How much does an iPhone cost these days? Hundreds of dollars, right? Now why don’t you transform it from a mere cool gadget to an extremely useful job-hunting tool? There are actually several iPhone applications (also known as apps) that are not only very easy to use, they are also meant for job seekers.
Here are four of them:
If given a chance, almost all employees would like to work much closer to home. That would mean fewer expenses on food and transportation. It also minimizes the tendency of getting late, and surely, you will not find any reason not to report to work unless you are very sick or need to attend important matters.
That is what JobCompass is for. This application looks for jobs that are within your area. All you have to do is input keywords or the job you are looking for. You will obtain a list of companies, as well as a geographical map of their offices. This way, you can immediately drop by and submit your resume.
This application is free, though for a limited time, so make the most out of it.
This application is actually powered by its website equivalent CareerBliss.com. This works very similar to Monster.com and CareerBuilder.com. However, the application is just loaded with anything related to employees and finding work. With this app, you can have a good idea about how much you should ask for your salary, how to ace an interview, and how to survive competition. Most of the tips and articles were produced by employees, so you can always relate to them and find the pieces of advice helpful.
This is available for free.
3. Resume PRO
There are many advantages in opting for PDF for your resumes and cover letters. For one, you can instantly upload and send them online or through your mobile phone. You can also set and lock the documents to prevent any tampering. Moreover, sending PDFs makes your job application more professional-looking. With Resume PRO, you can create and modify your resume even when you are on the road.
This application comes with a price. It will cost you $3. This fee, however, is definitely nothing compared to getting hired.
A number of experts discourage people from looking for jobs in Craigslist, as it is prone to scams. Nevertheless, there are still decent and high-paying ones. While you are riding on a train or waiting for an interview, tinker with your iPhone and go to Craigster. This is the mobile version of Craigslist — with the same functions and tools. You can search for jobs and some gigs, advertise yourself, and even earn some extra bucks by having a cyber garage sale. Craigster can be used for free.
