Job Search Apps and Find The Great One

Job hunting has changed a lot in recent years. Thanks to mobile apps available across a variety of smart devices, you can take your job search on the go, and apply to positions any time, anywhere. If you’re looking to make a career change in the new year, here are 15 free apps to help you find your dream job.

1. CityHour If you’re just getting started in or want to move up in your field, many career experts recommend setting up informal meetings with industry professionals to learn more about their career experiences. Eliminate the awkward “ask” phase with CityHour, an app that syncs with your LinkedIn profile to find contacts who are already open to scheduling in-person meetings. You can quickly connect and schedule a meeting with anyone in a 50-mile (80 kilometers) radius, and once you’ve selected a meeting place, the information is automatically synced with your phone’s calendar.

2. Indeed Job Search At a glance, Indeed appears to be a rather straightforward job-search app. Just like the full website, the iPhone app lets you search for jobs and filter the results based on your industry, location, desired salary and more. The Indeed app aggregates listings from thousands of sources, including other online job boards, company career pages and newspaper classifieds. Users can set up email alerts to be notified when new jobs appear in a specific category. When you find a job you like, save it so you can apply later, or attach your résumé to your account so you can apply in-app.

3. Jobaware The highest-rated iOS job-search app, Jobaware allows you to sync all your job-search activity on the web and on the app, as well as integrate with LinkedIn. You can track your search progress, compare jobs in different cities, check specific companies for jobs and view salary information. The app also connects you with a variety of learning resources to aid in your job search.
