Using the app, job hunters share information about their expertise and personal interests, creating networks to make the quest more pleasant, and with any luck, quicker, media reports said.
A messaging feature lets compatible users instantly contact one another.
This app is very helpful for students who are just out of college and have no friends who can help them out in their job hunting.
"As most people find jobs through friends, relatives, and colleagues, this app will solve this problem and will also make an excellent career tool," co-founder Nathan Bernard was quoted as saying.
The Coffee app is currently available for iPhone and iPad.
