5 best job search sites

Education | 2011.04.18 09:46 | Posted by 스마트 안전보건

These are 5 best job search sites in USA, including Indeed, Craigslist, Dice, Monster, and LinkedIn.

1. Indeed

Indeed gets over a billion new job searches every month, and many people refer to it as the Google of job searching. The site allows you to post your resume, search jobs in your area, apply to thousands of opportunities from multiple job listing sites, newspapers, corporate websites, and job boards.

It has one of the largest job listing databases on the web, and does a great job of filtering out duplicates and removing spam.

2. Craigslist

Craigslist isn't just good for finding an apartment or selling your old gear. According to a number of you, Craigslist is also great for making real personal connections with people who are hiring for positions in your area.

Your mileage may vary based on locale, but it's more likely that when you respond to the job listing you'll actually strike up a conversation with the hiring manager instead of a recruiting firm. If you do apply for a job on the site, you might want to follow these tips for applying for a job on Craigslist.

3. Dice

Dice is one of the most popular job search sites for technology careers on the Web. If you're looking for a job in tech, entry or senior level, initiate or experienced, Dice is one site that should be part of your job search.

The site has thousands of tech jobs listed from some of the country's biggest companies like Hewlett Packard, Google, and Microsoft. If you're not looking for a career in technology however, there's likely not much at Dice for you.

4. Monster

Monster is a job site that often elicits about equal parts love and hate. Many of you expressed love for Monster's massive database, but hate for the sheer amount of spam posted and how difficult it is to actually get your resume in front of someone instead of casting your net wide and applying to everything available.

The site features millions of job postings, hosts the resumes of millions more, and has mobile apps for the iPhone, iPad, and Android.

5. LinkedIn

LinkedIn is a social network designed to help professionals build a network of coworkers and associates. Recently, LinkedIn has added features like status updates and corporate profiles. While it does have job listings, its focus isn't on using them to get hired.

Instead, potential employees are encouraged to connect with the company, leverage their own professional connections, and connect with other people in their field or at the company they want to work before sending in an application.

5 web applications to save time at work

Creativity | 2011.04.16 01:16 | Posted by 스마트 안전보건

These five free online tools make your work at offices better, faster, and more efficient.

These are simple, clean, and built to knock out those cumbersome work tasks, no downloads required.

  1. Zamzar

    1. There are few things more frustrating than receiving an important file that you can’t open. Zamzar is an online tool that can convert a wide range of file formats. Simply upload the file, choose the output format, enter an email address, and you’ll get a new version in your inbox.

      Converting text documents may not seem like an incalculable feat, but Zamzar can translate many audio and video formats as well. Handy!

  2. Ge.tt

    1. Email attachments can be cumbersome, especially with larger files. If you’re looking for a dead-simple way to share in the cloud (especially if you’re still lamenting the death of Drop.io), give Ge.tt a go.

      Two clicks will upload your images, docs, zip files, etc. and generate a tidy link that you can ping over to your coworkers.

      They can view certain files in their browser or download whatever they need from the package.

      Ge.tt storage is temporary (unless you create an account), so use it for quick transfers, not cloud archiving.

  3. Ninite

    1. Setting up a new PC is a surefire way to kill your day. Connecting the cables and transferring your data is only half the battle. Then you need to hunt down all the apps you use regularly.

      ninite-630.jpg

      Ninite streamlines the process. Check off all the browsers, readers and media players you need on your new machine and download them all in one shot via an automated installer. Best of all, Ninite eliminates the extra “junk” (toolbars, add-ons) that sometimes come packaged with common applications.

  4. CopyPasteCharacter

    1. If you work on any legal, scientific, or multi-lingual documents throughout the day, you may have a need to add certain symbols to the text that are not immediately available on your keyboard.

      You could go into the special characters map in your word processor, or if you’re feeling particularly nerdy, memorize the Alt key codes that you need.

      But better yet, why not throw open a browser tab with CopyPasteCharacter.com and snag your symbols with one click? You can even copy the HTML values if you’re working in code.

  5. LucidChart

    1. Need a visual aide to get your point across? PowerPoint has its flaws, and Photoshop requires some requisite skills even if you’re just doing the basics.

      LucidChart, on the other hand, is a drag-and-drop way to create impressive flowcharts and diagrams right in your browser. Pop your shapes onto the graph, pull down some arrows, add descriptions, colors and titles, and you’ve got a professional diagram you’d be proud to show clients.

      A free LucidChart account allows two people to collaborate on a document, 25 MB of online storage, and a maximum of 60 objects per document. Inexpensive paid options offer more collaborative and storage features.

Working in US legally

Life & more | 2011.01.12 09:53 | Posted by 스마트 안전보건

I can work part time job from this spring semester as a computer lab

consultant in UNC. So I finished the process of getting my social security

number (SSN) today.

It took a whole day. I went to several offices in UNC and SSA (Social Security

Office) and finally finished it. I may get my SSN card within 10 days from today.

From now on, I am a legal worker in USA.

Creativity | 2010.12.10 06:31 | Posted by 스마트 안전보건

Recently, my internet browser, FireFox, couldn't play YouTube videos on it.

So I browsed on the web in Google and finally got it solved. Here is the tip

to make YouTube videos work on FireFox again.   

 

Videos on YouTube are streamed through Adobe Flash player. If you're having

trouble playing and viewing videos YouTube, we suggest you install the latest

version of the Flash player: this will allow you to easily play YouTube videos.

Here's how to upgrade to the most recent version of Adobe's Flash Player
1. uninstall any older versions
2. Please completely uninstall the version of Flash you're currently running,

    before upgrading to the most recent version. To uninstall Flash, follow Adobe's

    instructions, listed here. You'll need to download Adobe's official Uninstaller to

    remove Flash.
3. Once you've uninstalled the older version of Flash, you'll be ready to upgrade

    to the most recent version of Flash.


Follow Adobe's instructions for reinstalling the most recent version of Flash.
Once you've downloaded the latest version of Adobe Flash, please exit your browser.
