Aggregator Job Sites are job search sites that aggregate millions of listings from all the major job sites (with the exception of Craigslist.org), plus newspapers, corporate job boards and other professional sites. These aggregator job sites are different from the traditional job site because the focus is on the job hunter. There are no services for the employers, though they can advertise on the sites.
Indeed.com Indeed gives job seekers free access to millions of employment opportunities from thousands of web sites. The site makes it easy for you to drill down by key word, location, and job title to jobs that fit your requirements. You may save your searches and have jobs delivered to you by email alert, My Yahoo, or other RSS feed readers. Indeed also provides good information on the freshness of the job, listing the number of hours/minutes the item has been available on the site.
SimplyHired.com Simply Hired offers more features than Indeed.com. With SimplyHired.com, you can search by keyword, location, or specific occupation. You can filter results by job type, required experience, education and date. You can also filter by company size and revenue. In addition, SimplyHired allows users to rate each job result, and when you've rated enough job listings, SimplyHired will begin to suggest job listings based on your preferences. PC Magazine says "this site should be your new first Web stop when looking for a job." Although users can't post their resumes on SimplyHired, the site's Resume Post feature will post a resume to five major job boards (including CareerBuilder.com, Monster.com and Job.com) for free. Each job you choose to save on the SimplyHired website, you can also link to LinkedIn.com and search for connections in that company.
Oodle.com This is a classified-ad aggregator that pulls its listings from thousands of other sites (though not from Craigslist.org). The site simply links to ads found elsewhere, with some tools for refining a search and an option to receive e-mail updates about new listings. Classifieds are especially useful for those searching for non-corporate, non-technical jobs, and PC Magazine calls Oodle "a formidable Web presence" in the field.
Hound.com This aggregator job site narrows its search results to employer websites only. The idea is to weed out "junk" listings and positions that have been filled in favor of the most current postings from company sites. The focus on quality over quantity could save time wasted by chasing dead or worthless links.
CareerOneStop.org This Department of Labor's site allows users to search state job banks, which incorporate a wide variety of non-technical and non-business categories and replaces the now defunct America's Job Bank. This site retains the InfoNet section, which contains occupation profiles, medium salary information and education statistics supplied by the government.
