Brian Tong shows off the best Web sites and gadgets to speed up your job hunt.

>> Brian: In our current economy many of you are job hunting. I'm Brian Tong from CNET.com and I'll show you how to make your job search a little easier with a few tech tools and tips. ^M00:00:10 [ Music ] ^M00:00:18 >> Brian: Now you've heard of CareerBuilder.com and Monster.com but Indeed.com is one of the best and simple job search sites just type in the job you're looking for and it searches online job listings and newspapers in your area. The Killer feature allows you to filter by salary because only you know how much you're worth. Now another site called Linkup.com is different because it helps you find jobs that aren't necessarily listed on the larger websites it searches by job title on over 19,000 individual company websites saving you a whole lot of time. Everyone needs to freshen up their resume or build a new one so we have Resume Maker here; this guy is jam packed with features, it's free to try out and $40.00 to purchase. It helps you build a resume with different templates for different industries there's a job search tool, salary negotiation advise and it's online component posts your completed resume to about 80 different websites. Another option for resume building check out Kinetic Resume it guides you through the process, offers suggestions and spits out a resume to be proud of, Kinetic is free to try out and $50.00 to buy. Now instead of making a trip out to Kinko's to print out all your resumes you can invest in this guy it's the Canon Pixma IP2600 Printer you can find this online for under 50 bucks and it's great for text and even photos. Investing in a quality printer at this price is just worth it. Now, for the person who is job hunting non-stop and absolutely can not miss a call; this is the Turbo Charger from TC2 and it's about $25.00 and it's a universal phone charger it comes with all these different connectors so it's pretty much compatible with every phone you can think of. It runs on double A batteries and it has a flashlight on one end here and then if I flip the switch down it becomes an indicator to show you how much backup juice you have left. Now get out there and get a job and you can thank me later. I'm Brian Tong with CNET.com. ^M00:02:15 [ Music ]
