Recession and Executive Job Search

When looking for a new job online one of the most important decisions one is faced with is which search engine to use. For those with their sights on executive jobs, this becomes even more crucial. Most of these sites are geared toward the general public, meaning that six figure jobs seem to be in short supply.

With a new career search page seeming to pop up everyday, the internet is filled with enough options to drive an indecisive person crazy. For executives hoping to locate new employment, time to analyze all the options maybe in short supply.

Frequently voted "Best of the Web" by Forbes magazine, is one of the best options available to those who are searching for executive positions. Although the site is free to job seekers, it is more selective about who it allows to be a member. Instead of simply allowing anyone to sign up and post a resume, 6FigureJobs double checks users' credentials and only allows those who have six years of business experience and have previous held a job that earned them at least $100,000 a year. The screening process takes approximately 24 hours.

Executive level job seekers aren't the only ones who have their information verified; all positions posted with 6FigureJobs have been double checked and guarantee salaries no less than $100K a year. This selectivity has helped to make the site the industry's leading page for Executive job seekers and career resources.

Offering one of the largest databases of executive level jobs, 6FigureJobs has hundreds of new posts every month. The search engine can be tailored to yield results for particular locations, fields, and positions. Employers using the site range from Fortune 1000 companies to smaller organizations and include executive recruiting firms.

According to Forbes, the websites only downfall are the "resources" entitled Be Your Own Boss and Profit from the Internet because these sections are actually little more than advertisements masquerading as valuable information. Nevertheless, the fact that the site verifies credentials and allows access to users within 24 hours makes up for its shortcomings. Another great aspect of 6FigureJobs is the fact that users have access to free resume critiques.
