Advantages lots of jobs, make your CV searchable
Disadvantages employers can search you
I may start another round of job hunting, so update my CV and upload onto some web sites. www.monster.co.uk is one of them chosen by me. I used this web site before; I got some phone calls and emails from employers talking about job opportunities. Although at the end I did get the job from them but generally I think it's a good job site, with lots of information, and now the user experience seems better than before.The main page of the web site is quite clear and friendly, with the navigation tabs telling you that you can sign up with them and manage your monster, search jobs, upload your CV and get career advice.
The first thing I did is to search jobs to see any possibilities in my working area. There are almost all the sectors of jobs you can choose from the list either by one or by multiple choices. Yes, there are lots of jobs listed in my area so I started to register with them.

There are several benefits for signing up them:
1. You can have your CVs and covering letters online.
2. You can make you CVs searchable for their registered employers, which can increase the opportunities.
3. They can filter the possible jobs and recommend them to you.
4. You can quick apply jobs through the web site.
5. You can review your job application history.
Once you got an account, you can login and start managing your profiles. You can edit that information you entered during account creation in My Account page. Personally I think this page is designed very nice, your information is divided according to sections and you can edit them separately. In My CVs page, you can manage your CVs. You can provide more than one CVs on the web site and I found it's very useful as for different types of job applications you may need to give different CVs. Like mentioned before, you can choose different means to make your CVs online and I prefer upload my word format CVs. If you have one in your disk and in word format, that's great just upload it. If not, you can choose to create a online CV with them, they provide forms you can fill in and the result will be displayed nicely by sections. Actually if you want, you can upload your own and create an online one. Different employers may prefer different formats.I would say they manage the uploading CVs much better than before.
