I have actually gotten a lot of attention through Craigslist believe it or not. My last job with a big financial firm came through Craigslist. They were too cheap to pay for an ad. But it got by foot into the industry.

Default hilarious

This is hilarious. I showed my coworker this forum and she pointed it out when someone said only staff agencies with low pay use Monster... and we do!! Then we had a huge town hall meeting about recruiting more people and using Monster. I wanted to bust out laughing and show them this board.

Ziprecruiter and Indeed are the best(or have been for me.) I get really frustrated by Monster. I have used them occasionally but never received a call or email from anywhere I applied through them.

My wife's current employer recruited her from Monster, but that was more than 10 years ago. All I've ever gotten from it is spam.

Monster is garbage all fake jobs. Recruiters just want your work history and managers name and numbers so they can contact them for future positions and networking.

Monster is trash. Dumb sales scams and very few opportunities.

I would use Monster to find out what company is hiring, then go to the actual company website and apply there.
