Recommended job search resources

  • Assessments: I recommend and use Gallup’s StrengthsFinder Top 5 assessment. It is low cost (just $20), easy to take online and will give you specific, actionable feedback on your strengths that can be very helpful in your job search. Another free assessment I recommend is the VIA Character Strengths Survey.
  • 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.  
  • 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
