According to the internet marketing research company comScore, searches for job search engines grew by more than 51% in 2008 to 18.8 million visitors. was the leader in the space with 9.1 million visitors, a 78% increase over 2007. Yahoo’s HotJobs was up 146% over 2007, finishing second with 5.6 million visitors. was the only site in the Top 10 to see fewer visitors in 2008 than the previous year

Most of the job search engines on comScore’s chart like CareerBuilder, Yahoo HotJobs, and are quite popular. Others like, Jobster.comand I am not very familiar with, but if our library users are actively looking for them, we need to add them to our bookmarks too and give them out during reference questions.
