September 18, 2008, 12:46 AM
‘The times, they are a-changing’ ...so the song goes, and so goes events in our world. As such, our Leaky Lounge has added a new forum to discuss these ever changing times, the myriad of political and social events that are grabbing headlines and impacting our everyday life. The forum is called “The Muggle Underground: Politics, Current Events, and Social Issues,” and it is, as the name suggests, a place to discuss those hot-button topics facing us all in politics, world events, social events and much more. Please note: Given that these issues can sometimes become a bit heated and emotional, we ask that you please read this thread before posting in our new forum.
Did you see it ? :) It’s simply beautyfull thing http://adventures.110mb.com
I`am new girl on www.the-leaky-cauldron.org .Let’s gets acquainted!
My name is Victoria.
I recently found a new jobs site called HealthCareCrossing. What is interesting is that HealthCareCrossing goes out and finds all of the health care jobs from other job boards and employer websites (i.e., magazines, newspapers, hospitals, clinics and general posting sites) and gathers them all up and puts them in one place.
I have found some listings to be out of date but still think the site is ok . I hope these guys make it because it is a good resource for the customer service-related community in my opinion since the site is dedicate exclusively to us.
I’d recommend looking at a good source of construction jobs
you should be aware of a new site called ConstructionCrossing
What I have been told is that is that ConstructionCrossing researches all of the construction jobs from other job boards and employer websites and puts them all its site . The site is a real time saver in a lousy market.
I just got back from Los Angele and the best jobs ANY carpenter can get right now is around $20.00 an hour. : ( There are still a few employer out there who are busy but do not realize there has been so much construction wage deflation. ConstructionCrossing is a decent resource for finding these jobs
I hope no one tells anyone about this outside this forum—but the best way to find jobs is to investigate jobs on employer websites. This is where most of the jobs are and I found this far more effective than other means.
I started using a research jobs site called Hound that I do not think anyone knows about because it is run by a small company that does not advertise. I
All Hound.com does is show you unadvertised job openings that are not publicly advertised and are located on employer websites.
Very few people realize that most employers post their job on their own sites and not on job boards like Monster, CareerBuilder, etc. because these sites charge employers up to $500 to post a single job. In my experience (I am getting more interviews that I ever have), your chances of getting interviews and hired are much better when you are applying to jobs that are not advertised that no one knows about.
I have gotten a ton of interviews through the Hound site . If you are looking for a job I would highly recommend using Hound . What most people do not realize is that most jobs are found on employer websites and not job boards. Hound puts all of the jobs it finds from employer websiste (every Fortune 500, Inc. 500 and other company it can locate) on its site.
When you start seeing sites advertise themselves a lot that should be a warning sign of sorts because that means that lots of people will start going and applying to the jobs. I really trust Hound because it does not advertise.

I recently found called EmploymentCrossing
that I do not think anyone knows about. What is different about the site is that EmploymentCrossing
researches all of the jobs
from other job boards and employer websites and puts them all its site.
This includes all jobs from every job board, jobs from association websites and jobs from newspaper help wanted ads.
The site does not really advertise at all so I do not think anyone knows about it. It is a lot different than Indeed, SimplyHired and other sites like that because it just does research of the jobs and shows you what is out there. Other sites are charging employers to post jobs which really limits your options … I got like six interviews from the site in less than a week and was not having luck on major job boards.
I noticed that a few of the jobs I applied to seemed to potentially have been expired because I have not heard back from the employers after over a week. Other than this I like the EmploymentCrossing site a lot. I know other people that have had excellent results with it but many people are afraid to use it due to the cost. When I signed up there was a free trial but I am not sure that is there anymore. If there is a free trial I would definetely check it out because there is nothing to lose.
The way high level executives get jobs costs a little bit of money but it does work for everyone. It does not involve job boards or recruiters and seems to work for just about everyone who tries it.
This job market is horrible. I just read today that another company closed down. I was laid off two weeks ago. I am worried but not overly so. I know a really good way to find a job that I used in graduate school but I am confident a lot of others will NOT try.
With only a few exceptions, the only people I know who are getting interviews are doing targeted mailing of their legal resume with cover letters to employers who might not necessarily be hiring. I did this when I was in graduate school three years ago and it worked.
When I was in graduate school (I went to a top 5 business school), I did not get a single interview through on-campus—but that may have had something to do with my grades. I went to an Ivy League college but did not do well business school—at least not in the top 10%. I did fine in my job search, however: I had at least four offers. I used a service called that EmploymentAuthority to mail out over 500 letters.
The service cost me over $1,000 but I really think it was worth it. I was getting interviews within 3 days of sending out my letters. I think this is a great way to get a job—even if you decided to do the work you have to pay the EmploymentAuthority guys to do on your own. The service is expensive but it is really too much work to do on your own.
Be proactive in your job search!! I think the mass mailing idea is the smartest way to get a job by far. The reason is because most law firms when they have extra work do not go out and advertise for associates—they just do not do the extra work. This method of finding a job shows the firms they can get someone to help now without them having to advertise or lift a finger. Plus, most of the firms I approached thought that I was writing them because I knew about them from somewhere. They were impressed I wrote them!
I ordered the EmploymentAuthority service from the company about a week ago and should be mailing my letters any day. I am sure I am going to get calls pretty quickly (within 3-4 days) after sending my letters. Sure … I will not have heard of a lot of firms that are calling but I am going to have offers I am sure. This is how people are getting legal jobs right now.
