3 Essential Job Search Apps

LinkedIn Jobs

You've been scouring the internet looking for the best job search site with no luck. You've even tried the job search tool on the LinkedIn website. It's time to check out the LinkedIn Jobs app. It's so robust; you can search by keyword, title, and location.

The best part - it saves all of your searches for you. That means you don't have to recreate a search every time you open the app. You can also set job alerts for your search criteria and save job postings right there in the app.

The job postings themselves also include the date that they were added. It's always better to apply within the first few weeks of a job being posted, and this gives you that often hard to find, critical piece of information. You'll also be notified when a posting is set to expire (in other words, stop accepting applications).

For many of the jobs listed you can apply directly through your LinkedIn account. No more formatting your resume and uploading through your phone. Easy as pie!
