New Tech Aids Young Job Seekers

Comments Off on New Tech Aids Young Job Seekers 01 May 2011

As job hunters, we often find that sending out a slew of one-page resumes and carefully tailored cover letters frequently leaves us with little to show for it. But as technology shifts, job hunters are finding new ways to get dream jobs.

We’ve all used these fancy new tools: LinkedIn, Career Builder, Monster. But how many of us have had much success?

For those of us who already spend a large amount of our time on the social networking site Facebook.com, a new application, Branchout.com, as first reported by the New York Post, aims to make your social network better serve your business network.

The app uses your social networking contacts to compile a list of companies where you can best target your job search.  Unlike LinkedIn, Branchout does not allow you to network with complete strangers.

Flexjobs.com connects job seekers with telecommuting jobs, part-time jobs and other jobs that you can do from home, as reported by CNN Money earlier this year. For a monthly fee, a team of experienced researchers will scour online job resources in search of your perfect match.
For you more traditional job seekers out there, author and career coach Vickie Salemi offers advice on how you can find your dream job in New York in an interview with ABC News.
