Career and job tools assist and advance your job and career goals. Take resumes as just one example. A resume is a tool. A software program or a person that helps you write your resume is a tool. An application or service that delivers your resume is a tool. A career coach is a tool. Job sites are a tool. LinkedIn is a tool. There are so many tools that you can't afford to not know what they all are, which ones will work for you and how to use them.
In this Group we'll discuss the following and MORE:
- What tools do you use and why?
- What are the best and most useful tools and why?

There was a question below about websites. The clients I've worked with in creating their resumes generally have found the most/quickest success on LinkedIn/jobs. Second would be indeed.com. Generally indeed.com has all the jobs that are found on monster, careerbuilder, and the other main sites. Also with LinkedIn you can try to network with key contacts at the company. Many times, you are just 2-3 contacts away from the person you want to meet. You can have one contact intro you to another and (hopefully) get your foot in the backdoor.
"Millennials Continue To Buck Trends By Building Careers On Social Media" This article is so fascinating to me. As a Millennial, I feel like the only way to be successful is to connect with others and work to make a difference in the world, but I often forget that social media was something that generations before us did not have and did not use it when they were looking for jobs or even working for majority of their young adult life. It must be so confusing for other generations to understand the importance of social media to millennials. How in the world could something like Facebook make an actual difference in the world?
