Monster is still one of the most popular employment sites and have a chat feature if you need assistance. For employers, it still has options to post 30 to 60 day packages where you can post multiple positions. Monster allows you to view how many employers have checked out your resumes as well as browse jobs by location or company. Monster also offers some great career resources that include resume writing services, education, training and a personal finance area.
Similar to Monster, Career Builder offers the option to add your resume and search by category, by city and by company. Their job recommendation engine remembers your search, scans your resume while delivering jobs that meet your interests and keywords.

LinkedIn offers a great networking opportunity when meeting recruiters through groups for job seekers. You can join up to 50 groups and find out which ones work for you. JOBS is one group as well as Indeed which has over 30,000 members. Job groups are available for interns as well engineers, construction, and management consulting.
But my personal favorite is Indeed which has offered the most bang for the buck and is the one of the most visited on the internet also free in all services since paid advertising from employers is how Indeed is paid. You can configure a variety of alerts with one or more key words to open more doors. You can set up alerts by jobs or companies. So if there is a company you really want to get into, you can watch to see what matches your needs Countless searches can be achieved with writing for example, such as free-lance writing, copy writing, content writing, blogging, even off the wall categories such as inspirational writing narrows your search for what you really want.
USA Jobs is reputable site since it is the Federal Governments official list of positions.
Company websites also offer the list of job openings available, how to apply, keeping your application on file but securing that the job and company you are applying is real. Job scams are overwhelming today as far as setting up fake interviews so regardless of where you apply, research the company website.
Be careful of first name e-mails, form Lisa, Linda and Mark with no real identification. A recruiter from a specific company is going to be identified with the companies e-mail and website. Even in many social media sites, fake pages exist on all networks and it is important to verify. Stay away from profiles whose followers are small in numbers and check to see who they are following. Sometimes scammers will steal the name of a well-known company and post a fake job. Again, always check with the company website to assure that the jobs posted are current.
