There are a TON of sites out there to submit jobs and it could become quite expensive to submit to all of them. Any ideas on which are the most effective ones when trying to recruit Windows / MSSQL sysadmins / system engineers?

Thanks in advance.

hire a local headhunter/recruiting type company. Let them worry about where to post etc. All you need to pay for is the commission of finding someone. You also don't have to wade though the bull applicants. Better companies only need commission after they find someone for you. – cwheeler33 Apr 22 '11 at 22:27
"All you need to pay is commission", but that's 20% of first year salary! i don't think we can shoulder that kind of expense right now – Jorge Guzman Apr 23 '11 at 2:20
As an update I ended up using Monster + VentureFizz. Thanks for the replies. – Jorge Guzman Apr 23 '11 at 2:20

Stackoverflow Careers is still heavily (almost exclusively) for programming jobs, not system administration. – Ward Apr 22 '11 at 17:03
We can change that... Post some sysadmin jobs. – Tom O'Connor Apr 22 '11 at 21:16

How about our very own?

Seems too obvious, but seems to do the trick just fine. is also a good one.

Do not forget about Craigslist. Lots of junk but a lot of talent browsing Craigslist as well. My last two jobs were from Craigslist ads. If your company does not have the time, contacting a talent agency will help as they have databases full of talent.

I agree, which is why I said a lot of junk. However, you will be surprised how many people use it to land jobs. – xeon Apr 22 '11 at 18:03
