My experience on this point has consistently run contrary to "the
conventional wisdom." When the pundits have stressed the value
of personal networking over newspaper ads, my jobs all came from
answering ads; when the online boards were all the rage, my jobs
all came from networking. In my most recent bout with jobhunting,
the networking mantra was dominant again. Sure enough, my
most productive contracts *and* my current position all came from
answering ads and posting my resume on online job boards. Go
figure.

I dont' use a single one. I don't need the spam, and my personal
network is much stronger than any luck that can come from a job board.
