    Big words like Optimist tend to confuse many people because they are not part of their everyday vocabulary. Basically, use the KISS standard and keep it simple.

    You are kidding, right?
    Optimist, optimistic, optimisim are words used all the time in news reports about the economy etc. Sports people are optimistic about their chances etc.

    Maybe it's a cultural thing. Down here most school kids at about 10yo and 11yo go through a program called Waterwise where they learn to sail an Optimist so they know the word from that and then just learn the original meaning.

    I'd go with joboptimist
    applytodayjobs sounds very ESL and the kinds of jobs you apply for immediately are the crap, minimum wage jobs. The good jobs require some thought, a customised cv, a proper appllication letter and are jobs for those optimistic about their future and the future of the company they choose to work for.

    I am leaning towards JobOptimist myself. Although ApplyTodayJobs has some urgency in it which can be good.

    I didn't purchase a domain name over the last 4-5 years, I couldn't believe how freaking hard it is to find ANYTHING half intelligent or good sounding. And I am not about to pay $5K-10K for a one word domain name not knowing if the site is going to take off. It's maddening to see all these people sitting on good domain names in hopes they can sell them for a big buck. Just drop them stupid. Nobody is going to pay even 3K for a domain name in this environment (you know, constant algo updates, crazy competition, over-saturation, etc.).

    I also prefer the JobOptimist.com one as it sounds better to me. But you should also think for which market are you going to use that domain, UK, US, etc. And maybe check what is more popular there. For example, I have checked and found one available - JobSearchUK.org but it's only for the UK. It's not the best, of course, but at least it has over 15,000 keyword searches per month which is a really good start. One other is JobSearchOptimist.com which has the "job search" keyword in it and it is searched over 202k times per month. But as I said earlier I don't know what is exactly your goal. You are right that nowadays it's really difficult to find a good domain name as many people are only registering to get some crazy profit, but 90% of them or even more, are just wasting their time and money. But that is the situation these days.

    I would also prefer JobOptimist, it has the word "job" as the beginning so it's more value than other (in Job search niches). IMO
