5 Apps Every Job Seeker Needs

Job Search

You’re probably busy leading a very hectic life and may not have time to spend job searching. Luckily for you, there’s an app for that – as is usually the case – will let you perform quick and easy job searches on the go. Below are five of the best apps you can use to find your dream job, and you can even apply through them too!

1. Indeed

Indeed is one of the best apps for finding both part-time and full-time jobs in casual industries such as hospitality. Indeed’s app is search-based which makes it more difficult for passive searching, and you do need to fill in some information before you can use it. You can also upload your resumé and apply to jobs with one click, so once you’ve got all the initial configuration out of the way, you’re good to go.

2. Glassdoor

Glassdoor is both a job search engine and a way for you to learn more about a potential employer. Through verified current and ex-employee reviews, Glassdoor provides a first-hand look into most of the world’s organisations and is cleverly segmented off into different categories. Glassdoor can be used for simple job searching, reading reviews from ex-employees, learning more about salaries and reading interview tips left by real people who were both successful and unsuccessful. The biggest attraction with Glassdoor is the company insights and they can really tell you a lot about a potential employer before you take the plunge and apply for a job.

3. LinkedIn

LinkedIn’s app requires a little more work to get going with, as it requires you to have a LinkedIn account and a complete profile. This is worth it, however, as according to several job applicants, those who applied on the very same day that the job was posted received a reply very quickly. LinkedIn’s app is easy to use and includes customisable search tools, company information, and bespoke job alerts. With all this information, you have everything you need to send applications to the right employers for you. LinkedIn is a sort-of online resumé and it is a very powerful tool for not only applying to jobs but networking too.

4. SnagAJob

SnagAJob was created specifically for job seekers who want hourly work. You can sign up for SnagAJob simply by importing your Google or Facebook profiles and filling out some personal information. Following this, you can search through thousands of different full and part-time hourly positions using their comprehensive filters and apply with a single click. The only downside to this app is that there are only hourly jobs; you will not find salaried positions on here. This app is great for students and casual workers.

5. Staff Heroes

Staff Heroes is the perfect app for job hunters looking exclusively for casual work, especially in the hospitality sector. You can find a waitressing job quickly with this app and it’s very easy to get going with it. To get going, all you need to do is create your profile and you can link the app up with your social media accounts to pull the basic information, providing you with more time to spend looking for work. It’s not just restaurant work available, either. Retail, business administration, promotions, and events are just a few of the types of job available through the Staff Heroes mobile app. Thanks to the vast range of apps available on the market, job hunting is no longer a time-consuming process. Most of the time, it is as simple as uploading a few details and clicking a button to apply.
