  4. Thank for this information! With the big-name career job sites hosting tens of millions of resumes, job seekers need to find new ways to stand out and get noticed. Going to niche sites like those in this list and others that I have noted in my own job search blog for executives and senior managers (http://advice.cio.com/blogs/cio_job_search_a_real_life_chronicle) are a great way to connect with hiring firms.

    Keep up the good work!!
