There’s a lot of advice out there on how to write the best application form, how to be great at interviews or how to make a fantastic first impression. But what about the first stage of the process of actually finding a job you want to apply for? Tracking down the perfect position is, in all likelihood, the most time-consuming and hardest part of the process. In today’s times, where everything is on-the-go, job seekers need to have constant and quick access to their networks as well as the latest jobs advertised. Luckily for us, it has never been easier to look for opportunities online, whether on tablets, laptops or mobiles. To help you on the path of finding your perfect job, here are our top 7 mobile apps to help you with your job search:
If you have a Career Builder account and your details are already saved on their database, this app will help you apply for a job with just two taps of your finger. Once you have found the job you want to apply for, you can apply instantly or save it for review later. You can also sync your CV and cover letters together with your saved jobs on your account.
Sign up to CareerArc Job Search, connect your account with Facebook and Twitter and you will get sent job recommendations. By telling them the type of job you are looking for, they will send perfect matches to your email, mobile phone or Twitter account.
Totaljobs.com is one the leading job boards in the UK and now you can search and apply for jobs through their app in just a few simple taps. It’s all about location so you can browse jobs from all over the UK, adjust your search radius by miles and use their in-app map functionality to find jobs locally. This is particularly useful for employers like Enterprise who have branches nationwide, making it easier for you to find a job in your area.
Unlike job search boards and aggregators, LinkUp drives job seekers directly to jobs on employers’ websites. By letting you search jobs straight from company websites, LinkUp helps you discover many jobs that have not been advertised on the traditional job boards. Searching for a particular job title or skill and location will pull up all relevant companies in the area who have that job listed on their corporate careers website.
Interview Prep Questions is a flash card app that prepares you for dozens of job interview questions. Each question is accompanied by suggestions that will help you answer these tough questions. Users can create personalised cards which can then be added to or removed from a built-in “Faves Deck” at any time. The cards can be shuffled and there is also a search feature making prepping easier.
