Additional Job Boards
Unlike job posting boards, aggregators search the web for you, and show results based on various places on the web such as job boards and company websites - they're like Google but just for jobs. As such, you will likely see many of the same postings across these different sites. However, each uses slightly different search algorithms, so you may see unique postings on each as well. Aggregators are excellent at providing a high volume of postings, but may lack the exclusivity of niche or industry-specific job boards.
