I clicked through a few blog posts and comment author links (since their comments were interesting to me) and ended up on Dave McClure's weblog (again). There at the top, I saw his latest entry - that SimplyHired.com has just been launched.

So, I clicked on over. It's fast, easy, nifty and cool. Within a few seconds I did a search for keywords in my area and found current job listings from Monster, America's Job Bank, Career Center, USA Jobs, HotJobs and more.

Search for a phrase by putting it in quotes. You can see the age of the listing under each item, as well as where it's from. When you click on a link, you go to the original listing.

Fast, simple and it works. Not bad. They even have a blog.

And I like the "no results" response:

"Dang. We didn't find anything for you.

"You're probably a good speller, but check the description or location terms you entered. You can also try using some other keywords, or enter fewer words to expand your search

"It's also possible we made an error somewhere. Sometimes computers are human too. Sorry."

SimplyHired is a terrific Web property; well conceived and easy to use. Here, too, Just-Posted (http://www.just-posted.com) is worthy of a visit. It features mSEARCH! - an innovative, new job search tool that simultaneously searches (via the Web or email) the Web’s top job boards and instantly delivers job search results and contextual ‘career’ content via email. Easily configured - mSEARCH! can be co-branded (Example: http://www.writeCLICKresume.com, http://www.searchforclasses.com)for career-minded Webmasters.

Got to your blog by searching for funny error messages. They indeed make a site lively even when something goes dead.
