Job Boards? BNET sez fuggetaboutit.

BNET’s Sales Machine (Geoffrey James) asks the question one more time with vigor: What’s the best way to job hunt?

I asked Nick Corcodilos, author of the professional’s job hunting classic “Ask The Headhunter” what he thought of job boards like Monster.com, Careerbuilder,com, and TheLadders.com.  His observation: “Job boards are a rip-off.  Companies only hire about 3 percent of their employees on these sites. TheLadders.com is probably the worst.  The claim that they’re finding jobs at the $100k-plus level is nonsense. They can’t and don’t deliver the goods.”

A whopping thank you to Geoffrey for spiking this topic back to the top of the stack.
