I noticed no mention of the "big 3". So are Careerbuilder, Monster and HotJobs out of the picture in your mind (also dice)?
What role will sites like play?

Take care,

I need to figure out how Alex manages to comment on every post about Emurse 3 seconds after it is posted ;)

Chris, I appreciate landing on this list. It is very exciting to be a part of this Job Search 2.0 thing... and as usual there are some great things coming out of JibberJobber that is keeping it current with the job search trends.

Are you going to expand on each of these sections in subsequent posts?
