The 6 Best Career Apps to Help You Find Your Dream Job
We would be lying if we said that searching for your dream job was easy. With so many opportunities and possibilities out there, it can be difficult to sift through thousands of roles to find that one ‘forever’ job that you’re after.
However, there are a few tools you can use that take the sting out of the process and help you find what you’re looking for.
Career apps have come along a lot in recent years and there are a huge variety to choose from. We decided to have a closer look at the most versatile ones that can aid you in your job search.
Here are the best career apps to help you find your dream job!
1. LinkedIn: Network & Job Finder
With over 55 million companies listed on its database, it’s no surprise that LinkedIn is a perennial favourite when it comes to job search apps.
It’s a career app that comprehensively covers all of the features that you’d need when you’re trying to find your dream job – and it performs its role very well.
As well as giving you access to the latest job openings at major companies, its intuitive job search function allows you to intelligently filter results based on your needs and apply directly in the app, saving you a lot of time and hassle.
LinkedIn is obviously a social network, so it goes without saying that the LinkedIn app is also really useful for networking and expanding your professional network – essential when it comes to finding your dream job.
The Glassdoor app follows the same winning format as other well-known job search apps but with one killer difference – you can find out detailed information about what it’s like to actually work at the company before you even apply for the role.
With the Glassdoor app, you can access employee reviews of companies, along with average salaries, interview questions and CEO ratings.
Through these humble features, you can gain valuable insights into the values and culture of a company, along with insights into the ways that a business treats its employees, essentially helping you to avoid wasting time on job applications for companies with a toxic working environment.
3. Remotely Job Search
In the age of COVID-19, remote jobs are no longer a novelty – they’re becoming an integral feature of the way that we work. In the past, if you wanted to find your dream remote job that matched your needs, you’d have to try your luck filtering down results in general job searches because decent remote work job search apps didn’t really exist.
Step in, Remotely Job Search. A job app dedicated completely to remote jobs, Remotely allows you to browse the latest, completely-remote jobs whilst also interacting with companies and other job seekers – all in a user-friendly format!
Where to find: App Store
Indeed is one of the most comprehensive job search engines. Gathering jobs from over 60 countries, Indeed boasts 250 million regular users and over 16 million jobs listed regularly, making it one of the most popular career apps.
It’s also one of the most useful, giving you access to a broad range of opportunities in an easy-to-navigate, user-friendly app.
With the ability to save your CV and cover letter, you can apply to jobs fairly easily with one click, so this app is useful if you’re applying to multiple, very similar roles. (If you can, you should try to tailor each application to each role that you’re applying for though!)
5. CV Library Job Search
An extensive range of job opportunities, an easy to navigate design and layout, and the ability to save job searches help make the CV Library Job Search app a formidable tool in a job seeker’s arsenal.
It’s similar to the Indeed, LinkedIn and Glassdoor apps in principle – a general job search engine – but offers a different range of jobs from other apps and an ability to drill down deeper in your search with filters.
6. ZipRecruiter Job Search
Having to switch between different apps when you’re job searching can end up disrupting your focus and make it harder to concentrate on those all-important searches and applications.
The ZipRecruiter app is designed to combat that. Gathering jobs from over 100 different sources, the app makes it easier to spot those dream job opportunities without needing to balance multiple apps at once and crashing your phone.
