CareerXroads just reported that only 1.8% of hires were made as a result of posts to www.hotjobs.com. Last year they reported that less than 10% of all hires made came from the big 3 (monster.com, hotjobs.com and caereerbuilder.com)... Feel free to click on the link above and read the full article. They've got a ton of information on their site - really a must read!
These are not great numbers folks. As I've said in the past, I do believe job boards have their place. However, if you are reading this entry - they probably aren't going to be the best tool for you based on your needs. Corporate sites (if maintained and working well) outperform boards by almost 40% on average...and of course working with recruiters really increases your success rate.
