Want to see where your Skills can get you hired?

Glassdoor, the Job Search and Career Advice Website, has launched a new feature of their site called Jobs Explorer. Praised by President Joe Biden, the site allows you to see where your skills or occupation could land you a job. Ever wondered if you could make more money as a teacher…in Texas? Or as a Welder in North Dakota? Using the data from Glassdoor’s job listings, you can now find out.

More Features include:

  • For dual-income households, Job Explorer also allows job seekers to determine the best location for the couple, based on two job searches at the same time.
  • …A career progression tool. Using Glassdoor’s resume database, it allows a job seeker to see what other jobs they may be qualified for based on others who have had the same experience.

YouTern’s Top 50 Blogs for Young Careerists

With all the career sites out there, how did we select these 50 bloggers?

  • First and foremost: the quality of the content; nothing is more important
  • Second, we value consistency: frequency of blogging, a constant voice, etc. (sadly, some of the best career bloggers don’t contribute consistently enough to make this list)
  • Third, we chose to eliminate those in the deep end of the self-promotion pool (a blog has to be more than a sales pitch)
  • Lastly, we selected those bloggers, regardless of their years of experience (yes, that means there are some old-school types on the list) whose advice is applicable to young careerists
