Mobile Job Apps: LinkedIn


Last week we discussed a bunch of free web-apps that can help your job search improve in various aspects. This week I want to highlight different mobile apps that can help you with a job search as well. When you are commuting to work or school, taking a break for a coffee, or having lunch etc. most people always have their smart phone or some sort of mobile device on them. The expression goes, “The best camera is the one that you have with you,” well now the best job search tool is the one that you have with you.

We blogged about the benefits of having a LinkedIn profile a while back, and hope by now you have signed up. Be sure to download the LinkedIn mobile app to enjoy all the functionality of the professional network on-the-go. The UI is cleverly put together with an office motif by giving you a “badge” icon as your profile, a stack of paper as your updates, a stack of mail for your inbox, and more. Through the app you can adjust your status updates, browse the profiles of others in your network, browse open job positions, and plenty of other options. Download the app and let us know what you think!

Blogging forward,
