This is not your grandmother’s job search: used to be – pre-1980s and the advent of the answering machine – one had to be at home to answer a call from an employer regarding an interview. (Imagine!)
Today, though, insurance professionals looking for work can send resumes and cover letters via email—and check that email on a smartphone, or receive calls from potential employers anywhere they happen to be. (Imagine!)
Anyone looking for work can take their job search mobile today. Read below for a few of our favorite job search apps. What’s more, they’re free!
- LinkedIn is possibly the best networking site for professionals today. Stay connected wherever you are with the site’s own mobile app. You can search the site’s member directory, post a status to your feed, check out what the professional groups of which you’re a member are doing, and more. The app is available for both Android and iPhone.
- Indeed.com has a wealth of information for job seekers. In addition to searchable job listings, the site provides salary information, best places to work, job trends, and more. The site’s mobile app lets you search for, save, and send the latest job opportunities. The app is available for both Android and iPhone.
- Many career experts advise that you should “never eat alone,” because the best jobs are found through people you know and the more people you know well – by eating with them – the better. LunchMeet.com has an app that allows you to plan and schedule lunch meetings with your connections on LinkedIn. Once you download the app to your phone, you can let your contacts know you’re available for lunch, and you can set up – and fill – the time slots you’re available for breaking bread. You also can send and receive lunch invitations. The app is available now for iPhone only, but an Android app should be available soon.
- Wouldn’t it be nice if you could organize everything across all of your devices? Now you can, with Evernote’s iPhone and Android apps. The app lets you save your on-the-fly ideas and expand your productivity. You can take photos, make to-do lists, record a reminder to yourself, take notes anytime, anywhere.
