20 Best Daily Newsletters For Job Seekers and Anyone
Question: What’s easiest?
- Finding a new job?
- Advancing in your current job?
- Pivoting to a completely new job?
Answer: None of the above!
Career stuff is hard.
Even in a good year, one without a raging virus, record unemployment and social unrest, there are usually about several gazillion people looking for jobs – and you can bet your next stimulus payment that some of them are eying the same exact position you bookmarked two seconds ago.
So how do you beat your competition at their own game?
You need something no one else has. I’m not talking talent, mad-skills or a magic eight ball…I’m talking about the one thing everyone needs to succeed – INFORMATION.
And guess what? The Information you need to propel your job search journey to the next level is probably just one click-and-verify away. That’s right, I’m talking email. But not just any email, I’m talking about the daily or weekly kind. The kind that provides the news, resources and leads which give you a winning edge in your job journey.
Below, we’ve compiled our favorite, most useful, rabbit-hole-provoking dailies to ensure you’ve got that winning edge day in and day out.

Best Advice/ News for Life
So. I’m pretty convinced that the Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update” writing teams gets at least 95% of their show segment ideas from reading the newsletters listed below. These emails below aren’t strictly ‘career’ focused. But. If we ever go back to the days of dinner parties/bar hookups and small talk – or — you just want to be super well-informed on your next Zoom Happy Hour – these are the mails to start your day with.
- The Morning Brew – To answer the age-old question, if I was stranded on an island, yes, this would be the daily email I’d take with me. The Morning Brew might be a coffee company. They might be a media company. Someone might just have paid $75 million dollars for them – and – for real – this newsletter is good to the last drop – every morning. Don’t just subscribe. Please subscribe here so I can get a sticker for my water bottle:
- The Hustle – As in a side. Not The Dance. If Morning Brew had a younger bro forever trying to cop a ride to the mall – this would be it. Another great ‘letter to the universe, The Hustle gives you a bit of morning inspiration, information – and a cutting-edge take on Trends (their paid side-side-hustle). That’s pretty kick-ass, too.
- The Skimm – There are about 7.5 million reasons to read this. Yes. The Skimm says it has that many readers a day. They practically invented the daily talking point. And they are experts in selling stuff without you knowing it. Yes, It’s very female-skewing and some dudes don’t get it.
