I’ve never been the biggest fan of job boards, recruiters get lazy and for the most part they attract a lot of desperate job seekers. However, recently I’ve really been warming up to Career Builder- I’d date them over Monster any day. Especially after they created BrightFuse, a free professional networking site for professionals of all ranks and backgrounds — from interns to electricians to CEOs.Richard Castellini, VP of Consumer Marketing for CareerBuilder, said,"We looked at social networking...and we saw that it's something that's not going away, and that CareerBuilder should be involved with and understand it, so we launched BrightFuse. What's always been the number one way for people to recruit is referrals, which is essentially networking, and it makes sense for us to provide our job seekers with a platform for which they can develop themselves from a professional standpoint."They get it.MSN posted this article last week by Anthony Balderrama, CareerBuilder.com writer10 Sexy Careers you never thought ofHere’s Anthony’s List:1.

  • Of course we can't forget our back of house and front of house support crew of cooks, dishwashers, food prep, servers, bartenders, hosts and so on ... where would we be without them?
  • Totally would add Americorps volunteers or City Year. So much energy for volunteers. Of course on the cool side, living in Colorado, you can't leave out ski patrol or lift operators!
  • awesome additions to our sexy list!
  • Sommeliers. Even sounds sexy, but I might be biased...
  • Travel Consultant

    I always thought "hotel concierge" had a sexy name for a job.
