Best Job Sites of 2010

The other day we served our 100,000th job post to RezScore users, collected from over a thousand sites through a handful of search engines (not too shabby, considering we just launched in autumn!)  Being an analytic-focused company, we wanted to see what websites were serving the best jobs.  That is to say, which job boards listed jobs our users consistently rated the highest.  Here’s what we found:

If you’re in the market for a job, the best jobs are by far are listed at Jibe, which has jobs rated roughly forty times better than ordinary job listings.  It’s perhaps little surprise, as the Jibe team has a strenuous review process for all their job listings.  The only catch is that you have to divulge personal information from your social networks to apply for their jobs.  It’s up to you to decide if your privacy is worth the trade-off.

Doostang claims second place with jobs rated roughly twenty times better than ordinary listings.  Doostang’s done quite well for itself in the past five years, and recently lifted its invite-only policy to open its gates to everybody.  Be warned that some of these jobs require a premium membership, which costs money to access.  In a close third place is The Ladders, which focuses solely on $100K jobs.  Although their jobs are clearly high caliber, they cater to a small percentage of job seekers, so their jobs didn’t capture much interest among users just starting their careers.

Fourth and fifth place also go to sites filling important niches.  In fourth place is A Mighty River, a black professional networking community.  Interestingly, even though this site is a subsidiary of Monster, the subset of job postings on A Mighty River far outperformed the postings from Monster.  Fifth place belonged to tech jobs site Dice, best known for their aggressive Pandora advertisements.

Of course, the employment world moves quickly, so it’s anybody’s guess whether or not this will hold in 2011.

RezScore has no affiliation with any of the sites mentioned above.
