed.com now lets you send up your resume and apply with it.

I like Gibiru jobs
- I found my job there: http://gibiru.com/index.php/jobs, simple to use and filter for various advanced search results. You can also apply directly through the site which is efficient and easy
- —Guest anonymous
- I would find it more helpful to get an explanation of the types of jobs that different sites are geared toward. Monster is a catch all for every kind of job, but does have many outdates listings. Craigslist is free, so consider who is posting a free ad for help. Careerbuilder is fine, but largely administrative in its focus. The same goes for agencies. perhaps a good Agency contact list would help as well. so much of this is trial by fire. One person's good experience is another person's bad experience.

Intriguing (if baffling) list
- Monster #1? Not only do I rarely find anything in my field when looking at Monster, but every other page is an annoying advertisement trying to get me to sign up for some college. And the ads are so large that I used to mistake them as things that I *had* to sign up for in order to see my search results! Very deceptive. And CareerBuilder.com isn't even mentioned on your list? *All* of my best job-hunting results have come from that site. I also had a lot of difficulties searching and posting on USAjobs.gov. As for the rest of the sites listed, I haven't even looked at them, but I will today! Thanks for posting!

About my experience
- I have tried quite a few job search engines and been surprised to find I then get a lot of harassment calls from college recruiting sites. Please, if you can, create a list of job search engines that do two things. FIND JOBS!!!! and Prevent harassing phone calls to "further your education". If and when one is ready, willing and able to go back to school, one will call these representatives themselves. Thank You.

No mention of free job posting sites
- This is a very good list and covers the top most job search engines . But one thing that i would like to add that all these search engines charges for job postings. Therefore there should be information about job search engines which offer free job posting .
