Looking for a job and you think LinkedIn is your biggest saviour? Think beyond this networking site; we bring you a list of apps that will help you land your dream job, because just job-browsing will not get you there.

Pocket Resume:

Before you post your resume on LinkedIn and wait for the hiring manager to call, you need to revamp and polish your CV. Pocket Resume is the answer to your prayers for a crisp and professional resume. All you need to do is fill in your experience and qualification details, then choose a design and Pocket Resume has your CV ready! Users can also use the app to build their own website or online portfolio without writing a line of code. Since most things in life are not free, Pocket Resume is for Rs 30 on your Apple phone.


Once your resume is ready, register on Switch. There are times when you have applied for a job and did not know how to take the conversation forward, this is where Switch comes in handy. While browsing for jobs, if you’re interested in a position, swipe right. Recruiters do the same for prospective employees. If there’s a match, Switch facilitates a conversation between you and the hiring manager. And app is free of cost.

Jibber Jobber:

After you’ve browsed for jobs and applied for them, turn to JibberJobber. Where you’ve applied, which follow-up emails you’ve sent, and the status of your various job applications, JibberJobber allows you to keep all of that information in one place. It also helps you to store contacts, create to-do lists, and keep tabs on certain companies to get notifications on job openings and company news. This is also a free app.

Job Interview Questions:

This is the most important phase in your job search: The interview. And helping you through this difficult process is Job Interview Questions. This app will throw questions at you and give you tips on how to answer them effectively. You can also record yourself and make notes on how you can improve.


No job hunt is complete without the mandatory LinkedIn browsing. With 106 million active users, LinkedIn is one of the most effective job search tools.
