6 Killer Newsletters to Power Your Job Search
Smart career advice delivered to your email inbox daily
Then, the Internet happened.
This digital void has allowed countless sites, apps and career experts to jump into the job search advice arena. There is so much great stuff available out there. Rather than providing a comprehensive guide, let's focus on the daily and weekly newsletters doling out strategy and tactics on the career front.
Here are six of my favorites:
1. Daily Muse You can't beat this daily newsletter from The Muse for smart news-you-can-use. Company profiles, career advice, job search tips and more in pithy, bite-sized chunks. Plus, they have a good job board as well as a growing site loaded with smart advice and great tools.
Killer feature: The Muse offers Muse University, 7-day classes delivered straight to your inbox. Each day features a quick lesson and assignment. These are smart, fun and free. I've taken the Networking, Management and Work Life Hacks classes and highly recommend them.
Killer feature: Virtual Networking and Online Career Fairs. Imagine talking to a dozen or more recruiters in an hour from the comfort of your own home. I attended a Brazen Online Career event and met virtually with several recruiters from top companies that led to real life connections and follow-up conversations.
Killer feature: Fast Company Leadership Daily is packed with intelligent advice that can supercharge your current job performance or make you better prepared for your dream job.
4. Careerealism The folks at Careerealism want to be your career wingman with “daily career tips, cutting-edge tools & expert advice.” This is one of the biggest (and best) newsletters out there.
5. Cynopsis For the cable and broadcast set, Cynopsis is a daily must-read with a daily job board. Plus, they've got specialized editions for what's happening in Digital, Kids and Sports. Don't let the decidedly lo-fi design fool you, Cynopsis is informative and comprehensive.
Killer feature: Classified Advantage is a weekly Cynopsis email with career advice and excellent mid- and senior-level broadcast, cable and agency job listings.
Killer feature: Mashable's Job Board is loaded with marketing, digital and social jobs.
