For what it's worth, I used Monster's premium membership service and
received an astonishing number of solicitations from that alone. I can
take or leave the rest of their services, but the constant calls and
emails from recruiters actually made it worthwhile. I also put my
resume up at Dice.com, Yahoo Hotjobs, and ComputerJobs.com, but
Monster was far and away my best source for job offers.

((OBLIGATORY DISCLAIMER: Not a Monster employee. Not a Monster rep.
They don't pay me squat. :) ))
