  • Huntsy

    Prev 2 / 11 Next

    Applying for jobs at no end is the kind of purgatory we wish on no one. But Huntsy has a bookmarklet to automatically import and track your filed applications.

  • Fortnighter

    Prev 3 / 11 Next

    Since wearing your backpack to work is generally frowned upon, make plans to go backpacking with Fortnighter. Their vacation itineraries are the perfect graduation gift.

  • Sparked

    There’s only so many ways to break up the monotony of the application process, and Hulu isn’t really helping anyone. Instead, use your talents to microvolunteer.

  • ResumUP

    Prev 5 / 11 Next

    The résumé hasn’t really changed since its inception. But sign in with your LinkedIn or Facebook account and ResumUP generates a cool visual employment history.

  • Vittana

    Prev 8 / 11 Next

    Maybe you’re paying your own loan already, but paying it forward with a microloan starts at about $25. That’s about four beers to help a fellow student earn their degree.

  • Lumosity

    Prev 9 / 11 Next

    Training your brain with four years of essays and deep thought turned it into a professional muscle builder. Take it to the gym with custom workouts designed specifically to improve your memory and attention.

  • Snap Goods

    Prev 10 / 11 Next

    In the grand scheme of a new apartment or job, stocking up on every shiny new thing probably isn’t the best idea.  Rent stuff you might not need or loan the excess.

  • Mingly

    Prev 11 / 11

    We know a lot of people, but also forgot most things about them. This Gmail plugin (and dashboard) contextualizes your emails with LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter synchronization.
