A round up of graduate recruitment apps

Published: Wednesday, 18 April 2012   Category: Graduate jobs

We all know that social media is an invaluable tool for networking, finding jobs and building up a bank of recruitment contacts. There are also a host of graduate recruitment apps that can help UK graduates find the role of their dreams at a number of leading companies.

Last year, banking giant Barclay’s launched its graduate app and the agency behind the design highlighted the advantages of the app:

“The ‘See more’ side integrates seven private twitter accounts with a direct feed to the iPhone app. This allows students to discover what each graduate on one of the Barclays programmes is up to by viewing their daily / weekly tweets. Each graduate contributing to the micro blog has a video loaded with their profile so students get a genuine introduction to that person and the programme they are on.”

“The ‘Be more’ side of the app provides 7 employability presentations that use the iPhone’s flick functionality to navigate through each presentation. The presentations are exclusive to the iPhone app and offer a theoretical edge for all those who have read them.”

A host of other companies have also extended their recruitment processes to include the use of apps.

Lloyds Banking Group Graduate jobs app

Graduates can use this app to apply for roles in the following areas: Business Technology, Corporate Markets, Finance, General Management and HR Graduate Programmes. Graduates will also be updated with the latest changes to company’s graduate programmes to ensure that they have the best chances of succeeding in their application.

Nestlé Careers app

This gives graduates the chance to apply for a variety of UK-based roles in the following branches of the company: Nestlé UK, Nestlé Ireland, Nestlé Purina, Nestlé Waters, Nespresso, Cereal Partners UK, and Nestlé Product Technology Centre. Graduates also have the opportunity to access the company’s twitter feed to learn more about their people, brands and culture.

Do you think an app could help you find your first graduate job?
