Free Job Search Help

When searching for a job in this economy, you can use all the help you can get. If your job search includes scanning through the internet for specific positions on those online job-searching sites, then you know how time-consuming it can be, even if you've uploaded several versions of your resume to a few places. Now, some sites will inform you that your resume's been looked at, but they neither tell you who it was, when it was, nor if somebody's decided to hang onto a copy of it. And until now, the only way to learn of any progress was to log onto the sites.

ResumeBear is a job-searching site that enables you to set up text and email alerts that will tell you in real time when your resume has been opened or if it is being read - sort of like putting a tracker and motion sensor on your resume. ResumeBear will also inform you if anybody forwards your resume to someone else, giving you a heads up for a possible near-future phone call. Nice, huh?

ResumeBear is real easy to use. Once you sign up for a free account, they'll email you a link to get started. Once logged in, and after giving some basic contact info, you have a choice between using their wizard to help build a resume, uploading one you already have in Word format, or letting one of their professional writers create a resume for you. Another nice feature that come with the free account includes being able to upload several versions of your resume, then identifying your most successful version.

Utilized properly, ResumeBear can become a more powerful and effective means of improving your chances of your resume being noticed, and helping to advance your career.

Free Christmas Fonts

Christmas is only a few weeks away. If you are doing any Christmas project, such as creating your own family Christmas card or holiday gift tags, here are five websites where you can download free Christmas fonts to help you express your creativity for this season. Each site contains lots of Christmas fonts that bring out the spirit of the season.

1. The Holiday Spot - My favorite fonts from this website are the Frosty and Kingthings Christmas 2 fonts. Aside from fonts, The Holiday Spot also includes free Christmas toolbar, cliparts and midi files.

2. Christmas Buzz - Similar to The Holiday Spot, this website also includes lots of free Christmas graphics including wallpapers, screensavers and e-cards. It also has free recipes to help you plan your Christmas meal.
