Mobile applications are countless these days. And for every practical, fun, or intuitive application, there is one that is none of the above. Whether it’s keeping up with your fitness or ordering food, it’s wise to take the time to evaluate apps before downloading them.
Job search apps are a good example of a mobile app to consider carefully, as the ones you download should help you find jobs quickly and easily apply for the ones that interest you most.
To save you time, here is an overview of the seven best apps in the field.
The Robert Half app is designed to help you find a job you love. You will be able to search and apply for full time, temporary, project, or temporary to permanent jobs directly from this free application. You will receive personalized job suggestions based on your experience and desired career path.
Plus, you’ll get the support of Robert Half’s 15,000 recruiters who are dedicated to helping candidates like you find the perfect job. These recruiters will promote your profile to hiring managers to see your full potential, giving you a head start.
With this application from Robert Half, you will be able to:

The CareerBuilder job search app lets you use augmented reality to view nearby jobs. You can also consult the application map to find job openings near you. You can even apply filters like job title, salary, or distance to narrow your search and see only the jobs that best match you.
The app also includes features to help you prepare for your next job. For example, you’ll be told what skills are needed to get a higher paying job you aspire to, and what job titles you should target to advance your career.
You can also use your phone to photograph your CV and use this image to apply or convert this photo to an editable digital text version. Finally, a tool allows you to create a CV from scratch if necessary.
With the Glassdoor mobile app, you’ll have access to millions of job postings as well as company reviews submitted by current and former employees, just like you if you were on the Glassdoor website. Reviews tell you, among other things, about the culture of the company and the social benefits it offers. You will also learn the interview questions that some companies usually ask.
With Glassdoor, you can save or apply for jobs right from your phone and receive instant notifications when employers post new jobs that meet your criteria. You can also swipe up an offer to reply by email, view the company profile, or subscribe to the company, for example. Plus, the app includes a “Know Your Worth” tool that shows you your market value throughout your career.
With the job search application Indeed, you can browse a database of millions of jobs from thousands of companies and job sites. You can search for full-time or freelance jobs, and everything in between, in over 60 countries and 28 languages. You can also find jobs near you using GPS.
This Indeed app notifies you when new jobs have been posted since your last job search. It lets you schedule reminders and sends your CV with a personalized message only when you’re ready.
The LinkedIn application makes it possible to search for employment as an employee, part-time or teleworking, for example, in a multitude of professions and industries. You can check a company’s profile to see if they are hiring and receive notifications if a position that you are interested in becomes available. When you are interested in a job, you can apply using your LinkedIn profile or by submitting your CV.
This application allows you to search for work among more than 100 sites simultaneously. The search can be done by job title or by location and can be specified by keywords. ZipRecruiter sends jobs every day, directly to your inbox, that match your personalized criteria.
When you are interested in a job posting, you can apply directly from the ZipRecruiter job search application or save the job or search to continue later. And when an employer views your resume, ZipRecruiter sends you a notification.
Good & Co.
With the Culture Fit Jobs application from Good & Co., personality and compatibility are scientifically studied. The Cultural Fit AI algorithm helps you find jobs and employers that match your personality. It uses your profile information and your answers to fun, psychology-based personality quizzes to create a personalized and sophisticated job search tool. When you have a better idea of your strengths and working style, you can search for jobs and apply directly from Good & Co’s Culture Fit Jobs app.
The Monster job search app is designed much like a dating app: applicants can swipe right to apply for a job and left to ignore it. We also receive a notification when an employer to whom we have sent their CV wants to give us a job interview. Another feature is an in-app service that offers job search advice and answers questions about using the app.
The Monster job search application is for use through the jobs posted on the Monster site. Some job descriptions now feature videos made by employers, recruiters, and other hiring specialists.
In short, there is no shortage of choice when it comes to job search applications. This list is just an overview of all the apps you might find useful.
