Eight Great Apps for Job Hunting

LunchMeet  This app will connect you to contacts in your LinkedIn account to grab lunch or coffee and discuss career opportunities.

If you're looking for a job in the technology field, it makes sense to give yourself as much of a competitive advantage as you can get. Therefore, to ensure that you're equipped with the very best tools to help you land that perfect gig, CareerBliss.com presents this list of eight great apps for job seekers. The apps cover a broad range of job-seeking requirements—from professional networking to résumé writing to interviewing to logistical planning. Oh, and if you don't want to be placed in the awkward (and potentially dangerous) position of attempting to get away from your current job to take part in a job interview, there's an app for that too: One product here offers video interviews as an alternative to in-person ones. Employers create text questions for job candidates, who can then record and submit video answers on their own time. There's "no more sneaking away for long 'lunches' or calling in sick," CareerBliss reports. CareerBliss is an online job posting/company review/professional advice site.
