Need to find a job? There’s an app for that

Oftentimes, recent graduates struggle in the hunt for jobs. Sometimes they don’t know where to apply or they might be dealing with that senioritis hangover. But their student loan debts still need to be paid somehow. Here are some apps that might make it easier for graduates to find jobs in their desired career.

“Job Search”

“Job Search,” created by, allows users to view job postings from job boards or even company websites. Of course, these job postings are available to you based on the location of where you live. The most helpful tool about “Job Search” is that you can receive notifications of your own personalized job searches straight to your smartphone. This app also allows you to apply to jobs via your smartphone. It’s a great app to find a job on the go. It is rated 4.5 stars in the App Store and many people seem to be quite satisfied with it.


You might think that “Job Search” may have all the tools required in order to quickly find a job, but “Glassdoor” has a couple of useful features that are not offered in the previous app. Of course you get to view and apply to the most recent job listings in your area, but you also get to view company salaries, save jobs and apply later, along with finding out other important information right from a job listing. Users are also allowed to read company reviews from employees about the work environment, interview experience and senior leaders. This provides an insight about the job before you decide to apply. This app is pretty simple to navigate and it is very informational.


You can’t miss out on “” considering its long-term reputation, but let’s be honest here—this app is basically the same thing as “Job Search.” The only difference is that “” allows users to access their account to upload and view and manage their resumes, cover letters and job applications. This app seems to be more convenient for a college student because you can access your account via smartphone or computer. Overall, this app is quite easy to use and “” has been around for a while now, so it is safe to say you can trust it.

You may be wondering which of these three apps is the best, but it seems to be obvious that “Glassdoor” wins this competition. Try these apps out and see which one you find to be  more helpful.
