Get 2019 off to a good start by landing your dream job. Whether you’re in need of a part-time gig to get you through uni, or preparing for your next big career move, these apps can help you on your way. Search, view, save and apply for jobs whenever, wherever, all from your phone.
There’s two reasons why the LinkedIn app is useful when looking for a new corporate job – the ability to network with potential employers, and the job search function.
When landing a new job sometimes it’s all about who you know. On LinkedIn you can connect with people in your industry both here, and in 200 countries all around the world.
The job search function is also handy for job seekers. It presents job openings based on your profile including your current and past roles, career interests, and jobs you’ve previously viewed.
You can also allow recruiters to find and contact you with opportunities. To enable this feature, go to ‘LinkedIn Jobs’ > ‘Preferences’ > turn ‘On’ the toggle to ‘Let recruiters know you’re open’. Here you can fill out details including the location, industry, and type of work you’re interested in. And don’t worry, it’s private so colleagues in your network won’t know you’re looking elsewhere!
SEEK is another popular job search app, allowing you to browse job listings based on keywords, classification, work type, salary, and location. You can save jobs you like and come back and apply for them later.
The best part about the app is you don’t have to constantly check for new jobs – instead, you can have emails sent to you when jobs matching your interests become available.
The quick apply function means you can apply for some jobs on the go via the app, rather than through the hiring company's webite. Once you’ve uploaded resumes and cover letters to your SEEK profile, they’re available to attach to your application. You can also attach files from your phone, or write your cover letter on the spot.
The Indeed app allows you to search for jobs based on job title, company and location. You can find a range of job types from internships and contract work, to part-time and full-time permanent positions.
Similar to SEEK, you can have new openings sent to your email, so you’ll stay up to date on the latest jobs even when you’re not using the app.
You can also follow companies to view their latest jobs and check out reviews to see how the company rates for things like culture, work/life balance, salary, management and job security.
4. Glassdoor Job Search
Like other job search apps, with Glassdoor you can customise your job search by location, title and company, save jobs for later, and create alerts for new openings and recommended roles.
You can also research company reviews by current and former employees to find out if the company is the right fit for you. The reviews include insight into company culture, senior management, career opportunities and work-life balance. You can also get insider information about the interview process and commonly asked questions to help you prepare.
The Adzuna app brings together job advertisements from thousands of websites into the one handy place. Search for jobs based on salary, date listed, company, location and more.
6. Gumtree Jobs
Using the Gumtree Jobs app you can search for jobs across a range of different industries including health, hospitality, retail, trade, and education.
Instead of uploading a resume document, you simply enter your information into your profile and the app generates a resume for you. This means you can easily and quickly apply for roles on the go using the quick apply feature.
