Looking for a job is tough, especially in the current economical climate. Jobs are scarce, every employer wants previous experience and the whole process can be genuinely demoralising. Proven Job Search is an app that wants to take some of the stress and pressure out of finding a job, by making the application process as simple and as painless as possible, with some hopefully positive results.
There is a large database of jobs available, courtesy of Craigslist, Simply Hired and Beyond.com. Unfortunately the app only displays results in North America at the moment, so its intended audience is rather exclusive. The app enables the user to search by location and by job title to find the job they want. Once they have found one they like the look of, they can favorite it, send it to a friend, view it on the web, or apply directly through the app itself.
This is done by uploading and sending a pre-existing resume or cover letter via Dropbox or the official site, which can then be downloaded to the app and stored for bulk applications. There is also the option to craft a resume or cover letter within the app itself, which helps users to create a professional-looking and easily-editable document in no time. Some positions require an alternative method of application, but the app will direct users accordingly.
All in all, Proven Job Search is a great app for assisting those who are currently looking for employment. The layout is no-frills and all-business, making searching and applying for multiple positions at once a breeze. In my opinion, anything that makes the process of looking for a new job easier is a must-have, and for that reason, I can't recommend it enough.
