Job Search Site Survey Results

shareasimageLast month I made a post asking people if job search websites actually worked. I received a pretty good amount of responses from my readers. Here are the results.


As you can see 10% of the people surveyed received a job from Monster, Career Builder and “other”. 20% received a job through Indeed.  A surprising 70% didn’t receive a job through any of these websites. Maybe they found jobs via networking or something. Craigslist and Snag a job both received 0 votes. I would have thought more people would have gotten a job using some of these sites. I guess I was wrong.

I’ve found employment through Indeed and Craigslist (PT Job). Looking at these results I wouldn’t be motivated to use many of these websites if I were looking for work.

What about you? Would you use any of these websites to look for work? Would you try other options?

  1. That’s really interesting. I didn’t see the pole, but I have gotten a job from Craigslist. One that I held for 3 years and proved to be incredibly lucrative. I’m surprised no one else seems to be using the resource. Oh well, less competition when I need a job!

  2. Jason none of these sites would be a starting point for me. HR surveys reveal that most jobs are filled based on people you know. Having said that, I’ve found jobs through sites, just not these ones. Usually sites related to my industry or the sector I’m interested in.
