Job search engines can save you time during your work search because they search only for jobs. These search engines scan job-related websites, job boards and employer sites for jobs by the category and location you choose. It then links you directly to the employer’s or recruiter’s website.
Because general search engines (like Google or Yahoo!) scan widely across the Internet to find any item that includes your search term, search results often return information that isn’t relevant to your work search. Sorting through this information takes time.
