“Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.”

Job search is hard enough. Don’t make it even more so.

2. JobScan

JobScan Results

Not getting a callback from the job application you believe is spot-on? Chances are your resume was rejected by the Applicant Tracking System.

With more applicants than recruiters can handle, many employers are turning to Applicant Tracking System to better manage the volume. Unfortunately most of these are designed to accept/reject applicants based on keywords.

You could be the most suitable candidate in reality but if your resume isn’t optimized with the right keywords to send those signals across, you are going to get ignored.

Jobscan aims to better equip job seekers by analyzing job descriptions and helping applicants easily identify what skills and keywords are most important to a given job listing. By ranking the most important and most frequently-occurring keywords per job description, Jobscan can help give applicants a competitive edge in their job search efforts.

3. JobHero

JobHero

Following up with a job application is arguably just as important as applying in the first place. JobHero helps you keep track and organise your job hunt from start to finish.

The site allows you to add entries for each company you’ve contacted about a job. You can include information on the company, as well as the status of your application. JobHero allows you to set reminders to follow up or add any interviews you receive to the schedule. You can also upload documents such as your resume or cover letters so you have them handy when job searching.

There is even a bookmarklet on your main dashboard that you can use to add job opportunities you find around the web directly to JobHero.

4. Indeed

Indeed

Tried of replicating the same search over and over again on different job boards?

Indeed is an employment-related metasearch engine for job listings. It aggregates job listings from thousands of websites, including job boards, staffing firms, associations, and company career pages. You can even apply directly to jobs on Indeed’s site.

This saves you time and provide a centralized listing to speed up the application process.

5. JobStreet Mobile App

JobStreet

If you could only use one job portal app, it has to be JobStreet.

It allow you to update your resume on the go and do up personalized job alerts delivered to your phone daily.

What I most like about the app is the Jobs Near Me function. For job seekers that prefer a short transit or proximity to where you are staying, the app uses the GPS feature in your phone and mark out the vacancies that are close to where you are.

8. LinkedIn

LinkedIN

Job search isn’t as transactional as before.

Given how connected we are now, many times it is who you know versus what you know.

Keep your relationships warm with LinkedIn, the most popular professional networking tools out there. But it isn’t just about selling yourself with a flattering personal profile. The LinkedIn job board lets you search for open positions in your industry and sort them by date posted, salary and other criteria. The app features a powerful search function to help you find new contacts and connect with them. The near ubiquity of LinkedIn ensures most professionals you meet will already have profiles. Connecting takes just a few moments, and you can do it anywhere if you’re using the mobile app.
