In today’s digital age, it’s easier than ever to find job openings. You can search for roles virtually anywhere at any time. As long as you have a mobile device and internet access, you can work toward securing the position of your choice. Here are five advantages of searching for a job on your mobile devices.
Apps for companies such as CareerBuilder let you search for jobs by keyword and location, email job openings, create your resume and track your contacts. You can also instantly, daily or weekly be notified by text, email or social media when openings are posted. Because the odds of your application being read significantly decrease if you don’t apply within 72 hours of a position being posted, it’s important apply for jobs as they become available. In addition, apps provide a more direct connection to a hiring manager than showing up at the office and trying to meet with them.
Utilize Social Media
LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter are among the top sites used for finding roles. You can follow the companies, ask for job postings to be sent to your account, view information about the company and role requirements, participate in discussions and find out what employees have to say about working for the organization.
Search Job Sites
Indeed or CareerBuilder let you upload your resume when applying for positions. Also, CareerBuilder lets you apply for roles using your smartphone and saves your resume in the company’s database.
Use LinkedIn’s mobile app for networking. You can update your profile, learn about companies that have open roles, and view, apply to or save job postings. Ensure your account contains a professional headshot, your summary contains keywords relevant to your field, and your experience and skills section shows why you’re the top candidate for a position. Also, provide your full contact information so employers can reach you by phone, email or social media.
Send a Thank-You Note
Ensure each interviewer receives a thank-you note within 24 hours of your meeting. Show your appreciation for taking the time to talk with you. Also, include one or two topics you discussed and two or three reasons why you’re the best candidate for the position. Mention that you look forward to hearing from the interviewer soon.
