Climbto350.com

Yes, I got my current job by responding to an ad on Climbto350.com.

n/a
I found a job on climbto350, and was subsequently hired. I keep a subscription and send out resumes all the time. I learned a long time ago that furloughs, downsizing, cutbacks, and who-knows-what-else are facts of life in this business.

You're far better off saying no frequently, turning jobs down, than finding ourself out work and starting looking then. Be looking all the time. You never know when something better may come along.

I think that is the best advice I have ever read on this site.

Climbto350 has the most job leads. I also like planejobs.com.

Got plenty of offer from Planejobs.com

It seems like you get the jobs on Planejobs.com first then they get copied to other boards. Got plenty of offer from Planejobs.com
You might want to try www.skyjobs.net if your cheap its free.

Climbto350.com worked for me too. It's worth the money, especially if you have competitive times (not just minimums) and you post a good resume for people to look at. I've turned down several jobs refered to me from climbto350. The owner called me personally for a job offered in my area before it was posted. You don't get any better than that, IMHO.

I sent my resume on 350 for a job offered in my local area......had an interview the next day. I also have had several companies contact me just for having my resume listed there (not sending it to them)

Similar results here. Never a "next day" interview...but I've gotten a lot of interviews locally and not so locally.

350 is awesome...gotten some calls and said no a lot.

Avbug is right on. ALWAYS send out the resumes...update it often too.

Great advice avbug.

Well by gosh, thanks man
















:D
On a more serious note, I do attend to agree with with the notion that one should always be looking since no one really knows what tom. may or may not bring. A backup plan is worth it's weight in gold on more than a few occasions. Saying "no" isn't a bad thing sometimes, just don't burn any bridges.

From what I've learned in the past, both sites recycle the same jobs. I looked through the list on climbto350.com and notice the "common" list of foreign jobs in the Middle East, etc. Seems like these jobs dominate those sites lately.

coming from a guy who used to do the hiring...i couldnt disagree more. once you interview, get the offer, and turn it down, whats giving you the idea it will be offered again? better to keep in contact with a few potential employers, and pull the trigger when the time comes, than to burn that opportunity just to "see if you could get the offer" ;)

I think the important thing is to keep your options open. Get out there and interview...why not? If you get a better offer, go for it. If you don't...then you know you aren't missing anything.

Why limit yourself to where you're at?
