– Their jobs come from thousands of sources including newspapers (no big surprise there given their ownership), recruiters, and even other online job boards.

– Their job search is free.

– The interface is straightforward.

– Their Advanced Search allows you to specify keywords, job categories and other criteria.

– They allow you to save your search criteria and will email job posts to you as they are added.

– You can exclude certain companies or keywords from the results (which helps you sift out the junk).

Pajama-Meter

Our search on CareerBuilder turned up 1043 hits for telecommuting jobs. Of those, only 16% were what we consider to be scams or junk*, but fifty percent of their legitimate posts were from 2 employers who include telecommuting as a company benefit on all their jobs.

For content, we give CareerBuilder a 4 (out of a possible 5) on our Pajama-Meter.

For ease of use, we award them a 5.
