Many job seekers (recent grads, I'm looking at you) are unsure which industry is best for them. IPQ Career Planner is an iPhone app that helps narrow down the search with a personality and skills assessment. The app analyzes those results and uses them to recommend appropriate jobs. It also offers career advice.

re: 10 Job Search Tools For Recent Grads
Hey Laurianne,

My 2 cents on the problem is that it is presentation/placement issue. We look at the picture first, scrolling down as we do, and then miss that the information/description is actually above and to the right of the picture. Sometimes you can't even see it once you have scrolled. I still find it hard to look there even though I know it is there now. It must have something to do with my propensity to look over ads and that is the normal website position for ads.

This is not laid out in a logical manner. I agree with Cbondy201. I am a computer tech, and I cannot even understand how to get to the links. Please make this simple in the future so people can use the information. Thank you!

Having just the pictures of web sites doesn't really help. You need to include a description of the site, what it offers, and a link to the site.
