If you are a company seeking qualified job applicants, it is vital to get your job posting out there on the internet. Candidates use job search engines to find jobs nowadays. Two of the biggest are Indeed and SImply Hired. One of the ways to get on there is to post your job on a site and hope that they find it and your post goes on one of their search results.
To help in this I would post in the following sites:
(I will add more to this list as I find more sites)
Gone are the days, where a recruiter is in high demand. We are in a prolong recession or a better term is a recovery less recovery. 50% of college graduates are unemployed or underemployed. Corporations are no longer doing mass hiring. Retail is not expanding. Company's are not as eager to use an agency to fill roles.
Yet, at the same time some company's are hiring. It is not for every position. But for a few select positions. It is not correct to say that Health Care or IT is the only won hiring. But specific positions in health care like Occupational Therapists or Physical Therapist. In IT, technicians and network guys are a dime a dozen. But a cheap and good .Net Developer or Sharepoint Developer is hard to find.
So in this new recruiting environment, it is time to adjust. I say new, but it has been like this since 2007. For the last 5 years, recruiting and the needs to pay for a recruiter is dead. It is time to adjust.
I've known about SimplyHired.com for awhile now. But after using it for a bit I realize that it is a great resource for someone looking for a job. It is almost exactly like Indeed.com. The difference is that it pulls up on it's searches a lot of different jobs than Indeed. So, if you are looking for a job, consider using SimplyHired as a supplement not a full replacement for Indeed.
Also, consider some of the other sites listed below:

The economy stinks right now. This is opening up a wave of entrepreneurs in recruiting. There are so many different companys trying a whole bunch of different things. But notice some have some sticking power over the years and some have not. Despite all the new competition Dice, Monster, CareerBuilder, Indeed, and others have thrived over the years.
One of the first questions I ask for any new potential recruiting deal is what are your financial projections. To sort out the pretenders from the real contenders a real company has well thought out and prudent financial projections. If all someone has is an idea and no projections, then this tells me about their business.
When a company pays a big fee to fill a contingency placement, it is key to submit the right type of candidate. Thus, finding the must have requirements for a position is big. If a candidate is close but is missing one and especially two must haves. Then, it is best not to move forward with the candidate.
For example, if the client is asking for an Organizational Development person with direct experience in a manufacturing environment. I would not submit someone who has everything else but is missing the key experience in a manufacturing environment.
Give the client what he wants, not close to what he wants.
It used to be that Indeed would scour the internet for all job postings. Wheter the site was a pay for a posting site like CareerBuilder, a company website, or a free posting site like Craigslist or Ebay Classifieds - the job posting would appear on the results of the Indeed job search engine result. Not any more. They no longer show results from free posting sites. So if your posting appears on Craigslist, ebay classifieds, or other free sites, it will no longer appear on Indeed.
This means, the recruiting strategy of posting on a free site and then have it appear on Craigslist will not work anymore.
