In September, Forbes published a list of 75 career-related websites they believe deserved special recognition. I appreciated that the authors chose many different types of sites. Within the list, you will find job boards (general and industry-specific), blogs, career coaching websites, etc. I particularly like the author’s recommendation to routinely look at industry-specific job websites (i.e. Dice.com for tech jobs, idealist.com for Non-Profit, mediabistro.com for media jobs) in addition to general sites (indeed.com, monster.com). Here is the entire list.
The list is quite extensive and my clients and I use many of the sites. It’s hard to narrow it down, but a few of my favorite sites are below:
- Glassdoor – the user-written ‘inside scoop’ on interviews, company culture and salary
- Indeed – this job aggregator is easy to use and efficient for keyword-based job openings
- LinkedIn – the sheer volume of members and ways to connect with individuals makes this site extremely valuable whether you are an active job seeker or not
- The Wall Street Journal Careers site – there is an immense amount of free career content for individuals looking for a new job or looking to advance in their current career path
The internet is full of websites individuals can access for career information, new jobs, tips/techniques, etc. including our online career counseling center. Forbes did a good job identifying 75 websites that can be particularly helpful. What is your favorite site from their list? Which website is missing that you find particularly helpful?
