"I'm on the hunt for a job, but I was wondering if there's a site or service that people think is better than the rest? Is there perhaps a service, like Kayak, that pulls together all of that data from various sites and aggregates it all together? The other thing I want to know is if there's a program that would track applications at their various stages and offer reminders rather than just using a spreadsheet? Any ideas and help would be fantastic, thank you!"

So, what do you all think? Have any of you managed to avoid a pink slip with job search website or app that you'd like to recommend? Did you pay for a month's free LinkedIn premium and you'd never turn back? Let us know in the comments below.
