"Refuse to listen"?? What?? Just who is refusing to 'listen'? And furthermore, how do you know that people aren't already using it or have used it? You act like you are the only person who ever discovered their state's job sites or ever goes there. It is not rocket science to the average job seeker. For many, it is mandatory that they register on it if they are collecting unemployment and many others just use it in addition to their other job search options.


No need for all your drama and speculation.

You are so far off the mark and spew so much nonsense it is unbelievable.

That is the biggest load of crap that I've seen in a while. Get a job via coworkers? LOL

You are seriously delusional.

In regards to the point of the thread, no Monster and Careerbuilder aren't very good. Like others have said, it's mostly scams and recruiting agencies. Stick with Indeed and company websites.

The best help I ever got from a co-worker was to have the doctor prescribe a different drug....Job wise, she was as similar to me in past history of work....

Yesterday I re-posted an updated resume on Monster and Careerbuilder and made it visible. Within an hour, I had received three bogus emails... the usual Aflac and New York Life Insurance pitches (even though my resume doesn't contain a single minute of sales experience) and one for some engineering position (not a single minute of that either).

I saw which way the wind was blowing again, and went back to a private profile. It's a waste of time. Scammers troll the database hoping to suck you in. Only twice have I been contacted through these job boards with a legit opportunity. Their only useful function is to have a resume on file to easily apply to a listed job.

For me Monster is behind Linkedin, Company websites and Indeed when finding work. At the most I would use Monster to find out what position company X is hiring for, then go that the companies website and apply myself. I rarely applied through monster.

If anyone intends to post their resume on Monster or Careerbuilder I would not give out your phone number and create a throw away, spam bait email account.
