5 Free Job Posting Boards and a brief overview with the text taken directly from their websties without modification.

Here are 5 Free job posting and Spidering sites in no particular order of preference.

Resumark.com (Text is from the Resumark.com website)

Unlike most other job websites on the Internet, we will list your jobs for free. That’s right – you can post as many jobs as you want – completely free. We are the first website to come up with this idea and here is how it works:

ZipRecruiter.com(Text is from theZipRecruiter.com website)

Founded in 2010, Ziprecruiter enables companies to post to multiple free job boards with a single submission and vet all applicants through simple-to-setup online interviews.

JobSpider.com (Text is from the JobSpider.com website)

JobSpider.com is a free employment information exchange job board actually modeled from http://www.craigslist.org. My name is Chris McGarry and I designed it because I was looking for a network administrator and it was frustrating to not see an intuitive and nicely organized free job board. The response has obviously been overwhelming and my “small project” has blossomed into a very popular job board that, in many ways, rivals the big boys (i.e. Monster, HotJobs, etc.).

JobSpider.com is FREE to employers and jobseekers. There is no charge to post a resume, post job(s), search through the resumes, search through the jobs, or create a job alert. JobSpider.com is FREE to employers and jobseekers because I generate revenue through advertising on the site. The only fee that I will charge is to bulk import jobs for employers.

Free job posting sites used to contain very little functionality, or at worst, be a simple forum of spam type posts without very much value. However, it seems now like free job boards may be able to offer some interesting services. Free job posting is here to stay and will keep the non free job boards innovating and adding more value for recruiters, employers, and job seekers.
