The Muse is an amazing place for all things careers. The Muse is most notably known as a job search site. They partner with big companies (mostly tech) and spend a lot of resources into profiling the company. With The Muse, you can get a really good feel of what it would be like to work for that specific company.

On top of that, they offer access to career coaches and courses for a fee. They also have an amazing Advice section that gives career advice for free!


The Balance

The Balance might be one of the most extensive career sites you’ll find on the internet. Think about any position in almost any industry….they’ve probably written something about it!

The Balance has created a sizable media empire centered around careers, small business, and just about everything else. The organization has several different brands and websites like The Balance, The Balance Careers, The Balance Small Business, and The Balance Everyday. If you’re looking for just career advice, The Balance Careers is the place to go!

FairyGodBoss

FairyGodBoss was “created by women, for women”, but this a great career site for anyone. While they focus heavily on female-focused information like maternity, they have some pretty awesome content related to work-life balance and general career advice.

Whether you’re a woman or not, FairyGodBoss is a great site to check out!


LiveCareer

LiveCareer doesn’t just have great articles on career advice, they’ve got just about everything else too!

Some of their flagship products are their Resumė and Cover Letter builder. These builders help you put together good looking, professional resumės and cover letters.

Aside from that, their Interview Videos section is an amazing resource that allows you to watch videos of people answering (really well) common interview questions. One thing that I particularly like about these videos is the fact that they are realistic. It’s not actors giving perfect answers, because that’s not the real world.


CollegeGrad

If you’re a recent college graduate, this site is a must. Above all, CollegeGrad is a job site for entry-level jobs and internships. The perfect place to start looking for your first career job. Aside from their job searching features, CollegeGrad, like the rest of these great options in this article, offer some pretty in-depth career and interview advice.

Not only do they have everything you need to prepare for your interview, they provide you with tips and strategies for what to do after your interview.


Career One Stop

CareerOneStop is sponsored by the U.S Department of Labor and a partner of the American Job Center Network.

Not only does this site offer great career advice, it also offers resources to get started on your next career move. They offer search tools to find local training, certifications, and other things to help you grow within your career.


Talent Culture

Talentculture is unique in the sense that it goes past the normal mediums of career advice like simple text-based articles.

Worktrends is a popular podcast that they host on Wednesdays at 1:30 PM EST with Meghan Biro and Keven Grossman. They also host a Twitter chat at the same time with the hashtag: #WorkTrends. The podcast has some pretty amazing episodes that bring in guests like Citrix CMO, Tim Minahan, to talk about redefining modern workplaces.

On top of that, Talenculture even hosts webinars and provides free e-books that you can download on all devices.


Corporette

Here’s one career site that really stands out among the rest. Corporette not only provides awesome career advice for women, they also give advice on corporate fashion.

Guides on wearing heels, product spotlights, and career advice are all things that you can expect to find over at Corporate. Plus more!

There are plenty of other amazing career websites out there that we aren’t able to cover, but these top 10 are a great place to start. If you represent or know of another great career blog, podcast, social group, or career anything, please drop us a message on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or email and we’ll be sure to check it out!
