Best Job Hunting Apps for College Students
Ironically, finding a job takes work and you don’t want to end up like Tommy from Martin with an invisible job. That is why you need to begin looking for work now and the best way to do that is to download some job hunting apps on your phone. There are plenty of apps to choose from but here are the best 5 that are proven to make your job hunt less stressful.
Glassdoor is an all-in-one job hunting app. You can hunt for jobs while simultaneously reading reviews on the company and looking over salary information for various positions at that company. Another amazing feature is that once you get a job interview with the company that you apply for then you can go back to Glassdoor and look at the typical interview questions that they ask for different positions and read reviews on the interview experiences of other people.
Indeed is known for its amazing job search capabilities, but they have branched out and created an app just for college students. On IndeedCampus you can input a specific major and get a plethora of job postings that are hiring in your field. This app is for everybody, but if you are looking for entry-level jobs as a recent or soon-to-be graduate then this is one app that you should download.
3) LinkUp Jobs
When job searching, you will more than likely fall victim to applying for jobs that do not really exist. You’ll see the amazing posting that says “Earn $50,000 in a week” and you’ll apply before you realize that this sounds fishy. This app is amazing because it puts an end to becoming a victim to false job postings. LinkUp pulls job postings directly from the website for companies so that you are only applying to credible job postings. You can also get job alerts sent to your phone based on new job postings that are related to your major. This app will grant you peace of mind and success during the stressful job search.
4) LinkedIn Students
LinkedIn is not just a website for professional social media profiles. LinkedIn has so many different avenues that people don’t discover and one of them is LinkedIn for Students. LinkedIn Students is for college students and it has more than just job listings. It gives you tips on building a great LinkedIn profile and teaches you how to network with other professionals on LinkedIn. That helps a job hunt become more successful, because you will be doing so much more in additional than just clicking “apply” on job
Pathsource really lives up to its name, because it is truly a source for your path. This app is essential in job hunting, because it tells you what you should be hunting for. First, you can take an assessment to see how much your salary needs to be in order for you to live the life you desire to live. Then, you can take a career assessment which is a series of questions that help them formulate what career you might like. Once you finish the career assessment, then you can browse the possible career titles and the salary, education level, and training experience needed for each one. The best part about this is that it also tells you whether each career title supports your spending needs. The app also has a resume builder, and of course a job board to browse open jobs in your field. With this app you will be on your way to finding the job you’ve always wanted.
