Are You Using Your Mobile Device To Find Jobs? You Should Be

By Todd B Bavol

     Finding a job today is a challenge. You do have many sources to consider. You could spend some time using the newspaper as they did ten years ago. You likely have dozens of tools available online to help you to store and send out your resume. But, what about your smartphone? Are you using your mobile device for job applications? You could be. More employers than ever are realizing the importance of providing this option to incoming applicants.

Applying Onsite
     Some of the best and biggest employers are using Internet website designs to allow them to interact properly with mobile devices. This means that can find a job using your smartphone. You visit the company's website and it is optimized to allow you to easily navigate it from your smartphone device. More so, you can apply right on the site for the job. Job applications like this do range widely but many sites are making it work.

Third Party Apps
     Many of the largest online job sites are using tools to allow individuals to communicate with potential applicants using a mobile device. If one of the sites you are using is one that allows this type of feature, it may be a good idea to use it. Find out if the job site has an app to make it easier for you to find out what the latest job ads are and apply for them online right from your phone. You should be able to access your resume, browse through the current ads and to submit your application just as you would if you were on the actual site.

Why It Matters
     Why should you be using a mobile device to find a job? Today, there are dozens if not thousands of people applying for the same position. If you do not act quickly, chances are good you will miss being one of the first to apply. Does this really matter? It could mean the difference between someone reading your job app and not. More so, you need to be able to get to those job apps faster. Why not use that time you are sitting on the bus or the time you are spending waiting for your child's practice to end to apply for jobs. It may be one of the best ways for you to connect to potential employers on your time. It is a simple way to get the most from the application process.
