Everyone is getting into the job search app game these days. Two major companies and a startup have new apps out that you may want to add to your job search toolbox. Linkedin, Kelly Services and an app called Anthology are featured in this post.
LINKEDIN STUDENTS APP
Their new app is aimed at College students. It's supposed to be a "Tinder-like" experience, Taking a nod from the popular dating app. According to LinkedIn it, "helps you discover jobs that are a best fit for graduates with your major, companies that tend to hire from your school and the careers paths of recent alumni with similar degrees."
It is available now for iOS and Android.
The staffing firm Kelly now has a job search of their own. They recently announced the launch of Kelly Jobs, which provides candidates the ability to manage their Kelly job search process wherever they are, using their favorite mobile devices.
According to the press release, "The Kelly Jobs app offers job seekers the one-touch convenience of mobile, on-the-go access to a wide range of jobs and career-related tips and resources. It's expected to appeal to candidates today, of whom 89 percent report they're likely to use a mobile device during their job search according to a recent Glassdoor survey. The app is available in the App Store and Google Play and can also be accessed by visiting kellyservices.com/kellyjobsapp."
This app (formerly known as Poachable) is intended for passive job seekers such as sought after developers who hate being contacted by recruiters. It allows them to put themselves out there and it screens recruiters looking to contact them by making the recruiter answer questions about the job they are trying to fill. Now thats a refreshing idea! This "shield" as its called protects the job seeker from unwanted outreach. Learn more.
There is a web version too.
