What's your job search tool chain?

Hi -
Wondering what kind of tools you've used for searching, preparing and negotiating.

I am using LinkedIn as primary tool for looking for positions with specific alerts. Once I find a post I am interested in, I try to see if there is someone in the network that can forward my resume. As for the prep phase, it's mostly been EPI / LC / Design reviews so far.

What tools do/did you use?

      What approach did you take when you did not have anyone for a personal referral?

      InMail the recruiter, send a personalized message. Most of the time they reply back or are willing to chat on the phone. If they don't and I hear nothing about my application, I assume they have a poor culture and I probably don't want to work there anyway

    LinkedIn and Leetcode are the only things you need.

    I blast out resumes with loaded keywords nilly willy.. its a numbers game. I don’t make judgement on the company or role until I hear from it directly. If recruiter or hiring manager are assholes, I leave

      Don’t they have to correlate to job description? Shouldn’t the content have to flow? Need your advice here. I am really overwhelmed with the amount of jobs I’ve to tailor and apply..
