February 3, 2017 (No Comments) by theSharpeUser

If you’re currently on the job hunt then you’ll know that it can be a daunting and stressful process. There are hundreds of job advertising websites and there are only so many you can trawl through before you lose the rag altogether. If you lose your cool, you run the risk of missing out on that dream job, and that’s no good now is it.

Thankfully for you, we at The Sharpe have put together a list of the best apps to use for the job hunt, two of which can help prepare your CV as well as your interviewing skills.

LinkedIn

linkedinUnless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll be well aware of what LinkedIn’s all about, but here’s a quick synopsis anyway. LinkedIn is essentially a social platform for the professional world. You can create a fully customisable career- based profile to make it easier to connect to people in similar fields of work.

It’s a fantastic way to build your professional network and keep informed on the latest industry news. Users can search people, jobs and companies with ease and get updates from each of these categories that are relevant to their profession. It is also a great way to advertise yourself and your skills as you can show other users what you have achieved in your career as well as your interests. You are given suggestions of who and what to follow/contact based on your profile and connect with people you already know. It is like the app equivalent of the saying “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.”

IrishJobs.ie

irish_jobs_ieThe Irishjobs.ie app will help you narrow your search when looking for your ideal job or if you‘re taking the next step in your career. You can search through thousands of jobs from over 900 leading employers in more than 30 industry sectors based in Ireland.

Find and apply for the latest jobs available in full-time, part-time, permanent and temporary contracts. The search can be refined by location to help find vacancies near you. If you don’t want to miss out on any potential job opportunities, you can create job alerts and get push notifications on the latest jobs. You can easily apply at a time that suits you, just simply forward the details to yourself via email.

Indeed Job Search

indeed_job_searchThe Indeed Job Search app has a similar premise to the IrishJobs.ie app, but includes jobs in destinations all over the world in its database. This app will allow you access to over 16 million jobs from thousands of companies across the globe. With jobs sourced in over 60 countries in 28 languages, your options become considerably wider. If you don’t want to fly the nest just yet, you can also find vacancies in cities near you using your phone’s GPS.

You can apply for positions within the app using your ‘Indeed Résumé’ and if you don’t want to apply there and then, you have an option to set a reminder on your phone to apply later. Another helpful feature of the Indeed Job Search app is a company rated system that is evaluated by its employees.

Job Interview Questions App by SimuGator

job_interview_questionsNot exactly a name that rolls off the tongue but the Job Interview Questions app is worth checking out. There are hundreds of websites and apps that are there to aid your interview preparation but this app has an incredibly unique and beneficial feature. You can record yourself answering the simulated interviewer’s questions and play it back so you can review not just what you say but also how you say it.

The Job Interview Questions app offers three full-length interview simulations in video format including over 50 questions asked by different interviewers with varying interview styles. Critique your answers to aim for well delivered, concise answers whilst also analyzing your body language and eye contact. The Job Interview Questions app also offers in- depth advice about how to answer every question. It costs €0.99 in the iTunes app store but it’s worth it so you can be fully prepared for your next interview.

We hope you find these apps helpful, now get out there and get that job!
