Job Search Tools

Two days ago, Angela Grant wrote a post about her favorite job search tool, Indeed.com. Having been on the job hunt for some months myself (though no longer, I am happy to say), I thought I would share how I went about canvassing the job market.

Similar to Angela, I did make use of the advanced searches on Indeed. However, instead of signing up for email alerts, I subscribed to the RSS feed for that particular search. I repeated this process for searches on Journalism Jobs, Idealist.org, Craigslist and a few other job boards. I found this to be easier than email alerts because my inbox does not get cluttered with job alerts, and, using Google Reader, I was able to create a folder specifically for my job feeds that I could then search further by specific keywords (location, skills, etc).

Hopefully this helps you expand your job search and find the perfect job.
