Monster, CareerBuilder, Cybercoder, et al...

...can go away.

They haven't gotten me one damn job lead despite applying for over a hundred jobs over the course of the last year and a half plus. The real kicker was this email that I received yesterday afternoon:

Hi Patrick,

The Web Designer position you applied for with CyberCoders on 9/15/2008 has been closed. If it re-opens and you are a fit, we will be in touch!

In the meantime, we have thousands of open positions on our site which you may search through to find a match!

I just now receive a notice that a job opening that I applied for NINE MONTHS AGO is closed.

Thanks for nothing, job sites.

From my experience, it is often beneficial for job seekers to approach some of the job agencies around because they have the business contacts and you can get much more exposure through them than you would if you were to be looking in a newspaper or even online job search.
