Recruiters Recommend Top Apps for Your Job Search


So you recently completed your studies – or you’re getting ready to graduate – but now you need a place to start your job hunt that’s quick and accommodating for your on-the-go lifestyle.

As the economy continues to recover and the job market remains competitive, finding employment can be one of the most stressful parts of life. Well, we want to help make the hunt a little bit easier.

We asked top job recruiters from all over the country which mobile apps they would recommend to those in the job market.

Job search consultant Chris Ohlendorf urges a balanced approach to your job search. “Using everything available pushes you towards over-saturation and using nothing give you lack of exposure.” Ohlendorf is the chief talent officer at Versique Executive Search and Consulting and McKinley Consulting.

To help you make one of the most stressful parts of life a little bit easier, take a look at the apps for your job search below, and be sure to bookmark this piece for future reference.

Job search apps

1. Hidden Jobs // iOS

Discover new job leads before the hiring process begins with this app. The Hidden Jobs app database provides information about companies who are expanding their operations, and lists these posts by state so you can find the jobs near you.

2. Indeed // Android and iOS

Indeed is an online hub for job postings and searches, and with this app, you can view the job search engine’s thousands of job postings while you’re on the go. In addition to saving or emailing your favorite postings, you can apply for jobs directly from the app.

3. LinkedIn // Android, Blackberry, iOS and Windows

With a social networking app like LinkedIn filled with thousands of contacts and the ability to see new open positions, there’s always something or someone with whom to connect. Additionally, make and set appointments with people, search for jobs or find the next happy hour networking opportunity.

4. Monster // Android and iOS

This app allows you to save favorite searches, email alerts for new job postings, browse job listings and view jobs to which you have already applied. Like LinkedIn, Monster allows you to see job postings near you and apply for them directly from the app.

5. Pocket Resume // Android, Blackberry and iOS

With PDF-rendering technology, Pocket Resume gives you the ability to create a resume on the go! In addition to creating your resume, you can save and email it to your contacts and export to Microsoft Word or to a DropBox account.

6. TweetMyJobs // Android and iOS

This mobile app uses location-based, augmented reality technology to find roles, industries and companies near you that are hiring. View not only the jobs near you, but filter by hourly job postings or email the posting to yourself to apply for the job at a later time.

The bottom line

There will always be stressful times within any job search, but hopefully you have found some great apps to not only help you with time management and certainty, but also with finding the perfect career.
