How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a wood chuck would chuck wood?

How many jobs can a job search company generate if a job search company could generate jobs?

I have friends and acquaintances who are in job search mode. As I try to help them I cannot have any reaction but confusion when I see the choices out there,
  1. -- Find your dream job.
  2. -- one search, all jobs.
  3. -- Discover job & business opportunities
  4. -- the premier talent source.
  5. theladders - the most 100K+ jobs
  6. -- make your move
  7. -- [.nothing.]
  8. -- job search made simple.
  9. (update) -- where talent lives
I think the only thing that stands out from the others here is theladders. I also like indeed since it is the best aggregator out there but seriously....

So what again? Some of these have pyramid schemes of reward ala amway some think you can do everything from cook in France to manage the books for lulu. Is there any differentiation here?

You might want to check out RiseSmart, the $100K job site that features real human beings to weed out irrelevant results. WPVI in Philadelphia did a news story on niche job sites and highlighted RiseSmart among all the $100K sites. Here's that news report. Full disclosure: RiseSmart is a client.
