Are you looking for a job? Then, put your smartphone to work. Here are the top new apps career experts say can kick up your job search.
First: The Business Card Reader app. It costs $6, and the app guarantees that you’ll never lose valuable contact information. You use your smartphone’s camera to take a picture of a business card. Then, the app automatically imports the contact information directly into your address book.
Then, the free Jobs by CareerBuilder app lets you search its database of nearly 2 million jobs while you’re on-the-go. You can also use your phone's GPS to find jobs near you, and instantly apply for them, even if you’re waiting in line at the grocery store.
And, the final app that’ll help your job search: The Resume App. Say, you’re at a friend’s party and a guest tells you about a job opening at their company. Simply pull up the Resume App, which will let you quickly edit and personalize your resume. Then, you can submit it directly from your phone. It costs $3.
