8 of the Best Free Career Tools

Jobscan.co

The more effectively you tailor your resume for a specific job, the better your chances are. Generic resumes are unlikely to do well in an applicant tracking system (also known as an ATS). Using Jobscan, you can easily optimize your resume against any job description and make yourself a top candidate. You can also check out Jobscan's Learning Center for resume, cover letter, LinkedIn resources, and more!



LinkedIn

LinkedIn is the world's largest professional network with 706+ million users in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide. One of my favorite aspects of LinkedIn is the people directories. You can find a 'People' tab on the left-hand side (example). By clicking 'People,' you can access a self-reported directory of current and previous employees.



Glassdoor


Glassdoor includes a job board and salary estimates, company reviews, and interview reviews from previous employees. Think of it as Yelp for job searching - common interview questions, the CEO’s approval rating, employee satisfaction with benefits, and more.
