I've listened to the job boards, resume, linkedin, and career fair podcasts.  I've been trying to figure out what I should use for my 8 and am having trouble classifying job boards.  CareerBuilder & Monster are easy to figure out as general but I'm not sure on the rest.  I work in IT Security/Cyber Security and am looking in both Atlanta and Northern Va/DC area.


  • Hire-A-Driod App


  • AJC (Atlanta Journal Connection) uses
  • Washington Post
  • ('s "local portal")
  • (localjobsnetworks "local portal")


There's also the and the recruiter sites.  When looking at the local sites, they are mostly all using either the aggregators or monster/careerbuilder for their information.  When I do the preliminary search to see if they have jobs for my field, most of the jobs are from a specific company (like a government contractor) or from recruiting/temp company (like CyberCoders or TekSystems).

Should I use both the aggregators and local sites even if they are the same site? Should I try to find the boards that can minimize the overlap?  Should using the aggregators/general sites as a local job board take precedence and then find a different aggregator/general for the those categories?  What's considered general job board, is it one that has all types of jobs all over the country?  So even though it's only for Federal Jobs would be general or would it be Industry specific since it's only for one type of job.  Same question with since it's mainly focused on technology jobs, is it considered general or industry?

Should I use the recruiting company specific sites or just rely on the general board since they usually post there and usually recruit from the general boards duplicate their posts on both sites.
