Job markets r-evolutions

Apparently, not much has happened in the online job-markets since became the 800-lb. gorilla. Contenders have either been devoured by, or stayed on life support due to the hopes Yahoo! and its likes have for this market. All this would have made for a boring landscape, in which the process of looking for a job on Monster is like asking your current HR person for a job with another company, had it not been for a new concept introduced by companies like LinkedIn or Doostang. These companies leverage the salient feature of job markets, that is networking. Your typical candidate, for once, becomes a multi-faceted entity, represented as such, that reveals a wealth of information before you even make a phone call. The job market is among the first to capitalize on concepts such as markets as conversations or social networks. There is so much more to happen before late.

At this time, listing job offers with Doostang is still free.

Since they offer free services, here's a comment I posted there:

They are certainly at a stage when they need all the feedback one can spare.
