Essential Apps

    Indeed Job Search


    Job Search is by far the most elegant and powerful app for finding a new job on the iPad. The app has a dead simple user interface and has some fantastic filters. Job Search also makes it very easy to apply for new jobs right within the app. If you are looking for a job in a certain location, the app can also limit results to an exact location. This is a feature not found in many other job finding apps. The app includes saving jobs and other standard features. Job Search will even notify you of new postings when you open the app. We cannot recommend Job Search enough. Job Search is the essential job finding app for the iPad.

    by Monster Worldwide

    Monster HD is the best alternative to Job Search out there. The app has an interface to die for and has a ton of listings to make it worthwhile. The app lets you save favorite jobs and view cover letters/resumes. The app will let you apply for some jobs within the app, but many of the jobs we tried to apply for told us to go to the computer to apply. Monster HD is a great app and a wonderful alternative to the essential app.

    EntryLevelJobsite is another app that disappoints. The app aims to showcase jobs that entry level applicants would be good for. The app fails to deliver on this promise. The app has several senior level positions and other jobs listed that simply are not entry level. The app has a terrible interface, and not worth your time or energy.
