Finding a new job can sometimes feel like full-time work. You have to update your resume, write cover letters and keep your fingers crossed for a callback.
Whether you're re-entering the job market after a leave of absence, or seeking a better fit with a new company, the Internet is the best tool in your job-hunting arsenal.
I've combed the Web looking for the best places to start your job search. Here are five sites to kick your job hunt into high gear.
Kick off your search with Indeed. It claims to be the biggest job site in the world, with about 500,000 new listings posted on the site each week.
Indeed's search works a lot like Google. Find jobs by typing the keywords into the What/Where box at the top of the page. You can narrow or widen your results by clicking Refine your search.
Save searches and have Indeed email you new job leads every morning that match what you're looking for. You can also use the handy Indeed app.
Be sure to check out the upload resume feature. It converts your resume into a webpage with a unique link, making it easy to share with prospective employers.
