Site Name: ResumeBoomer.com
Cost: $49.95 up-front fee at time of account creation

How It Works: You create an account and upload your resume. Resume Boomer then posts your resume on up to 60 job sites, including major sites like Monster.com, CareerBuilder.com, Job.com, and HotJobs.com, as well as specialty sites like Dice.com, MarketingJobs.com, SalesGravy.com, and BankingBoard.com depending on your area of specialty.

Like most quality resume posting sites, you can enter search parameters such as geography, position type, and salary to initiate automated alerts when employers post a new job that meets the criteria you entered.

Assessment: Overall, this can be a big time saver if you want to get your resume out on a lot of sites quickly, as they usually get your resume up on all 60+ job sites within a few business days. The bigger issue comes into play when you want to edit, revise, or update your resume. There is no mechanism for that to occur automatically. As such, they provide you with user name and login information for all the sites you are posted to. You would need to sign in to each site individually and update your resume one at a time on each site for the changes to be implemented. This could cost some serious time that might be spent doing more effective things for your job search.

One Thumb Up for helping you quickly introduce your resume to the market at large!
One Thumb Down for the excessive labor required to make any changes to your resume after the initial submission!

ScriptLance Review

ScriptLance Review

Continuing with our review of some known and lesser known job posting sites on the market, this time we are focusing on ScriptLance. Be sure to check out our Resume Boomer and CareerBuilder reviews as well.

Today’s review is of a not-so-well-known site for programmers and developers looking to do freelance work (either full time or off-hours from your day job).

Site Name: ScriptLance.com
Cost: Free Membership Signup and No Monthly Fees

How It Works: People post projects on ScriptLance that need programming or development work of all different types (SQL, C++, Perl, Visual Basic, Cold Fusion, .NET, HTML, XML, Joomla, JavaScript, Flash, WordPress, etc.). They describe what the requirements are and offer a budget range they are looking for. Members (programmers) then review available projects by searching on industry type, programming language, etc. to determine which projects they would like to bid on. They place their bid, competing against other members for the business.

Payment: When completed, the client pays you through ScriptLance, who takes a 5% cut of your bid price. You can withdrawal the funds from ScriptLance through Paypal, Moneybookers, bank wire, FedEx check, or have them send you a Mastercard debit card.

Assessment: Overall, this is a really great site. It provides a great avenue for those looking to earn some extra income or establish a base if you are looking to strike out on your own. It also can help those with less experience in certain technologies get the experience necessary so they can highlight it on their resume.

The Verdict: Two Thumbs Up!

To check it out or sign up, go to ScriptLance.com.
