Say hello to a superior job search with the new LinkUp app
Goodbye old school newspapers and career fairs! Today a whopping 77 percent of job seekers use a mobile app to find employment opportunities. The right app can make it easy to find your dream job, but the wrong app can make the process a nightmare full of headaches, lost time and missed opportunities.
Fortunately, LinkUp has raised the bar again for job seekers by announcing a new and improved version of its popular iPhone application. Sure, there are a lot of job search apps out there, but not all are created equal. We’re confident none have the same caliber of quality job content that ours does.
The LinkUp Job Search Engine app enables users to search for jobs and apply for them directly on employer websites, anytime, anywhere. So go ahead and apply for that amazing opportunity while sitting at the park with Fido or while watching TV in bed. No one will ever know.
Because all jobs are updated daily, you can feel confident about receiving timely alerts and being one of the first candidates to submit an application. Like always, the job seeker is always the priority, so there’s never any spam, phishing, hoaxes or duplicate job postings. Additionally, the download is free; we wouldn’t have it any other way.
With a fresh look and feel, you’ll cruise through the streamlined navigation and be impressed by the enhanced features. It’s simply a better way to mobile job hunt. The app connects iPhone users to LinkUp’s database of more than 2 million jobs, pulled directly from 50,000 company websites.
Exciting features of the app include:
- Search job listings found only on company websites.
- Basic and advanced search functionality.
- Save interesting jobs to favorites.
- Save searches to email alerts and be notified of all new matching jobs.
- Apply to job openings straight through the iPhone.
“We are incredibly excited about this release because it provides LinkUp’s legacy high-quality job content, but with a newly overhauled user interface that is easier to navigate,” said Mike Phenow, chief technology officer. “With mobile making up more than 40% of LinkUp’s search traffic, our mobile app efforts highlight our commitment to providing relevant job search solutions to users where they need them most,” said Phenow.
While the job application process is more sophisticated than ever, the wrong technology can actually make the process more time consuming and frustrating. You need the right app in your job hunt arsenal if you want to find the perfect position without any hassle. Download LinkUp’s Job Search Engine iPhone app from the app store on iTunes. Updates to LinkUp’s iPad and Android apps are planned for the future.
