Indeed got me 3 job interviews, I have not been successful with either monster or career builder (the only calls i have gotten were for marketing position which are commission based and not my type of thing). But since i hear career builder and Monstor do work i might use them a little more.

The one I have now, the one before it, and the one before that. So, I have found a lot of them online...you just have to use the sites intelligently, apply right after the jobs are posted, etc.

I've had many application rejections from indeed. I've found more jobs on Craigslist.

Ive had better success with Linkedin. But I used Indeed since they have a better Forum and also employee comments on the company.

Monster & Jobs USA were a bust for me.

My husband has found tons of jobs by posting his resume on Dice. He's in IT.

I've found most of my jobs by going directly to the company's website.

All I've gotten from Indeed, Careerbuilder, etc. is a hell of a lot of spam.
