Smart Phone Job Search With A Buzz.
This is the Android app to have for doing some serious job searching. HireADroid has loads of features and a simple user interface to help you find your next job. To the best of our knowledge, HireADroid is the only app that supports multiple job search engines like Indeed, Careerbuilder, Simplyhired and Linkup. If you find something you like, you can save it to your favorites, send an email or tweet the opportunity. Further, you can find a job and even apply for the position right from your phone. In addition, this app features jobs in multiple countries, so if you’re in the market for overseas opportunities, you’ll find this one very handy. You can download it for free right here.
Using the LinkUp search engine is a solid way to tap into the hidden job market by finding many unadvertised jobs. LinkUp links directly to company and employer’s websites which generally speaking means the listings are more up-to-date than some job sites and usually not fake or a scam. Because of this LinkUp is an extremely resourceful job-searching tool for those who are fed up with scams and frauds in the job-hunting market, and now the employment search engine has a Droid app to its credit. There are quite a few benefits to using this app too. It allows you to get email alerts when a job is available (or its status changes) and you have RSS access to jobs you saved as your favorites. You can download the LinkUp app for free right here.
You may have asked at one time or another, “how can I find local jobs in my area?” JobCompass is an simple and effective job search software you can use to solve that problem. It is great for filtering millions of job postings and to find the ones that are relevant to you based on the job’s location. What makes JobCompass unique is its patented feature that shows you job openings via a map-view in real-time so you can see where the opportunities are and it even allows you to mark your favorites and then apply. The app features jobs from the USA, Canada and United Kingdom. JobCompass is simply a great way of finding employers in your area that are hiring when you’re on the go. You can download JobCompass for free here.
This Android app is a great tool for job seekers. It offers the option of searching for a variety of jobs in any US city, with its city-by-city lookup feature. It has more than 20 job categories listed and boasts a simple user interface that makes searching for a job that much easier. you can grab the free download for your smart phone here.
So get going.
There are always job opportunities. People are going to retire, transfer, quit, drop off the grid, whatever. There are both part time and full time opportunities out there, but you need the right tools to sort through the mountain of listings to find, and then quickly apply to the ones that are right for you. It is unbelievable to me that you can use a smart phone to see a map of employment opportunities in your area, and greater still that you can use the phone to apply for those jobs. It is even more unbelievable that job seekers do not take full advantage of every too available. Don’t be that guy! There are quite a few smart phone applications that are available for job seekers. I only covered the top free ones for Android phones but there are iPhone and Blackberry alternatives available too. How can you still be sitting there. Go get the download…sheesh.
