FlexJobs

If you’re looking for a remote job, something with a more flexible schedule or even viable freelance work, FlexJobs is your job board. Not only is it the biggest game in town for telecommute options, the company hand-screens every job and company to make sure the roles they’re dishing up are high quality, professional and actually flexible (instead of just claiming to be),

FlexJobs has provided us with a special discount to offer new members. Use promo code JOBJENNY for a 30% discount on a 1-month membership, 20% discount on a 3-month membership and 10% off their 1-year membership.

ZipRecruiter

This is one of the most robust job boards available today, serving 7 million job seekers every month. While we don’t recommend making “search on job boards and blindly apply to openings” your sole job search strategy, it can certainly be a part of your overall efforts. ZipRecruiter makes it easy.

Loft Resumes

While it's (incredibly) important to have a clean, straightforward version of your resume at-the-ready for every instance in which you're uploading the document into an applicant tracking system (resume scanning software), there are occasions in which a highly stylized resume may help you seal the deal. Loft Resumes offers a bunch of eye-catching resume templates at a screaming $99 price point. Even better, they lay your resume into the template for you, so you don't have to fuss with it. This is a great option for people in creative, visual career fields.

Finding the Career That Fits You

Scott Barlow is truly one of the good guys in the career space. And he knows his stuff, inside and out. Scott launched Happen to Your Career a few years ago, after spending several years in the wrong corporate job (and nearly getting fired!)

He created a systematic plan to get himself out of that career, and into one that is much more fulfilling. He offers several courses and coaching programs to help other people figure out what fits, and launch a plan that gets them there, including a free, 8-day email course, Figure Out What Fits. (His podcasts are great, too!)
