Great Places to Find Job Search Advice

You’ve recently decided to look for a new job. Whether you are a veteran in the job market or a first-timer to the job search, looking for a job can be scary. Often, job seekers need advice for their search. There are thousands of resources online, but it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Where is the best advice for your career search?

Don’t worry! I’ve got you covered. I’ve compiled a list of some great places to find advice when starting your job search. Happy Hunting!

LinkedIn

LinkedIn is a great place to be not only during the job search but all the time. LinkedIn is a great way to connect with other professionals and build your network. It’s also a great place to get advice for your career search. Your connections can help guide you towards the right job, critique your resume, and help you learn how to optimize your career search.

Additionally, your connections may be in positions that you want. What better way to learn about the position than by connecting with someone working in that field? I’ve seen the help LinkedIn can bring to the career search in my previous experience as a job seeker. I was able to use my connections to find out more about the fields that interested me.

The Muse

If you are anything like me, you like to read anything and everything you can for advice. The Muse is the perfect place for that! The Muse is a great resource for job seekers, new and experienced. They provide information on top companies and jobs they offer.

They also offer great career advice articles. There are tons of articles about the job search, covering topics on positions available, resumes, and interviews. The Muse is a great place to prepare for your job search and get the information you need to succeed in your search.

Glassdoor

When applying for jobs, I like to know the company I’m applying for. While looking at the company’s website can give me information about their business, it doesn’t give an inside view of the company's culture. That’s where Glassdoor comes in. They have a growing database of company reviews, salary reports, and interview questions and reviews. The information about the company comes from the people who know it best- the employees.  

As a job seeker, being able to look up information on the company you’re applying to can be a huge help. You know what the employees' think about the company, salary expectations, and how to prepare for the interview.
