In closing, it's a message like the following one from another job seeker that lets us know that we're on the right track:
"I updated my resume and the next day had a message from an employer who had found my resume with your resume searcher. Within a week, I had a job offer in hand. I could not believe how easy your site made the process of signing up, posting multiple resumes and communicating with interested employers. Kudos! I recommend your site all the time to people who tell me, 'Jeez, I'd look for a new job, but the market is so bad.' They hear my story and I hope they head right to your site!"

MacBook Contest Winner Announced
Jennifer Gosselin of Vermont - our lucky MacBook contest winner - is happy to report that she recently landed a job with a former employer. Back when she was actively looking for work, Gosselin used JobsInVT.com daily, performing job searches by county.
"We didn't have a computer in the house and we've always wanted a laptop. It was so nice to win this, especially right before the Christmas holiday!" Jennifer said.
Gosselin said she really appreciated how easy the site was to use and how quickly she could see all of the jobs listed in her county. She stated she also liked the fact that many employers would keep job information on the site for more than just a few days or a few weeks which allowed her to look back at jobs she had previously applied to, for quick reference.
Congratulations Jennifer - for winning the MacBook and for getting re-hired! Looks like it's going to be a good year.
