Job hunting can be very tedious and time-consuming. Fortunately, there are plenty of apps out there which can help you find the perfect job for you. The problem is that there are simply too many apps to choose from. We’ve done some research and narrowed the list down to the top 5 apps you need if you’re looking for a job. They each offer something unique and you might find that you need at least two or three of them if you’re looking for the elusive job that you haven’t been able to find anywhere else. Here is a list of the best job searching apps that can help minimize the time needed to search and apply for that dream job.
CareerBuilder Job Search
The CareerBuilder app helps you in your search for that perfect job. Get started by uploading your resume, including the ability to upload from file sharing sites such as Google Drive and Dropbox. A nice feature of the CareerBuilder app is the option to take a picture of your paper resume and upload it to apply for a job or convert it into a text document. However, the app goes beyond just job searching, you can also use it to determine what skills are needed to get a better paying job.
Monster Job Search
Monster Job Search takes a slightly different approach to job hunting than the other apps listed in this article. Job postings are displayed on cards that you swipe left or right depending on interest. That app mechanic sure sounds familiar. Once you find a job posting you like, upload your resume and apply. Monster Job search also boasts an in-app career concierge to help you with your job search and answer questions. This concierge can also help you update your resume design, increasing your chance to be noticed by more potential employers.
Indeed Job Search
Indeed touts themselves as the World’s #1 Job Search site and with a database of over 16 million job postings spanning 60 countries and 28 languages, I can understand that claim. The Indeed app can use the GPS on your device to determine your location and provide information about jobs in your area that meet your specific criteria. Use the app to upload your resume and apply for a job, or if you aren’t quite ready to apply, save the job posting and come back to it when you are ready to apply.
LinkedIn Job Search
LinkedIn is one of the primary Business networking companies and its companion app is a great tool to help you find your next job. Search by title, location, industry or by specific keywords. Don’t have much time to search? Let the app do the work for you. Enter data about the type of job you are looking for and the LinkedIn app will notify you of openings meeting your requirements. Once you find a job that interests you, use the app to apply. It’s that simple.
Glassdoor Job Search, Salaries & Reviews
The GlassDoor app helps you get a better understanding of the job market by providing company profiles, reviews, and salary reports. Use the “Know Your Worth” tool to reveal how your market value has trended over time; how your market value compares to typical workers in the same field; and also plot your current base pay. Once you have done your research on the company, the app makes it easy to apply. Another feature is that for some companies, you can see reviews about an employee’s interview experience with a particular company.
