10 Apps for the Career-Driven Student

Starting the career process isn’t easy. There are skills to build, resumes to send, and interviews to conquer. But with all things that aren’t easy, there are heroes out there building apps to help you out! That’s why we rounded up this quick list of career-centered apps.

Dashes

1. LinkedIn

The world’s largest professional social network is conveniently available in mobile form! LinkedIn is the easiest way to get started on networking – super important for students!

2. Switch

Swipe. Swipe. Match! Sound familiar? Switch uses a very Tinder-esque method to match you with the perfect job. Instead of going through tedious job boards, you’ll just have to swipe right to apply. The best part? Actual hiring managers are on the app waiting to match with you!

3. Indeed

As the world’s #1 job search site, Indeed is perfect for your job hunt. This app not only allows you to search and apply for jobs, but it also lets you follow and receive updates from your favorite companies.

4. Interview Prep Questions

Job interviews can be nerve-racking, especially for college students and recent grads who aren’t used to handling these seemingly stressful interrogations. This flashcard app will take you through the most common interview questions and provide helpful suggestions on how to answer them.

9. Glassdoor

Of course we love that Glassdoor offers a job search feature, but what really makes it unique is that it gives access to company reviews. Real employees give insights on office culture, salary, benefits and more. You’ll get a good idea if a company is the best fit for you!

App Store | Google Play

 

10. Resume Star

The hardest part about creating a resume is often formatting it so that it’s precise and clean, yet informative. Resume Star requires you to simply fill in your information, and then the app takes care of the tricky parts. The result? A perfectly formatted resume that’s ready for use!
