Hi There!

Wondering where the biggest places worth advertising new IT Jobs is presently? (I know GZ has a Jobs category) A few years ago it was Seek, but I am not sure if that is that is still the best option? Trademe Jobs seems relatively popular. 

We are looking for an Intermediate Desktop/Network Engineer in Auckland Central.

Cheers

Seek is currently my goto place.. quality an quantity seem better..

ofcourse i look at it from a seekers point of view rather than listing however.. 


what a shame the role would be a bit of a stretch for me to go for! ;)

Hi

Given I am looking for where job seekers go, based on what you are saying Seek seems a reasonable way to go. What do you mean a stretch?

maybe i'm personally over thinking the requirements for such a role, but ild say my qualifications and experience in some areas may be lacking for such a role!

I've had good success with TradeMe.  Not tried anywhere else.

IMHO Seek is still the number 1 place to look, but trademe jobs has grown in numbers recently so a very close second now.

I have used seek for years (I am an I.T. contractor so always looking for the next contract) and find it has more jobs, is updated more frequently, and whilst many jobs are also advertised on Trademe, there are enough roles that don't appear on Trademe that mean I use it as a distant second.

Plus I think seek has better integration with the whole watching/applying for jobs workflow.

I'm looking for an IT contract, I only use Seek. I used trademe jobs once, but I found it was just duplicates of what was on seek so I haven't bothered this time. I get most of my jobs through recruitment agents around town, some don't even appear on websites.

I have daily emails sent from both Seek and Trademe. Usually they're basically the same job list with only a couple of differences. I'm not really looking and usually just have a glance with my morning Coffee. 

If I'm actively looking, I'll trawl both sites in depth. I also get the odd message from LinkedIn/Seek with job offers (but they're usually just the recruitment agencies trying to get your details).
