Job search apps
The increased use of mobile devices has also resulted in the development of a number of apps able to assist in your job search. Usually designed to be accessed through mobile devices, these apps are powerful tools that allow you to take your job search with you wherever you go. Many also sync with your LinkedIn profile, allowing you to incorporate your wider professional network into the search and helping to identify potential job leads.
Social media is playing an increasingly important role in all of our personal and professional lives. With a greater number of people using platforms like Facebook and LinkedIn to communicate professionally, the way in which mobile devices provide instant and regular access to such sites is becoming even more useful. Instead of limiting your job seeking to internet searches and firing off CVs, you now have a variety of avenues to explore and new tools at your disposal.
Still some things that are easier on a desktop
Though mobile devices are certainly having an effect on the way we search for jobs, it’s important to remember that some things are still a lot easier on a desktop. The most obvious example of this is creating a CV. While there are useful word processing apps for mobile devices, they lack the levels of customisation found in desktop versions and are far more difficult to use. However, it’s only a matter of time before mobile devices catch up and the whole application process is easy enough to complete from start to finish on a small smartphone screen.
