Unemployed? Looking for a job? Your iPhone can help.
Job Serve Connect just recently came out on the App Store and it seeks to help users find a job. Whether you are unemployed, looking for a general career change or just want to browse the job market, Job Serve Connect can help.
The job search options within the app are basic when compared to services from Monster or Workopolis, but it is a solid start. Users search by keywords and choose whether it is a contract job or permanent. The developers are asking for constant feedback, so it will only get better from here.
The one feature I do like is being able to locate jobs “near me” using the iPhone GPS. Users input a search term and then can locate relevant jobs near them (distance tweaking is in the settings). This functionality has interesting applications and I can see future updates expanding on it. Moreover, search history is saved in the app so that users can easily retrieve previously viewed information.
The app also includes a rather helpful “search assistant” which essentially assists users in building the most effective search for jobs. It is a 5-step process and very much resembles the search process at some of the more popular job search websites.
To organize search results, the app includes a “favorites” area where users can save search results and have them emailed when needed. This gives users access to their found jobs on both their iPhone or elsewhere via email.
Job Serve Connect introduces users to a basic job search application and definitely has room for growth, but it is a solid resource for folks in the job market.
Job Serve Connect – Job Search is available on the iTunes App Store for free.
