Summer jobs scarce, apps make it easier

By Updated on

You would have thought that the tough times were behind us, but it still seems as if we have a long way to go. The reason we say this is due to recent reports that summer jobs are scarce. However, do not get too disheartened, as there are still jobs out there – you just need to look harder. Thankfully apps make it much easier and take at least some of the pressure of you.

With a host of apps to choose from you may find that knowing which is best will be tougher than finding and going for that all-important job interview. Here we will pick three apps that we feel offer the best in features and the best chance of success. The three apps are as follows: Job Finder, JobFinder – search all job sites, and finally Job Frenzy.

Job Finder will keep you up to date with all the latest jobs that come up. The good thing about this tool is how it searches for jobs based on your location first. However, you can select to go further afield if you wish. The app will also remember what your preferences are and remember them for the next time you search for a job. The app costs just $0.99 on iTunes.

Next up we have JobFinder – search all job sites and is said to be the most comprehensive app of its kind on the iPhone – well they would say that. This app allows you to search for a number of different skilled jobs in one click. Not all jobs will show up in the search, only those that match your criteria. More details on this app can be found at Motion or iTunes.

Finally we have Job Frenzy, which will cost you $2.99, although this is a small price to pay if you do find a job. Once you have found a few jobs that think suits your needs, you can email them to yourself from your iPhone. This app makes it so easy, as you can even search for a new job while you are on a break at your current place of employment. For more details visit App Shopper.

We hope that these three apps are of use to you and will help you find that job for you this summer?
