What about Craigslist?

How can anyone possibly write an article about job-hunting online and not mention Craigslist? It’s no longer the open secret it once was—Alexa says Craigslist is the 34th most-visited web site on the Internet (although Netcraft doesn’t concur)—so how does one explain the omission? Because it’s informal? Because it offers other services? Because the article is little more than a listicle with padding?
