Job Search by Indeed

By Indeed.com

Overview

This app browses multiple listings, then offers up the combined results. You can then save your favorites. While we wouldn't use a mobile app as our sole job search tool, we'd make this one part of our process.

Just like its no-frills parent website, Indeed.com, the Job Search app by Indeed begins your employment hunt with a simple prompt. Enter what type of job you want to find and where you’d like to find it (the app will even search based on your current location, if you wish). Job Search will then provide you with a long list of job openings, complete with the position title, employer, location and how many days the position has been listed on Indeed.

Once you tap on an opening, the app shows a more detailed summary of the position, or you can tap View Job to read the position summary on the employer’s website. You do not, however, leave the app. You will most often find that hopeful “Apply” button on the actual job-posting page.

If the position seems to suit you or a friend, you can also email the job description or save it for future reference. To save a job, just star the position. You’ll need an Indeed account to do this, but with an account, you can view all of your saved job openings on Indeed’s website or app, as well as access job alerts based on your settings. It’s a simple sign-up process and worth it if, in fact, you do get a job through Indeed.

Job Search will also save jobs you viewed on the homepage, so when you launch the app next time, you’ll see your previous searches for reference. Indeed is a simple, somewhat unexciting app, but once you come across that exciting job opening, you’ll have the chance to jump at the opportunity, wherever you are.
