How to Use Tech in Your  Job Search

The Voice of Job Seekers - Unemployed, Underemployed, Unappreciated Job Seekers Welcomed!

She said I made her feel important, and Kris McDonald (@littletechgirl) is quite the savvy professional when it comes to tech. This episode is a job search light episode and focused more on productivity. You want to listen to this episode if you’re in-between tech usage and knowing the depth of the use of let’s say a smart phone. 

This is a special Christmas edition of the podcast. It is also the end of this season for the show. I will be publishing new episodes on January 12, 2016. You want to subscribe to the show as we talk about salary negotiation for women (although many of the same principles we discuss will apply to all). Don’t miss that episode.
