Well, I tried

and the hits are for the top levels of the job sites, not individual jobs.

So, say I were looking for a job* this seems to leave me needing to search
the job sites using their own (crappy) search, or manually using Google to
search within each site in turn. Whereas what I would want is once useful
search. Sort of like a "Google jobs" (as someone else had suggested. If
such a thing were to exist)

* please note, I'm not looking for a job. You can tell when I am because a
  sig appears with my CV. Now, if you want to find my CV, Google gets you to
  it rather easily. Then again, maybe I should include it more often, as it's
  not the highest "Perl" "CV" yet.
