Job.com is a job search website that’s referenced in quite a few other job search sites, but for some reason, I am not able to get there. Google shows this as a legitimate site, but I can’t get there even via Google.
I got there no problem… FF 3.5 on Mac OS X 10.6; my iSP is Rogers in Canada.
Can you ping it from a command prompt? (“ping www.job.com”) Have you checked your hosts file to make sure that “job.com” is not being redirected to a null IP address? Have you had malware that may have left an effect on your computer?
I’ll tell you, at least in my experiences, Job.com has a lot of bs listings. They’ve had the exact same HR job listing up (company confidential of course) for like this past year, and the job is one of those too-good to be true. 45k starting salary, requires no experience. Here most no experience type jobs start at 30 or lower even. I fell for one of their listings once and all I got was some company calling me asking me if I wanted to “get more education” even though it clearly said I was currently working on a masters degree.
So long story short, watch out for phony ass listings there.
I just tried pinging job.com and got no response. I remember reading that some hosts disable the ping response. However, the ping command mentioned an IP address (220.127.116.11). Can you get to http://18.104.22.168/ ? On my machine, that also returns the job.com website.

Understood - I’m wary of quite a few of these sites, and not being able to get to Job.com is not a killer for me, but it’s just annoying that I can’t get there - doubly so now that I know that others have no problem.
It seems that my computer is preventing access, but I don’t know why…
On preview, YES Sunspace, that worked for me - I got there! What’s causing that?
I can’t see it via browser, or ping it either. The IP address I’m getting is 126.96.36.199. Wonder if it’s doing some clever-ass DNS stuff where it delivers a different site depending on your locale* - or whether its DNS listings are all screwed. I’m in the UK.
