I agree with Ken Bowes that Dice rocks. It is used largely by recruiters,
but I've had better results, more interesting and higher-level TW job offers
from Dice than I have from Monster.

Monster will ping on me weekly and screen for the area, but the jobs aren't
anything I want to do. My last two TW jobs have come from Dice, one contract
and the current one permanent.


My husband had the opposite luck with Dice -- he placed his resume up and was bombarded by 100 email and 100 calls in a *week*. Most of which were rude recruiters, and most of which had jobs that didn't remotely match up to what he plainly stated he was looking for. In fact, he wasn't nearly qualified for most of them, because they didn't have anything to do with what he does!

He was looking for a job as a web developer and had people throwing interviews at him for either admins or programmers (in languages he doesn't know!).
