Selected Employment Sites

    Launched in 1995. Distributes 75 free weekly employment magazines on city streets and in grocery stores. Advertises hourly and skilled jobs, from entry-level to mid-management employment opportunities, organized by state.
    Since 1998, has helped job seekers find employment in the public sector. "In times of uncertainty, government jobs are considered more solid opportunities, and more stable than those in the private sector," says Lorne Epstein, recruiting expert and author of You're Hired! Interview Skills to Get the Job.
    Offers software and services to help companies and employees benchmark their salaries. Type in your job title and zip code, and the site's Salary Wizard spits out a range of what others in your industry who live nearby are pulling down.
    Aggregates job listings from thousands of sites catering to specific cities, industries and companies, such as, ConstructionJobForce, EducationJobSite. Membership is free.
    This career-development catchall site does not post job openings, but it does offer loads of job-search tips, interview advice and career-planning resources.
    Easy-to-remember aggregator assembles job postings by industry and state (not particularly helpful for, say, a Manhattan resident looking for a job in Buffalo). Also offers résumé writing tips and a free career test.
    Official site of the U.S. federal government, allows users to create an account and store up to five different résumés; search for jobs; and read about the latest employment trends.
    Focuses on the hourly job market. Third fastest grower among development Web sites, according to Nielsen.
    This global aggregator (tagline: "one search. all jobs.") is easy to use, cleanly designed and knows how to get the word out, making it the second-fastest- growing job-related site, according to Nielsen.
    "Simply Hired came out of nowhere" at No. 4, says Chuck Schilling, research director at Nielsen. Its more than doubling of traffic makes Simply Hired the fastest grower in the category. In addition to compiling postings listed on specific company Web sites, the site also offers automatic news feeds, social networking tools and salary information.
    Launched in 1987 and aimed at employers looking to attract and retain talent. With the help of organizational psychologists, consultants and statisticians, Kenexa places 52,000 employees annually.
    The catchall, if a bit impersonal, site remains popular because it makes people feel good to see that millions of opportunities exist, even if they aren't targeted toward them, says Nielsen's Schilling. The technology could improve, he adds.
    An aggressive marketing campaign that coincided with the economic downturn helped this comprehensive career-development staple hang on to its substantial lead among job seekers.
