The Muse-

The Muse is the only online career resource that offers a behind-the-scenes look at job opportunities with hundreds of companies, original career advice from prominent experts, and access to the best coaches to get personalized and private career help. We believe that you can and should love your job—and be successful at it—and we want to help you make that happen.

This is a big competitor because they show a more wholisitic view of the employers that are listed on their site. They entice the millennial population with the visuals and collect information that is valuale to know for applying well and deciding if it would be a good culture fit which is important to my audience. AfterCollege is a website designed to help recent college graduates find job openings based on their majors. It's particularly useful to those who chose their fields of study based on personal interest, without a particular career path in mind. "The problem that a lot of students have is they don't know what to search for," explained Roberto Angulo, CEO of AfterCollege, of the post-graduate job hunt.
