Dice.com calls themselves the “Career Hub for Tech,” and they are currently one of the most well regarded job search sites on the internet for people looking for jobs within the information and technology industry.
Unlike other job search sites that act as aggregates of job openings collected throughout the internet, Dice.com is a job search site only for jobs within the IT industry. Despite their very specific niche, however, Dice.com still lists over 85,000 jobs on their site.
And though 85,000 jobs may be small compared to bigger, better known sites such as Monster.com and CareerBuilder.com, since Dice.com is such an industry specific site, they still list jobs from some of the biggest and most well respected companies in the IT industry.
When searching for jobs, you can look by the date of job opening, a specific keyword, location, company, skill set, or even for telecommuting and travel positions.
Like other job search sites, Dice.com also always you to post your resume, receive email alerts about job openings, save jobs that you like to your account, and even follow updates on discussions in their forums.
But Dice.com is not just a job search site. They also offer a blog and a newsletter to which you can subscribe. These include articles about the tech industry in general, as well as tips and guidance on getting the job you want in the industry.
Finally, they also offer forums where you can discuss issues with other IT job seekers, as well as frequently updated posts that inform their members about current news and announcements made within the IT field.
6 ‘Dice.com’ Reviews
Honest to god best job search website out there
I don't understand why these other reviewers are lambasting Dice.com as a fraudulent hub for identity theft. I can only surmise that only those with severely negative experiences have been incentivized to post here. My experience with Dice was absolutely fantastic, I had been unemployed for nearly 2 months having applied to everything of interest on Indeed, Career Builder, and E financial careers. I was beginning to run out of options and decided to create an account on Dice and see if I could find something that all the other job search websites were lacking. Within a week of posting my profile I had three recruiters reach out personally to me for jobs that I thought I was clearly under qualified for. Let me emphasize that these recruiters were legitimate and coming from some of the largest recruitment firms in the US. I took up 2 of the three interviews that were sent my way and within that same week I landed a very ideal job after just 1 in person interview. I don't mean to bash on other job search sites but I've had a few recruiters from small firms contact me on Indeed for jobs that they weren't even able to help me secure an interview for.
Dice is shady
I applied for 3 jobs this morning, and since then my phone and email inbox have been blowing up from random people claiming to represent the jobs. One guy called from what sounded like a call center in India literally 30 sec after I applied.
If the job opening is at Wal-Mart E-Commerce, and it's listed on Dice, then why is someone from "Kutir Corporation" calling me 4 times in one morning, asking about my rates and personal info? They're not even a staffing agency: http://www.kutirtech.com/index.html
I get a very sketchy vibe from Dice - time to go back to SimplyHired and Indeed.
(And their search engine and resume upload are also horrible)
Site maintenance - very frustrating
Again the Resume upload is not working. Probably the key feature when looking for a new position is to post your resume. The "my resume" screens are unpredictable at best, some days they work other days you thrown into an endless loop of screens.
I question the legitimacy of this site
So I signed up with Dice because I'm looking for a new career. It seemed legit. The very next day I received an email that seemed promising. I responded that I was interested in the position and requested more information. I received an email response that asked about 12 questions. A couple of the questions were "What is your full name" and "What is your email ID". Well, 1) my full name is listed on the Dice account they accessed in the first place and 2) they emailed me the questions so they already had my email ID. I wrote back asking if they were serious. I have not heard back. I just received another email about another position. I responded and have not heard back. Dice seems to be a gathering of scammers and suspicious activity. Maybe not everyone on it, but so far it's been a joke. Even the "About Dice.com" article above is ridiculous. Just beware if you decide to use their site.
A Rep called 10 times every hour stating he was a representative and asked for my ssn and dob. I declined and received a call back in 30 mins with a different rep and stating I could email my ssn and dob. It is a scam
