Tools are an essential part of the marketing, creative and digital job seeker’s journey to finding new opportunities that match their specific skills set. Here are some of our top tool suggestions to use in 2022:
This tool is employer-reported data which is more meaningful than employee reported data on platforms like Indeed and Glassdoor. Additionally, you can run reports and input custom information to adjust for specific pay factors. It’s not perfect but the information will give you a baseline.
Google Alerts allows users to set up notifications for specific topics or terms. Whenever that term is mentioned on the web, the alert will send a notification to your email address. You can use the alert to follow a company you’re interested in or be notified about a new job posting within a specific company. Here’s how to set-up Google Alerts.
As of 2021, LinkedIn has 760 million users — 40% of them are accessing it on a daily basis. LinkedIn has become one of the prime ways that professionals connect in a world where virtual influence now rules. From creating your own personal brand to finding the next best career opportunity for you, LinkedIn has become the way in which marketing, creative and digital professionals engage.
