Mark Sullivan at PC World compiled a list of 10 websites that are worth checking out. We’d heard of most of them, but there were a few surprises. Here’s the short list, but click through to the article to read more, as PC World provides more information about each website.

Quicken Online – We haven’t tried the free online application, but we’ve used Quicken software before and are big fans.

LinkedIn – We’re familiar with this website. It’s a great way to network, and is pretty amazing how quickly you can connect with people from your past, present – and future?

SimplyHired – This website aggregates job listings from a number of major job listing websites, though we didn’t find Monster, CareerBuilder, or HotJobs in their results, so probably still worth checking the big guys — and don’t forget CraigsList.

DesperateDollars – We hadn’t come across this website before, but it’s worth checking out. You can find lots of creative ways to pull in a few extra bucks.

Free Napkin – PC World says “FreeNapkin is like an eBay for free stuff.” – This website aggregates deals.
Meetup – Helps you set up in-person networking events.

SmartyPig – A clever way to get you to save — particularly for specific goals. – Information on all subjects recession.

Wise Bread – A great frugal-related website (we’re big fans).
