What can job seekers do to get the most out of a job searching app?

After gaining as much information about job search apps, comparing them and choosing the ones that fit your needs best, the rest is up to the user, to benefit the most from these apps. Here are some tips on how to do that:

Create a fitting, succinct resume:

A good resume can land you your dream job, so be careful while building a resume for these mobile apps. 

  • Make it as concise as possible. A lengthy resume is more of a headache to go through, on a mobile screen. 
  • Do not forget to highlight important points.
  • If you customize your resume according to your needs, your chances of getting a desired job increase. 
  • Write a cover letter only if you are going to make it stand out from your resume.

Tailor & Customize Your Resume For Keywords:

Always use exact and distinctive keywords for your job search. Apps, exactly like every other online search medium, use keywords to connect employers and employees. Get your application to the top of the pile.

Use Teal’s free keyword and skill analysis tool feature to highlight what words to add to your resume so you can beat ATS systems and stand out to recruiters.

Conclusion:

There are so many apps that you can use in order to search for career opportunities, but the ones mentioned above are tried and tested by many users. Each of these apps has some unique features or aspects to it which have been mentioned in the description. Hope it helps you to choose the app that suits your needs best.

Whether or not you’re using an app, Teal’s free job tracking software is the most efficient way to manage a job search.

Good luck with your new venture!
