New Sites Promise More 'Scientific' Method To Job Hunting

The job search has long been an inexact science. You send out a blitz of resumes, network with everyone you know, and keep your fingers crossed.

But several new, job-search sites are claiming to be bringing more precision to the process, using Google-like technology and elaborate algorithms. Two recently-launched services, Bright.com and Path.To have joined others like Burning-Glass.com, LinkedIn and a few state employment offices, which have algorithmic-based job search portals. All of them use job hunters' personal data to match them to job vacancies that they are best suited for.

Could it be that you'll no longer have to send out blind resumes? Since Monster.com and HotJobs gained prominence a dozen or so years ago, search engines have been part of job hunting, but this crop of new sites claim to offer a more targeted approach that will ensure more success for job seekers.
