5 Essential Apps to Look For a Job on Smartphone

The job market is highly competitive at the moment and that means that candidates must use every tool available to them when trying to find a job. If you have a smartphone, then these tools can also include apps helping with your job search. Take a look at our five favorite apps that will list you all the vacant positions available at the time.


LinkedIn is generally considered a great way to keep in touch with colleagues and networking with contacts in your industry, but it can also be used for finding yourself a new job. When you join LinkedIn, you will have instant access to more than 35 million professional people in almost 150 industries. The LinkedIn app is available on the App Store and the Google Play store, and you can use your free time to surf through it on a ride home – that’s much more convenient than accessing LinkedIn from the browser, especially at work.

Simply Hired

The SimplyHired app offers a search engine which is dedicated to job listings. The app has indexed more than five million job vacancies including those listed in newspapers, bulletin boards and company websites. Results can be filtered by a variety of factors including the size of the company, the shift pattern and the hours required. Like the LinkedIn app, Simply Hired is available on both iPhone and Android.

Job Compass

Job Compass offers a unique approach to job hunting by offering users a way to look for jobs in their local area. Available jobs are plotted on a map based on your current location and results can be set to show jobs within a radius of 5 to 100 miles. It is also possible to add keywords to your search in order to filter results to show only those of interest to you. At present the Job Compass app unfortunately is only available on the iPhone.

Career Builder

With Career Builder you will find local and national job vacancies listed in one convenient place. Users can choose to perform either a quick search or an advanced one which allows you to look for work in multiple cities at once. There are even features which allow you to set up job alerts so that you are notified of suitable jobs and the option to generate a list of jobs based on your key skills, work experience and resume. The Career Builder app can be found in both the App Store and the Google Play.

These five apps make up a small but essential selection from the huge range of apps that are available on iPhone and Android to help you find the job of your dreams. While apps are no substitute for other methods of job hunting, it certainly does not hurt to add one more tool to your arsenal. With these apps you will be able to get your search under way any time no matter where you are.
