Top 11 Blogs For Job Search 2012

Selecting my favorite job search resources wasn’t as easy as a I thought it would be! I visit different sites for different reasons. I value sites that have high quality and regularly updated information. I also greatly respect good writing and no fluff, so what you see below reflects my preferences!

Here are a few of my favorite things….

Top Job Search Resources

brown paper package

Quintessential Careers: This is a go-to source for sample anything (cover letters, emails and resumes!)

Job-Hunt.org: An authoritative site with information anyone in job search should know about! Go dig around this site for great advice.

Savvy Intern: No, it isn’t just for interns! Always great writing (especially from Mark Babbitt and Dave Ellis!)

The Undercover Recruiter: A long-time favorite for his straight shooting insight, Jorgen’s site now accepts guest posts from smart career and job search pros and recruiters! Get current info here!

Personal Branding Blog: It is so much more than personal branding! And although it is “branded” by Dan Schawbel, there are many talented contributors!

Solo Sites

These sites have a single voice! Over the years, I have become friends with these talented writers/authors and MUST give them a shout out! I hope you follow/subscribe/read them too!

Keppie Careers by Miriam Salpeter

Career Trend by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter Brand

Executive Career Brand by Meg Guiseppi

Honorable Mention

These are sites that I can’t fail to mention!

The JobMob by Jacob Share

The Wise Job Search by Harry Urschel

Glassdoor Blog (also use this site for its company intel!)

Who did I miss? Lots I am sure! But these are my favorites and go-to sources. Add yours in a comment!

    Sweet, nice to be included in the list. Don’t forget to include Career Sherpa!

    Hannah, while we are more-than-honored to be included, this list is not complete without mentioning your blog — and your hard work.

      @YouTernMark Thank you Mark!
      Putting this list together gave me a chance to reflect on the great relationships I made in 2012 and I am so glad to include you! Cheers to a great 2013! Would love to have a chance to meet in person!

    The best site I’ve ever seen for job search advice (no offense to the careersherpa, of course!) is Alison from AskaManager.org. Huge archives to answer all those questions.

      Good call, Kim. askamanager is doing great work over there, built a nice community.

      • careersherpa January 13, 2013, 2:50 pm

        @jacobshare  Yes, for sure askamanager is a wonderful, top listed resource! Thanks Kim for mentioning her site! (And of course, for visiting mine!)

    I’ve used quint careers and recommended it everywhere. My son would not have his terrific job without it. Now he’s a recruiter and recommends it to everyone he knows. Glad to see the recognition.

      @DeniGillespie Great to hear you and your son are fans too!
