"It's a job seekers market!" top experts from the New York Post, Fast Company, and U.S. News, have proclaimed.  Unemployment is down, and companies are hiring now more than ever. So job seekers, it looks like the ball's in your court. 

However, if you are an active job seeker, you may not be feeling optimistic. Looking for a job can be a long, tedious process. How companies find candidates constantly changes and evolves. Keeping up to date on things like application tracking system best practices, the balance of selling both technical and soft skills to employers, and presenting your personal brand are just some examples of things that people didn't have to worry about a few years ago when they were looking for a job. But, these days, hiring companies expect you to juggle all these aspects in selling yourself as the best candidate, or the chances of scoring your dream job can be slim to none. 

Over the past year, Yoh produced a lot of content to prepare you for the challenges that come with the modern job search.  Here are our top 5 blogs about it, according to readers like you.
