No matter what you’re into or what part of your life you need to optimize, there’s probably an app that will help. From fitness to relationships, from food to travel and beyond, the convenience of having a tool to make sense of it all is somewhat irresistible. However, as we have all come to discover, not all apps are created equal, especially when it comes to searching for your next job opportunity. As a top staffing agency, we recommend that you do your research to be sure you are investing wisely –in terms of both time and money – before you commit, but that takes time. And time is a commodity in itself.
If you are looking for a list of the some of the best job search apps of 2020, our Houston headhunters did their own research and narrowed the field for you just a little. Here’s what they found:
Glassdoor is famous for their company reviews from an employee perspective. It makes sense that their app is geared toward employee happiness too. The job listings give you information on salaries and benefits, and you can find out more about the company’s office culture directly from current and past employees. It also helps you prepare for interviews by giving you “typical” questions to answer and real interview experiences to review.
The AR-powered CareerBuilder app helps you by filtering jobs according to your location. Add your own detailed filters to find jobs that are best suited to your skills and career trajectory. One nifty feature the app offers is the ability to see what skills are needed for specific job titles. This might be something you want to explore if you’re looking to advance. The app also includes a resume builder and a feature that allows you to scan your resume with your phone’s camera and convert it into an editable document.

You might think of Monster as somewhere in between a job search app and a dating app as it allows you to swipe left or right on opportunities and potential employers. Their AI-powered in-app concierge offers job search tips and technical help for the app itself.

ZipRecruiter pulls in opportunities from more than 100 job boards. Once you have set your preferences, it will send you job matches based on your objectives. One unique feature it has is that it will send you a notification every time your resume is viewed.

As a social media site tailored to business pursuits, LinkedIn is unmatched in its access to the world’s top employers. Setting up your profile is free, and so is searching for available jobs. Simply click the job search icon on your homepage and fill out your keywords and filters. The free version gives you a lot of features, but the paid version adds enhanced profiles and the ability to connect directly with hiring managers and strengthen your brand.
