… According to Weddles.

If you don’t know Weddles, they have, for several years now, published a guide to online job search. The poll I’m going to reference is an online poll from Weddle’s readers. They seem to have a decent grasp on the realities of the modern job search:

“Most job seekers use a number of different sites. The average now is five. I recommend using two of the big general sites like or Yahoo! HotJobs and three specialty sites — one that concentrates on your career field, one industry site, and one that focuses on the location where you live or want to live. That way you’re covered from all angles, and keeping track of the activity on five sites is easier than it sounds, because most of them have features that will notify you when a new opportunity that’s appropriate for you gets posted.”

The following is from their polling, the 2008 Users’ Choice Award winners:

General Purpose

Niche – Career Field

Niche – Industry

Niche – Geography

Niche – Affinity

Niche – Employment category
