Five apps that can help you catch that job-search break you’ve been hoping for

When you’re looking for a job, technology is on your side. Long mornings spent poring over a newspaper, coffee in hand, circling jobs that sound promising? No longer necessary! Now all you need is your phone and dreams for the future—plus a few valuable apps that will help you do the rest.  

Five of the Best Job Search Apps Available 

Whether you prefer Android or iOS, the world’s most robust job search sites also offer apps. Just download and you’ll be ready to find your next job in no time: 


This website is famous for networking and the ability to set up a living resume. But when you download the LinkedIn app, you gain a few more helpful features. First, by enabling job search notifications, the app will send you alerts when jobs pop up that match your skills and work experience. And if you prefer to search on your own, you can narrow your options by title, company, pay grade and more.  


Another heavy hitter in the job market, Monster offers an app that adds additional value to its already robust job search site. First, upload your resume. Then, simply scroll through job listings and swipe to dismiss, or easily apply. The app also includes a feature to help you keep your resume spruced up and ready to go.  


If you’ve ever searched for a job on the Indeed website, you already know this is a great source for job opportunities. With the app, you can upload your resume and easily apply for jobs. You can use GPS to search for open positions in your area and filter by criteria that are important to you.  


This app is equal parts job search tool and skills development guru. Its features will help you assess your current job skills, determine what additional skills you may need to develop, plus upload your resume and easily apply to open jobs.  


All your job search needs, all in one place—that’s the ZipRecruiter app. It pulls from more than 100 job boards and allows you to refine your search by applying a number of criteria and filters. Plus, it will notify you when jobs you may be interested in pop up, and you can upload your resume to easily apply.
