Proven Job Search is a free app that allows users to job hunt on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. In a recent update, however, the app's developer has added the option for iDevice owners to compose, import, and edit resumes from within the application itself. In addition to this useful feature, users of the app can now also search and apply for jobs that are listed on SimplyHired. The changes have appeared in version 1.8.0 of Proven, which launched in the App Store on April 19. As outlined in a press release explaining the app's update:
Proven (www.proven.com), the on-the-go employment app, announced today the release of an easy-to-use resume wizard for iOS systems, as well as the integration of one of the largest online databases for jobs, Simply Hired. Previously released for Android, the feature is now available for all users to build resumes from scratch directly within the app and send them to job listings on Craigslist and Simply Hired.
In the new version of Proven, users have the option either to import their resume from an email account, the Web, or Dropbox, or alternatively can construct a brand new resume from within the application itself. From here, iDevice owners may edit their resume on the go, adding information on their mobile device. You can create as many different resumes as you like, and all can be housed within Proven. Besides the recently added resume wizard and SimplyHired integration, Proven Job Search also includes a number of other helpful features. As outlined in the app's release notes, these include:
