Looking for the best career advice to help you find a new job or excel at your current job? We’ve compiled our favorite resources for career advice to help you do just that. No matter what your career goals, these websites will be able to help you on your path to success.

The Muse

The Muse is an online publication dedicated to providing relevant and comprehensive career advice and resources. Their articles are funny, well-researched, and interesting enough you’ll want to share them on social media. No boring how-tos full of obvious nonsense here; they report on legitimate trends with advice that will actually help you in your career.


CareerBuilder is actually a job search site, but their advice section is full of great articles that go beyond the typical common sense suggestions. All of their articles are divided into sections based on the phase of the job - discovery, finding the job, getting the job, and on the job. This makes it easy to find the relevant pieces of advice for your career stage.

Career Section of U.S. News

Maybe you don’t want in-depth career advice. Maybe you just want to follow the most pressing trends and news about jobs and careers. If that’s the case, you should check out the career section of U.S. News. They run stories from all over the web, but they are very selective. If it’s here, you can be pretty sure that it is a well-written and valid article worth reading. They also have categories specifically for interviewing and finding jobs which may be helpful if you are looking to transition to a new position or employer.

Ask A Manager

Alison Green is a career advice columnist who answers reader-submitted questions in addition to writing helpful career advice posts. She is a hiring manager and often consults with other hiring managers to get multiple viewpoints. If you have a specific question, check through her archives. Can’t find a similar situation? Talk to her readers in the open comments forum on Fridays or email her a question directly.

These are our favorite resources for career advice. If you are a student a Manhattan Institute, we also provide career counseling and advice to help you transition to employment.
