This summer, business magazine Forbes called on their readers for submissions of the “best websites you know of for interns, job seekers, business owners, established professionals, retirees, and anyone else looking to launch, improve, advance, or change his or her career.”
After receiving almost 700 nominations, Forbes hand-picked what they believe are the most compelling and useful sites and created their inaugural list of the best career websites. We are very excited to be included in their list!
From the Forbes article:
This service, free for job seekers, allows applicants to sign up and get alerts either by email, text or through Twitter, when jobs have been posted in their field of interest, or when their Facebook and LinkedIn connections have links to job postings.

As a job seeker searching for their next great job opportunity, time is extremely valuable and you don’t want to waste any of it. Using your phone, you can now search for jobs while waiting in line or walking down the street.
The Android app has the same features that iPhone and iPad users have already been using. Take advantage of these features:

- Narrow down your search by role, industry, or location
- View jobs near your physical location – on a map or via an augmented reality overlay

From The Huffington Post
Arianna Huffington and The Huffington Post launched a new jobs related content section today called Opportunity: What is Working.
Just months ahead of a Presidential Election that will surely focus on the economy, jobs, and unemployment as main talking points, Huffington’s effort is described as a fundamentally bipartisan issue: ”what we the people can do to accelerate job creation and fill job openings.”
It’s no surprise that jobs reports and potential presidential election results go hand in hand, and we expect new initiatives and louder rhetoric to emerge over the next 3-4 months as voters’ views start to solidify.
The online recruitment and social recruiting markets are heating up at exactly the same time, and we’ll make sure to keep you updated on the latest emerging trends and initiatives that can help job seekers find new opportunities, and employers find new talent.
Keep the conversation going with us on Twitter @TweetMyJobs.
We live in a social world, but we also live in a mobile world. iPhones. iPads. Instagram. People are interacting with the world around them – through maps, photography, instant communication, and more. So why shouldn’t the job search and discovery process be mobile as well? It should be. And it needs to be more efficient.
View nearby jobs through the map feature.
That’s why we just released a new TweetMyJobs mobile app - turning your iPhone or iPod Touch into the ultimate job-searching tool.
The application allows job seekers to search by role, industry and location and view jobs nearby on a map or using an augmented reality overlay.
At once, the TweetMyJobs app is powerful for businesses and seekers alike. For businesses, it enables job distribution and branding in the palm of a job seeker’s hand. Walking down the street or in a crowded mall? No problem – there are jobs around you. For job seekers, the ability to find work in their immediate area and apply via a mobile device is a no-brainer. Seekers can also receive job alerts, where they want them, when they want them. And, of course, the app is free.
For businesses, large and small, the ability to generate “foot traffic,” and local candidates – whether you’re looking to hire a barista or cashier, accountant or nurse, business analyst or CFO – is a superb advantage over competitors that aren’t distributing their jobs and their brand into the mobile world.
Potential employees and employers can now use their mobile devices to find the right job match. Don’t be left behind.
