With the economy the way it is and unemployment on the rise, many people are turning to job search websites to help them in the application process. Employment website Monster.com has now made the process even more simple, by launching its Job Search app for Android devices.
However, as Caitlin M. Foyt from androidapps.com points out, you do have to fill in your credentials, provide your job history and upload a resume and cover letter to complete an online profile, it is advisable that you start the process off on a computer rather than your smartphone.
Once users have created their profile and they log into the application’s main menu, they will see six different categories to choose from. This includes “Job Search,” “Saved Jobs,” “Saved Searches,” “Resumes,” “Cover Letters,” “Apply History” and “Settings.”
When you then do a job search, the app enables you to filter your results by job title, location and skills/keywords. Although the Monster.com Job Search app does enable you to apply for the job directly through the app, some prospective employers require you to submit your application via their own website.
The layout of the app — which is free to download from the Android Market – is fairly straightforward, which makes it easy to navigate. Would you use a job search app such as the one from Monster.com?
