Best iPhone Apps to help your graduate job search

Published: Wednesday, 18 April 2012   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

Modern technology, such as a Smartphone, is a great tool to have on your side when looking for graduate jobs. A vast amount of people now own iPhones, but are they really taking advantage of the full range of apps in order to land their ‘dream job’?

We have put together a list of the best Apps that you can use to track job listings and networking opportunities in order to help your career search after graduating.

Careerbuilder.com: This was the first app of its kind when it came out last year, and is still quite popular because of its brand name and built-in geo-location technology. Based on your location, it searches for the job offers within your area. You can read job descriptions and salaries, save jobs to a list of favourites, and email job links. Another advantage of using it is the full functionality of the Careerbuilder.com website that it offers.

Now Hiring: This app includes one of the most complete searches, categorising it by miles, date, relevance, full/part-time, contract, internship or temporary and search by city and postcode. It also shows up jobs available in the US, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Spain and India.

Job Compass: By using the iPhone’s locator feature, this app gives you the ability to search for a job within a 5 to 100 mile radius. Once you know where the role is based, you can read the job description and even apply for it.

Job Finder: Instead of visiting all job search sites one by one, this app trawls through jobs from multiple job sites for you. You will simply need to specify your search – it has up to 73 job categories- and it will come up with some options.

iJobs: This app delivers millions of job listings to your iPhone based on your search specification and the ability to filter results by category, company, title, industry and employee type. It also includes a geo-location to let you know the nearest offers within your area.

Are you currently using any of these apps? Which one do you think is the most effective for finding graduate jobs?
