RSSJobs allows you to "create and save searches for Monster, Dice, HotJobs,and more in one location, then delivers the results to your favorite RSS Reader."
Scott Reynen: "This utility will take a monster.com or hotjobs.com job search URL and produce an RSS feed of the results."

In today's News.Com article, Sam Ruby raises an issue, for the first time that I am aware of, about namespaces in the RSS directory. He says:
We've tried to be very inclusive. Basically the rule is, if it works with RSS 2.0, then it's included. To see if it works with 2.0, we look at the page describing the namespace, and if it claims RSS 2.0 support, we believe them.
As far as I know I have never "pointed out namespaces and said that they break interoperability."
Postscript: I've gotten some email on this, and I guess he means that I asserted that core elements should be used over elements in namespaces when they do the same thing. I don't think there's any question that that approach increases interop. "Break" is far too strong a word. Also, a reporter might not understand the difference, but I'm pretty sure Sam does.
