Sean, I'm really not sure what service *would* guarantee your next job. I'd
be pretty shocked if you found one on a free service like Monster; their IA
positions are a lot different than what most people on this list would
typically look for. The personal network will be a lot more useful for you,
for sure; in fact, getting involved with AIfIA could actually do a lot to
expand your personal network.
And not to open up the entire discussion of what value AIfIA is delivering,
but you'll get much more than a job board for your 40 bucks.
Sigh. Here we go again...
Anyway, thanks to Samantha and the others who volunteered their time and
effort to get this up and running. I've been dreaming about a job board
since ACIA days, so I'm personally thrilled and thankful to see that she and
her colleagues have made this a reality.
