10 Best Blogs To Follow For Job Seekers

You’re looking for a new job. You’ve tried to find some sound advice online, but seem to be hitting dead ends at every turn.

Worry no more!

Here are the 10 best blogs to follow if you’re searching for a job.(In my humble opinion, of course!)

In no particular order:

1. Social-hire.com

This is a comprehensive blog. You get advice on job search & careers, as well as seeing the tips and advice that recruiters are being given. Seeing both sides of the fence can be very helpful when you want to stand out from the crowd!

2. Jobsite’s Worklife blog

The Worklife blog is a useful resource to see what advice the job boards can offer. A particularly quirky addition is the “Be My Interviewer” page. You can take part in a virtual interview, with an interviewer of your choice. Do you fancy being interviewed by Duncan Bannatyne or Ruth Badger? Give it a go, it might be helpful!

3. Winning Impression blog

Katrina Collier really knows her stuff when it comes to using social media and technology in your job search. She also offers some great services for job seekers and companies alike. There’s a lot to learn from visiting the Winning Impression blog!

4. Simply Hired blog

Although not very visually appealing, there is a lot of great information here for you to digest.

5. Guardian Careers blog

This blog is as comprehensive as you would expect from a major publisher! You’ll not be able to digest everything in one go, but well worth following!

6.Careerealism

Lots of great articles and some free templates for you to use!

6. Bubble Jobs

Very well set out and “nice on the eye”. It’s not just a good design, there is some great advice to follow here too.

8.Totaljobs Careers Advice

Another blog from a major jobs board. Not only careers advice though – they also offer articles on “life at work”, “unemployment advice” and “Money & Legal”

9. Undercover Recruiter

A very popular blog for job seekers and recruiters alike. They have a nice, fresh approach and you’ll see lots of thought-provoking posts.

And last but not least………

10. tonymelling.wordpress.com !!

What sort of self-respecting blogger wouldn’t include their own blog in a top 10 list?! You’re already here, so thank you for visiting!

I’d love to get your thoughts on the 10 sites listed above.  If you don’t agree  with any of them, let me know below!
