Career Alley lauds the simple user interface on the home page and the customization options, such as email alerts, that surface after clicking through. The review in PC Mag approvingly highlights the data on local job markets, including companies with job openings, industries that are hiring, and changes in job trends.

You can keep track of saved opportunities and applications, calculate salaries based on industry and location, follow job trends, read the blog for career advice, and post your own resume. If you know where you don't want to work, you can block specific sites from showing up in the results.
