Websites to Enhance Your Job Search

Websites_WebIn today’s ever-changing workplace, it seems like new websites pop up every day designed to help you find that perfect job.

These websites range from typical job board listings to organizational, time management tools. Even better, you don’t have to be tech savvy to use these websites as each are designed to be user-friendly.

We’ve listed five of the best websites that can help you find opportunities, track tasks, manage time, and help set goals.

1. Re.vu – This website allows you to create a visual resume, a radical new way to present your skills. Visual resumes are a new trend that use pictures and images to enhance a traditional resume. Re.vu also has an interface that allows you to use your LinkedIn profile to generate personal infographics.

Be aware, however, that some companies may not accept visual resumes. This is best for smaller companies that use an applicant tracking system.

2. Plaxo – Need a way to keep track of all the contacts you meet at networking and job fair events? Plaxo is an easy way to combine all your contacts into a single, online address book that’s secure, organized, and available on whatever device you use. In addition, the website sends automatic updates from your contacts who are Plaxo members and removes duplicate information on contacts.

3. Rescue Time – It’s so easy to get caught up in the daily tasks and digital life when you are job seeking. From sending emails to updating profiles to visiting job boards, it’s easy to lose track of time without having anything to show for it. This website has features that identify inefficient behaviors, lets you create goals like spending less than an hour a day on social media to help you become more focused, and alarms to tell you when your allotted time on a task is up.
Detailed reports show which websites you spend the most time on, how productive you were, and whether you achieved your goal. It’s a detailed analysis that will help you manage your time better.

4. CareerJet  – This job-consolidator website claims to scan more than 58,000 job websites daily, and is available in more than 50 countries and 20 languages. It also saves you the trouble of muddling through hundreds of job sites by aggregating the information. Furthermore, it’s broken down into easy job categories ranging from public sector to engineering to tourism, travel, and hospitality.

Careerjet uses smart agents that scan the web and identify job listings from small recruitment agency websites which may only display a few jobs, to larger job boards that feature thousands of jobs.

5. LifeTick – A web-based, goal-setting software that helps you set, track, and reach your goals in life, LifeTick asks users to begin by listing their core values and what is important to them in their life and career. Then, the software uses technology to help you stay on track, offers an online journal, tracks any areas to help develop successful habits, and charts your progress so you can see your achievements.

Constructing your own career growth plan as a job seeker is an important step, and we hope these websites help you create that plan. Do you have favorite websites that help you with time management, goal setting, or job hunting? Share your picks in the comments section below.
