When I was looking for a job a friend of mine suggested the website Hound.com and I found it very useful, after I applied for a few jobs through the site I managed to find work in my field of work which is electrical engineering just a few weeks after I joined it!
There are many such sites, Hound.com being the largest. The site boasts that it displays over 700,000 job openings, jobs which often aren’t posted anywhere except on the employer’s own website. Initially this seems a staggering amount to navigate through, but what was different about this site was its ease of use, it displays job openings through city and through category, there is also the option of sercahing by organization, making the search very convenient. As well as showing engineering opportunities which led me to find a job, there are a myriad of jobs being advertised on the site
retail jobs,sales jobs,healthcare jobs,finance jobs, legal jobs, human resource jobs, you name it! Another thing which I especially liked about the site was that there were no advertisements or banners to be seen. The best thing about the site though, for me anyway, is that it leads you straight to contact with the employer, there is no middle man. Hound.com seems to be recognised as a success byy other websites such as Applicant.com. I would definately recommend it to anybody who is looking to find work.
thanks guys!! this seems like a great forum site, toffeepop.

Most of the calls I got came from applications I put in at the company's own website.

Hound.com is also known for using other internet websites as an advertisement vehicle for themselves.

Like writing a single post, under a handle acting like a private individual, on a message board.
