Career Eyeball minutes; unique visitors; hits; unduplicated traffic. — These are concepts the big board sales reps have thrown around in sales presentations, placed in marketing brochures, and geefully shared with the street on quarterly conference calls. Let’s finally take a look at the “Market Share” of these titans in the Employment & Training caregory of Hitwise based on Visits over the last 3 years. (A $30K plus investment for such data – but well worth it).My reactions:

Good job Careerbuilder and Yahoo staying even – now if I could only afford your new pricing
Monster – ummmm – what happened!!! ( well those in the industry do know that answer)
Indeed – congrats!! you are proving that the Employment Search Engine model is growing and you are poised to overtake Monster in the months ahead……..
