My latest Memphis Daily News column is out, “Free Tools to Help With Your Job Search” In it, I outline the best free tools to use for your job search.
This week, I had the pleasure of interviewing Mike Steinerd from Indeed.com. Indeed is the No. 1 job site worldwide with over 140 million visitors per month. We talked about everything from how fast you should apply for a job to companies you should consider if you’re looking for work-life balance.
The conversation made me think. Often, the current online application process companies use creates barriers for candidates. It often feels like you’re sending your resume into a black hole – never to be seen again. Much of my philosophy is built around helping job seekers get around this difficult online process.
But, on the flip side, Internet technology also opens more doors for us than ever before. There are a number of excellent free resources available for job seekers today that didn’t exist 15 to 20 years ago.
