With over three million users, LinkedIn is a business-orientated social networking site with an excellent app for both IOS and Android devices. Not only does the unique LinkedIn Job Search feature allow you to make location-based searches and contact recruiters but LinkedIn Pulse will give you all the latest industry news to help you prepare for interviews and such like. LinkedIn Recruiter is also ideal for those looking to head-hunt talented individuals, so keep your profile in tip-top shape and you could be in with a chance of bagging a fantastic opportunity.
One of the best ways to land your ideal career is to have a CV that stands out from the crowd – and that’s where the Pocket CV app can help. It helps you include everything a prospective employer needs to know, breaking the CV down into seven simple sections. All you need to do is fill each section in before clicking on the preview mode to see how it looks. What’s more, if you have a LinkedIn account, you can import all the data from that to help you write it too.
Interview Prep Questions
First impressions really do count, so it’s essential to prepare for an interview. Interview Prep Questions is a free flash-card app that will get you ready to answer any number of interview questions in a professional, succinct and knowledgeable way. Each question is accompanied by a host of suggestions that will help you form sensible answers and flash cards can either be added to your Faves Deck (for you to practise again and again) or ignored.
Unlike many apps, Linkup takes users directly to jobs on employers’ websites allowing you to discover many vacancies that might not have been advertised on traditional job boards, social media sites or recruiter websites. You can also search for jobs by skill and location helping to narrow down the results.

If you’re looking to showcase your telephone skills, bag a job in a call centre or get any other communication-based role in sales, customer service and such like – this is the app for you. Audio Job Interview allows you to set up and record your own interview helping you to practise what you want to say and how you should say it. You can also attach recordings to your CV helping you to make an impression on employers – pretty cool, huh?
Job apps are there to help you move up the career ladder, so put them to good use and see where your job hunt takes you.
