Cityjobs.com's aim is a simple one: to bring together employers in the City (and New York, Frankfurt, Singapore, etc) with what it terms 'high-calibre job seekers'. And while the internet is put to many inappropriate uses, this is one function to which it is admirably well suited.

All you need do is register yourself and enter an abbreviated CV on to the site. Then if you see a vacancy that you're interested in, you simply click on it - and your reduced resume wings its way over to the relevant person.

The site offers jobs in finance, IT and the media and typically offers something like 4,000 vacancies at any time.

So, no more furtive printing of application letters after hours. The only downside is that, as it is slightly overburdened with graphics and advertising, cityjobs.com tends to download rather slowly.
