A long time ago at the beginning of the internet the best places to post jobs was the Usenet newsgroups. These posting news groups were free to post jobs. They had evolved from the forerunner of the internet called Fidonet when information was carried in packets. It was all the rage then. And the good news is they are still free to post jobs, even hearsay jobs.

They offer great keyword search features and because it is free for recruiters then they have many jobs that are not posted anywhere else. Nevertheless these are good place not to overlook in the job search. In the spirit of free job posting sites other places evolved from them such as Yahoo mail groups and even Google groups and now Social Media.
