Find Job Postings Faster on the Internet Using Aggregators!
Finding out what job openings are available can be a frustrating experience. Many openings never end up in the local newspaper Classifieds. Likewise searching the Internet for job listings can be time-consuming. Now, there's a handy new type of website that will quickly produce comprehensive listings of openings... Job Aggregators!
What is an Aggregator site? It is a website that is narrowly focused on one subject. In this case, it is job listings. Job Aggregator sites collect job postings from other websites such as Yahoo.com, CareerBuilder.com, Monster.com, HotJobs.com...AND employer websites!
Since Aggregator sites combine information from many, many sources into one database, they save you time. Search results can also be rearranged to meet your own needs. For example, searches can be sorted by employer, posting date, part-time/full-time jobs, etc.
