The job market seems to always be changing, and we all know that can make job hunting rather rough going. However, there are some apps that can help make your life easier.
Already you can search for jobs from anywhere just using your smartphone. But that’s not the only way technology can help.
Don’t worry, we don’t have anything against the old-fashioned approaches. You’re should likely still utilize them, too. However, if you want to up your game, you might want to download these apps. You never know, they might improve the likelihood of you landing your dream job.
Swipe to apply with JobSwipe.
Just about everyone knows how Tinder works. Well, JobSwipe is like Tinder for jobs. (Yes, really. You can look for a job the same way you look for dates.)
It’s like a modern job marketplace where you upload a resume and get matched with recruiters. Just swipe right to apply for jobs that interest you. You can, of course, filter job listings to ones that meet your preferences before you start swiping.
Make connections on LinkedIn.
Even if you’re not a fan of social networks, LinkedIn is basically a must-have for job seekers and professionals.
It’s absolutely crucial to have an up-to-date, clean, fully-completed LinkedIn profile when applying for most jobs. However, you don’t just want to plop up a profile and forget about it. LinkedIn is an invaluable tool that helps you make the connections necessary to get your foot in certain doors. And one of them might even open into your dream company.
Anytime you’re looking for employment, keep an eye out for mutual connections. These are folks that might be able to introduce you directly to someone at the company. Not only does this help you meet the right people, it also means you’ll already have a credible recommendation.
Sometimes, you may not want to apply for a plethora of jobs only to find they simply don’t pay enough. Plus, you may also want to see what current employees think about a company before you commit to an interview.
That’s where Glassdoor comes in. This app gives you an inside look at both companies and the jobs they have available. You can see employee reviews, get detailed salary information, and more.
That way, you don’t have to even talk to anyone before deciding if a company is potentially right for you.
