These sites have tools you can trust to help you make better money decisions.
Best Site: Linkedin.com
You probably already belong to this 55 million-member networking site, but chances are you could be using it more effectively, says Colorado job-search coach Vicki Brackett. Fill out your profile fully. Make sure it's publicly available. Add keywords that reflect your skills; borrow phrases from job descriptions to help recruiters find you. And join LinkedIn groups in your industry.
Coolest feature: You can search your own network to see who has connections to a company that's hiring.
Try this too: For job listings, go to Indeed.com, which pulls together ads from multiple sites.
