        Job Hunting On The Net
 Some of that information
  is, of course, devoted to
  job hunting – and it is
  increasing along with all
  the rest. In 1995, there were
  just 500 job sites online; in
  1998, an estimated 100,000
  sites had some job listings or
  job information on them. 1
 Job hunters' use of the
  Web is also increasing. One
  measure of this: In 1994
  there were 10,000 resumes
  posted online; in 1998, there
  were 1,200,000. I would
  guess that means that about
  2,000,000 job hunters are
  online during a typical month.
