Simply Hired and bunch of other small search engines came-up with the idea of scraping employee ads from company websites, and started aggregating them on their “vertical search” engine site, along with listings from other “job sites.” Now comes news that Yahoo’s Hot Jobs will do exactly the same.

Meanwhile, Jobster has “consolidated’ with WorkZoo!
