>> 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
