    "Linkin is a great tool that gives me access to people other sites don't, I had personal interactions with people in my field and received good insight into the job market in different areas of the country. I've connect with lots of people in my industry and have gotten tips, feedback and industry insight from many different people and that has been a really interesting and valuable information to me and is definitely a good source for jobs that haven't been advertised."

    "Indeed allows me to find jobs in my area. I can post my resume so people can find me and not just rely on me finding them. Indeed also lets me search by specific jobs to help me find the type of work I am looking for."

    "Monster is the best place I've found for being successful on my job hunt. I thought I had it all together and would find a job pretty quick, but it wasn't until I checked out all the resources that monster.com has available (and it's free!). I found that my resume was totally wrong for what I was going after; they have great resume advice. I also found communities of like-minded folks in my field who I've been able to reach out to for more information. Between that and all the other features (company profiles, salary info, benefits info, and so many other things), I feel like monster.com is my one-stop shop for building my career into something really great. Thanks Monster!!"

    "I love Simply Hired! It is a great resource when looking for jobs. It allows me to see what I should be paid for my position in my location. At the same time it allows to search for local jobs, as well as jobs in other cities, when I decide to relocate."

    "I was so sick of being broke and I needed to find a job but didn't know how until I found Sherri Thomas Career Strategist. I was able to download her free ebook and it changed my life drastically. She inspired me to do better with myself so that I can bounce back and do better for myself. Now I have a full time job grossing over 68,000 a year though the journey wouldn't have been possible without Sherri."

    "I found the Career Builder app to be fantastic! The ability to search through jobs and also save them as favorites for later was as helpful as ever. Also the ability to upload my resume and use the app on my phone or tablet was a lifesaver."

    "This link is a great resource. I used it while looking around in my job search, and it contained several links to job listing websites. I have applied to over a dozen different jobs thanks to this, and even have had a few callbacks. Use it!"

    "I would highly recommend Idealist for anyone who's looking to find non-profit jobs, volunteer work or internships. It has a wealth of listings on their site that you're just not going to find anywhere else. And they're also legit."

    "I found this book invaluable in terms of helping me how to search for a job more efficiently. You'd think searching for a job online was easy, but the book has all sorts of tips and tricks I didn't know about. I have recommended it to anyone looking for a job."

    "Niche Job Boards is a great tool for finding alternative job postings that fit your skillset. Simply review the different job boards available, find one (or a few) that you feel would be best suited for you, then review their offerings! When searching for a job, it never hurts to check ALL available resources - you never know where you will find your best fit."

    "I like the interface of the app, and as someone who is currently looking for work, it is useful for me, even if it does just pull jobs from one specific site. I am not a huge fan of the name of the app, I almost skipped over it because of my dislike towards twitter."

    "LinkedIn Profile Photo FAILS. What NOT To Do! is sort of a resource for finding a job. It does tell you how to present yourself and what not to do when setting up a profile on LinkedIn. This information has helped me in picking the appropriate picture for my profile."

    "It's a good resource for those looking to break in to the industry. StarNow Audition Finder will remind you when an audition is coming up and maybe that is the reason you will get a job or two. I know that at least one of mine is a direct result of having the app downloaded."

    "This app is good if you're looking to rehearse for acting jobs before your audition, but not necessarily for hunting for them. It gives you coaching tips and recommendations once you've snagged that audition. As far as finding any job, you probably should use another app for this purpose."
