Here are 7 best apps that can help you land your next job without a problem all the while not having to do anything but spend a few minutes on your iPhone or iPad!
Apps for researching job openings
This type of app usually serves as an extension to the main service. They stem from websites and database search engines which have a double nature. Both job seekers and employers can use these apps and services. Employers can use them to post job openings and job seekers then browse through these listings.
Here are 3 best apps of this type to have on your iOS devices!
Indeed job search is the industry leading app when it comes to looking for a job opening on your handy devices. This app makes it extremely easy for you to find your next job with just a few clicks.
Type in your desired field of work as well as the location and in a few moments you will be looking at a list of all jobs in that field within that area. They say that over 200 million people use this app to look for jobs or create openings in over 60 countries.

Glassdoor Job Search is another extension of the well known job searching website. Glassdoor has a very user friendly interface, making it very easy to find specific jobs and openings. Enter keywords important to your profession in its filters and go through the given listings.
Just like Indeed, this app also has a feature for you to review your past employers, but not only that. With Glassdoor you can review even companies that were not your employers by saying a word or two about the recruitment process, how the interview went, and much more!
The app can also send you push notifications about job openings in the fields you enter!
3. LinkedIn Job Search
LinkedIn is a strange place for a few reasons, one of them being – nobody is quite sure what the really are… Are they a social network? A job seeking website? Or perhaps a bit of both?
LinkedIn Job Search definitely helps the argument that the website is primarily for job hunters and people on the look. This app allows for quick and easy jobs search based on title, location, and keywords.
In this section we will mention a couple mobile apps that can help you get connected and stay connected once you start using them.
Skype is a world known service for chatting, messaging, making voice and video calls. At some point in life most of us used this program. Skype started as a desktop program and then later with the rising of mobile apps came out with one of their own. Today Skype can be seen on almost any computer, mobile phone or tablet device.
Having a meeting or an interview via Skype is nothing too uncommon these days so downloading it on your phone might be a good idea if you are in the process of looking for a job.
2. Blue Mail
Blue Mail is a good app to have on your devices if you just can’t decide which email fits your needs. It allows its users to sign in to several different email providers, such as Yahoo, Gmail, iCloud, Outlook 365, and several other. This way if you have several accounts, you can keep track of them at all times simultaneously.
You can also make a custom signature for each of the email accounts so you can easily sign depending whether you are using your private or business email.
Gmail is by far, without a question, the best webmail service at the moment. And that goes for their mobile app as well. Responding to emails, attaching files, and all sorts of things you would do with any other app just isn’t as high quality as Gmail does it. Make sure you turn on your push notifications on your iOS device once you download this app to never again lose contact with your employers and employees.
