Recommended job search resources

- Websites: I recommend subscribing to or following several career-related websites for news and content. Some of my favorites include The Muse, Idealist Careers, and Forbes Careers. Another great website for your job search is Jobscan, which helps you optimize your resume and cover letter for specific jobs.
- Books: My blog post My 5 Favorite Job Search Books lists some of my favorite career related reading.
Networking and events
- General: Eventbrite, Meetup, and Facebook are all good resources to find events and networking groups aligned to your areas of interest.
- Social Impact focused: Net Impact and the Impact Hub are two organizations with chapters or locations in cities across the country and the world, and are great networks to meet like-minded professionals.
