Serious about landing your dream job this year? Or at least, landing a more fulfilling and higher paying job than the one you’re in now?

If you said, yes, then let’s do it! My last article in Huffington Post,2016 Hottest Jobs, Highest Paying Companies and Fastest Growing Industries, helped many of you identify the job role and industry where you want to work.

Now let’s focus on the next step which is how to find your dream job.

As you probably know, it can be daunting navigating through a kajillion career websites, job boards and niche communities touting the latest and greatest job openings. As a career coach, I even get overwhelmed! Never-the-less, every year I conduct loads of online research and capture the lessons learned and best practices from my clients to create a list of my favorite (and what, I believe, are some of the most effective and best) career apps and websites that can help you find your dream job -


Salary.com published10 Best Job Hunting Apps to Get You Hired“ which features apps to help make changing your career a snap including helping you stay organized, write your resume, and ace your interview.

One of my favorite on this list is JobMo which lets you search by location using Google maps in over 20 countries, find and apply for jobs listed on sites like Indeed, Simply Hired, The Ladders and Monster, as well as allows you to research companies and compare salary information.

SWITCH app - I love this cool, easy app! Available in the apple store and Google play, this app makes job searching fun by allowing you to search for jobs quickly from your phone. Simply swipe right if you’re interested in a job, or swipe left if you’re not interested. Employers and recruiters are automatically notified when a candidate is interested in their job. And, when recruiters and employers are interested in you(!) they’ll use the on-line chat feature to connect with you, set up an interview, etc. It’s simple, fast, and even eliminates the need for that annoying cover letter. :)

JobR app - another cool app that allows you to set up a profile, create and upload your resume and then search for jobs. This job search and resume app also has one more great feature - a personal “career concierge” to answer all your questions and point you in the right direction!

Want to know which career websites are best for job hunting? Forbes did all the heavy lifting by researching over 2,000 career websites, and then publishing their list of 10 Best Websites for Your Career.” This master list is not a ranking, but rather a roster that Forbes’ staff believes can be useful to all sorts of job seekers at varying stages of their careers - from executives to managers to interns.

I have three (3) favorite career sites from this list which include -

1.LinkedIn - Recruiters and hiring managers use LinkedIn more than any other website to connect with job candidates. LinkedIn is the largest professional social networking site and has more than +400 million members in +200 countries. People are signing up at approximately two new members a second! It is free to become a member and post a summary of your career and work history.

To find job openings, you can go to the LinkedIn Jobs web page and search by job title, keyword or company. You can also do an advanced search to include additional search criteria. On the Jobs page, you can also look for jobs under the sections for “Jobs You May be Interested In” and “Jobs in Your Network”.

For more tips on how to use LinkedIn for your career change I’ve found the LinkedIn - Jobs and Professional Services web page full of great tips and helpful recommendations.

2.Indeed - I’ve had many clients get hired off of Indeed. This is a Google-like search engine for jobs and one of the most efficient sites for surveying listings, since it aggregates information from job boards, news sites and company listings. An advanced search function allows you to drill down on a location, keywords and salary range. Indeed says it has 180 million unique visitors month. It’s available in 50 countries and 26 languages.

3. SimplyHired - Like Indeed, SimplyHired is a Google-like search engine for jobs and a quick way to survey a massive number of job listings, plus provides a salary estimator. The site, based in Sunnyvale, Calif., aggregates information from job boards, news sites and company listings. At last count, it had 30 million unique visitors a month. One cool feature of SimplyHired over Indeed: Job listings will display your LinkedIn connections to each job!

JobCase is a terrific resource if you don’t have a traditional resume or four-year degree, but have some job experience. Jobcase is an online community resource and advocate for the non-traditional workforce by providing job listings for hourly work and will even connect you to mentors.


Tip - The career apps and websites listed above are great resources to help you find your next job. I highly recommend that you bookmark, and create a job search agent on those sites that have jobs which most closely match your skills and passions so that you’ll receive instant notifications of jobs that interest you.

Here’s a little known fact from SmartRecruiters.com about finding jobs - 62-percent of jobs are posted on niche job boards. Reported in this special report Best 50 Niche Job Boards“ Smart Recruiters assessed thousands of sites listing job openings. I’ve had many clients get hired off Dice, Media Bistro and other sites featured on this list, so be sure to research these sites and bookmark those that most closely align to your skills, talents and passions.

A few more career websites on my list of favorites include -

GlassDoor - This is one of my personal favorite sites(!) that allows you to search for jobs, as well as research salaries and company reviews written by employees. Simply sign up (it’s free!) and you have a bucket load of research and reference materials available at your fingertips.

The Ladders - the site offers a basic membership for free. Also, for $25 per month, you’ll be able to receive (and apply for) executive and management jobs that pay $80,000 and above salaries. The site allows you to customize your job search so that you can quickly find job opportunities and recruiters based on your expertise, experience and skills.

Finally, if you think your dream job may include becoming a consultant or freelancer, you can test the waters by posting your skills and experience on these sites and letting the jobs come to you -

UpWork.com - great website to find part-time, short-term or freelance gigs if you’re a software developer, website creator, sales specialist, marketing guru, designer, writer, virtual assistant or have a variety of other business services skills.

OnForce.com - For temporary and short-term projects, check out this cool website comprised of thousands of national and regional companies that use OnForce to fulfill their workforce needs. Fill out a quick profile, and if your skills match a company’s needs, they’ll ask you to complete the registration process.

Freelance.com has 33,000 employers including Hewlett Packard, Microsoft, DHL, and more who hire contractors and freelancers on this site for temporary projects. Just fill out a profile and the site matches you up with job assignments that you can accept or decline.


Finally, if you’re in between career gigs and crunched for cash, then you may want to advertise your skills and expertise to potential employers on websites such as:Uber, SnagaJob, TaskRabbit, and Postmates. These sites offer marketplaces for anyone wanting to get hired as a driver, mover, courier, cleaner and basic chore-doer.

In future articles, I’ll share my tips and strategies on how to leverage your network for more job leads, referrals and recommendations... but for now, I hope this article helps illuminate your career path with more possibilities :)

In a world where everything which your computer can do, can be done on your smartphone, hacking cannot be left behind.

The world is full of smartphones these days. Most people rely on their smartphones and other portable devices to carry out their day to day activities. It won’t be an exaggeration to say that smartphones have taken over laptops in terms of productivity. Thus, it becomes extremely important to know about the (ethical) hacking tools available on your android phone. Who knows, you might need them one day!


Hacking, nowadays, is not something which is the exclusive domain of the “experts”. With the help of a few applications and basic knowledge of the true capabilities of your android phone, you, too, could delve into the world of hacking. So, let’s discuss some of the apps for your android phones which will turn you into a hacker!


1. AndroRat

AndroRat stands for Android Remote Administration Tool. As the name suggests, it is a remote administration tool which is used to control another device even if you have no physical access to that device! Manipulating other devices can be easily done using the app which is quite useful in case you’re away from your device and need it to perform some task. It is also useful in inducing some giggle and amazement amongst your friends and family members!

2. DroidSheep

The word “hacking” for many is hacking into your friend’s social media account for giggles. Or it may be used for even something useful like extracting some important information from someone’s social media accounts. DroidSheep does the job for you. It hijacks the sessions of social media activities carried out on your network. You need the knowledge of the basics of hijacking and by installing the app on your android device you’re all set to ‘hack’ your friend’s online social life!

3. Kill WIFI

This open source ethical hacking app is one of the most popular ones in this field. Similar to the net cut app in Windows, this app is capable of cutting off anyone’s WiFi over your network. Kill Wifi is extremely useful when you have an open WiFi not protected by a strong password. You can cut off the WiFi of the intruder by just a few clicks on your device. This app is easy to use owing to its lucid and interactive interface and easy-to-use tools.

4. SpoofApp

Won’t it be wonderful if you could place a call to your friend phone, but instead of showing your phone number different number flashes on your friend’s phone? SpoofAppis exactly what this app does. Apart from changing your phone number, this app can also change your voice and record your entire conversation! However, you will need SpoofCards to use this app. Overall a nice app for bringing smiles on your and your friend’s face.

5. WiFi Mac Changer

One of the most useful ones, Wifi Mac Changer app changes the MAC address of your device you make your activities almost untraceable. With your rooted android phone, you can change the MAC Address of your device temporarily so that your online activities cannot be traced back to you. The app provides you two methods of changing your MAC Address. One is the easier way which reflects no change in your WiFi settings. The other method is a bit tougher which allows you to enter apps which are password protected and this will reflect the changed address in your WiFi settings.



These apps may not seem very productive at a first glance but with prolonged use, you will certainly realize the potential that these apps possess. Who knows someday you may need to spy upon your friend’s/significant other’s social media account? Or you may need to kick off an intruder from your network. Thus, gear up for the path untraveled and watch your world in an entirely different light using these apps!

October was a relatively mellow month in terms of social media updates, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t any noteworthy announcements.

Vine’s demise was probably the most significant, along with news and a few changes from Facebook, Pinterest, reddit, and YouTube.

Here are the latest social media updates from October:


Some big changes are coming to call-to-action buttons on Facebook Pages, including new third-party and Messenger integrations. Facebook is also rolling out a new recommendation feature that could help more people discover your business Facebook.

facebook cta


Pinterest now has 150 million monthly active users globally – 70 million of whom live in the U.S.


Pinterest is giving advertisers even more new retargeting options. You can now create audiences based on the actions users take with your pins and the actions people take on your website.

pinterest retargeting


Reddit is launching ‘Interest Targeting’ into Reddit Ads, which would “allow advertisers to target audiences based on a handful of predefined interests (e.g. sports, gaming, music, etc.), which will be informed by which communities they frequent.


Twitter announced that the Vine app will be discontinued in the “coming months.” However, you’ll still be able to continue accessing and downloading your Vines.

Are you responding to your customers’ tweets on Twitter? If not, you could be losing out on revenue and loyalty, according to a new Twitter study. Customer service on Twitter has been recently enhanced thanks to new tools, too.



YouTube announced added a new feature that lets you add a thumbnail overlay to the end of your videos to keep viewers engaged. The feature, called End Screens, will appear during the last 5 to 20 seconds of your video.

“We are launching a new, optional video feature that adds visible text on the video for the first few seconds a viewer watches, informing viewers of a paid promotion,” YouTube announced. “Creators can also choose to add this text disclosure to any existing video without losing their view count or other video metrics.”

According to a new study by the Pew Research Center, 81 percent of supporters of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump disagree not only on their respective policies and plans but also on the “basic facts” surrounding the candidates and the election. The Pew Research Center stated that its survey was conducted online from Sept. 27 to Oct. 10 among 4,132 adults, including 3,616 registered voters, and was largely completed before the release of the 2005 Hollywood Access videotape showing Trump making lewd comments about women.

According to Pew’s website, this survey shows how “negative attitudes toward the opposition have become a defining feature of the current campaign.” While myriad reasons underlie this perfect storm of negativity, we should be aware of how and why the information we obtain through technology such as search engines and social media contribute to political polarization.

While many search engines exist, Google is far and away the most popular. In fact, its name is now commonly used as a verb. Google adjusts its “top-secret” algorithm - its 200-plus numerical ranking factors used to retrieve and rank information - more than 600 times per year. When an individual enters a search, the results are ranked based on factors such as the terms used, the responsive domain sites, along with their popularity, and how frequently the terms are used on that site, as well factors such as an individual researcher’s location, preferences, and search history. To provide a simple illustration, if I am a sports historian in Columbus, Ohio, conducting research on Heisman Trophy finalists and type “London” into my Google browser, I will likely retrieve highly ranked search results about London, Ohio, located approximately 25 miles southwest of Columbus, and the former home to Warren Amling, an All-American Ohio State football player and 1945 Heisman Trophy finalist. However, if I am a college student located in Raleigh, North Carolina, looking at travel sites for a post-graduation trip and I type in “London,” my highest-ranked search results will likely involve London, England, things to do and budget travel sites.


Scholars who have studied, and even those who publicly criticize Google, all acknowledge that the search engine excels in giving the individual researcher the information sought. In fact, despite the thousands of responsive pages that may exist for any given search, 50 percent of clicks tend to go to the top three items and 91 percent of searchers never go past the first page. In addition, once the researcher clicks on a link, that click illustrates relevance, thus possibly becoming a factor for results in future searches.

Let’s apply this phenomenon to the major party candidates in election 2016. Based on whatever iteration of the algorithm is used, along with the searcher’s location, preferences, and search history, the information retrieved is consistent with what the researcher anticipates finding and what he or she has researched in the past. In the political information realm, this phenomenon builds upon itself so that when supporters of Mr. Trump type in his name, they tend to see positive articles about him more highly ranked and negative articles about Secretary Clinton more highly ranked, and vice versa. Supporters of Mr. Trump are more likely to click on links that support their political views, showing relevance, as are supporters of Secretary Clinton. The end result is that the information obtained and read by the two opposing supporters, even when they use the very same search terms, may be vastly different. This clearly contributes to the polarization we are seeing - an 81 percent disagreement even on the basic facts about the candidates and their positions.

Similarly, the use of social media to obtain information has exploded. There are more than 300 social media sites that enable users to create and share and receive personal or professional information with self-selected friends or followers. In election 2016, both of the major party candidates are using social media - in particular Twitter where Secretary Clinton has 9.89 million followers and Mr. Trump has 12.6 million followers - to generate support. As an aside, similar to the verb “google,” Twitter now has its own verb “tweet.” Also similar to the search engine method of clicking on relevant information, the searcher who “likes” or “reacts” to a post or page, or enters search terms such as “bigly,” or “Wikileaks,” is rewarded with the appearance of more pages, posts or tweets that contain similar information.


When we consider the effect of the Google algorithm and social media in politics today, we shouldn’t adopt a conspiracy theorist attitude that there are nefarious activities or attempts by Google or any social media site to influence the election. Rather, this phenomenon of political information polarization is likely explained as the natural consequence of combining these newer forms of information gathering technology with the more traditional social psychology theory of motivated reasoning - whereby people tend to seek out information that confirms what they already believe.

On his blog site, Yale Law School Professor Dan Kahan illustrates motivating reasoning with the following example: “In the 1950s, psychologists asked experimental subjects, students from two Ivy League colleges, to watch a film that featured a set of controversial officiating calls made during a football game between teams from their respective schools. The students from each school were more likely to see the referees’ calls as correct when it favored their school than when it favored their rival. The researchers concluded that the emotional stake the students had in affirming their loyalty to their respective institutions shaped what they saw on the tape.”

It is natural to trend toward information that supports our beliefs and worldview but if 81 percent of voters cannot even agree on the basic facts involved in the election, this tendency, along with some of the information bias built into obtaining political information in today’s world, could be damaging to our country’s ability to reunite post Nov. 8. We will continue to be influenced by political information we receive through Google, social media and even newer technologies - of this we should be certain. This is not, however, necessarily negative. What we need to do is to understand the potential effect of technology on the information we obtain, view that information through a critical lens, and ensure we are always seeking alternative viewpoints - in other words, engage in critical research and analysis. In addition, we should consider the experience of political canvassers who have made successful strides, particularly in the past two elections, in opening voters up to new ideas and policies by engaging in genuine, and respectful dialogue with each other.

For the last week, about half of the SEJ Team has been in Vegas for Pubcon 2016. It was a fantastic experience filled with learning, networking, and events. This is honestly my favorite event of Pubcon week. Everyone gets a little (or a lot) dressed up and just has a good time.

This year’s event was held a Caesar’s Palace, right on the Las Vegas Strip. The event included a cocktail hour with open bar, followed by dinner, which was delicious, the awards ceremony, and then more networking.10 2016 2317

The Photo Booth (Yes, Really)

Dinner is tasty, the open bar is amazing, the ice sculpture vodka luge is always impressive, but my favorite part of the evening is getting in the photo booth with the SEJ team.photobooth1photobooth2

SEJ is a fully remote team, so I truly believe this opportunity to get to know each other and be a little silly is an important part of developing a strong team dynamic.


Each year, this event is paired with Pubcon in Las Vegas, which means attendees of the US Search Awards include some of the top influencers in our industry. Before and after the event I had a great time networking and meeting people I only work with online. I also managed to score a new Marketing Nerds podcast guest, which was one of my goals for the week!

I have to admit; networking doesn’t come particularly natural to me. Luckily, last week’s podcast was on just that. Listening to Kelsey, Debbie, and Amanda’s episode on the flight over was super helpful. If you struggle to network, I highly recommend their episode titled “How to Network Like a Boss”10 2016 2248

(CNN)UPDATE: Both Donald Trump and his campaign staffer Dan Scavino have deleted their tweets.

"A lie will go round the world while truth is pulling its boots on," London preacher Charles Haddon Spurgeon said in 1855, well before the invention of the Internet.
    A case in point just popped up.
    Let's explore.
    1) GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump tweeted at 2:28 pm ET Tuesday: "Unreal! Highly respected Senator Tom Coburn- said this about Cruz: https://t.co/2WswDhyPQD"
    Trump repeated the comments during an event in South Carolina as well.
    "Did you see the senator from Oklahoma that just came out with a statement? He came out with such a strong statement that Ted Cruz is dishonest -- he's a Republican! I've never seen a human being that lies so much," Trump said.
    2) What was the quote? Trump provided a link to a tweet stating the following: "He is, without a doubt, one of the most dishonest people in DC." @TomCoburn on Ted Cruz bit.ly/1oGZqI6Scavino
    It should be noted: that 12:21 pm ET tweet is from Dan Scavino, the Trump campaign's director of social media.


    3) Here's where it gets shaky: Scavino provided a link to a story on a liberal website "Forward Progressives" from October 18, 2015.
    In that story, a progressive writer pens the following: "I've made no secret of my total disdain for Sen. Ted Cruz. He epitomizes everything that's wrong with the Republican party. He is, without a doubt, one of the most dishonest people in Washington and, in my opinion, a complete sociopath."
    THIS is where the "one of the most dishonest people in DC" quote comes from -- not from former Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Oklahoma.
    4) Let us now, just for kicks, see where this all originated.
    The liberal writer quotes former Sen. Tom Coburn and links to a story in the Dallas Morning Newsfrom October 16, 2015.
    5) The Dallas Morning News had taken the quotes from BuzzFeed from October 15, 2015.
    6) BuzzFeed took it from Coburn in an interview with Pete Dominick on Sirius XM talking about the "Cruz Effect." Coburn criticized Cruz for "creat(ing) greater disappointment in the hinterlands" in terms of pledging to stop Obamacare, etc, "because you gave them a false hope, knowing that you couldn't accomplish it, but it was about yelling, and screaming, and waving the flag."
    At no point during any of this did Coburn say the initial quote about Cruz.
    The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    We may first see them on the runway, but the trends that truly stick with us all live in one place: our Google search bar. It's where we ask our deepest, darkest fashion questions — "Are cropped flares really a thing?," "Does anyone actually like baby bags?" — and hope to find answers.

    Last year, the search engine finally recognized the power that lies in its records, introducing a fashion report that documents which trends are in and out, according to search volume. In 2015, we saw the popularity of one-shoulder and peplum dresses fall, making way for tulle skirts and jogger pants. (This was the year of athleisure, after all.) For 2016, Google's calling out items we've already seen pop up in our closets — and those we could already sense falling to the back shelves. 

    This time around, the company expanded the scope of its research to include the U.S. and the U.K., looking into the top searched-for apparel categories between May 2014 and May 2016. In a somewhat surprising turn, some early-aughts trends appear to be on the way out, even though the '90s are very much in the zeitgeist right now (the two are close cousins, after all, and had been trending together). Google observed a steady decline in interest in drop-crotch pants, see-through clothes, acid-wash jeans, and babydoll dresses. It predicts asymmetrical skirts and waist trainers will experience a similar drop (despite constant Kardashian endorsement) over the next few years — something to maybe keep in mind during your next closet purge.

    The search engine grouped its findings into three main stories: military-inspired (think bomber jackets and biker pants), free-spirited (in line with the easy-going nature of off-the-shoulder tops), and ready-to-go (think one-pieces and rompers). Then, there are the specifics: Google identified a set of trends it calls "rising stars," which have seen a spike in interest over the past few months but might not have staying power. These include off-the-shoulder topsbodysuits, and bralettes. The lace-up top was also highlighted in this category for the U.S. market; for the U.K., it was the co-ord. On the opposite end of the spectrum are the "falling stars" — pieces that have enjoyed their moment and are now losing steam when it comes to Google searches. (Suede skirts, we're looking at you.)


    Google does point to certain categories it considers "safe bets" — both because they've seen more user interest and because they have seasonal potential to come back. In 2016, biker pants (skinny-fit trousers with ribbed and moto elements) and ripped jeans are looking to be a pretty solid choice, if you trust American and British Google users. The search engine also predicts bomber jackets, coatigans (a coat/cardigan hybrid), and shirt dresses will become even more ubiquitous as the year rolls on. (It's no surprise, then, that these trends are already featured prominently in Zara's fall '16 offering.) 

    The report, which you can read in full here, details the rise of each trend and corresponding item down to the color, fabric, and pattern that's proven to be most popular. Here's to going about your fall shopping in the most informed way, ever.
