Apply to jobs and talk to employers in one app
How your phone might be the key to finding your next role.
We’re all spending more time on our phones, whether on social media to pass the time in quarantine or Zoom calls with friends, and that downtime is critical to our mental health during a global pandemic and economic upheaval.
But millions of Americans are still out of work, and many others are continuing to look for better opportunities. New features recently released to the CareerBuilder job search app (and job seeker profiles) are making your job hunt more efficient to get you hired, faster.
Here are three ways you can use just a sliver of your timeto update your resume, apply to jobs and connect directly to companies – all from your smart phone.
Find us in the App Store or on Google Play
The CareerBuilder job search app now allows you upload three different resumes and guides you through completing your job seeker profile, giving you flexibility with applications and showcasing your personality to potential employers. Plus, you can search for jobs near you at any given moment, and filter them by location, part-time jobs, hourly wage and work from home opportunities.
Build your resume on the go (or from the couch)
Gone are the days of obsessing over resume templates, painstakingly adjusting margins and fussing with formats. Our AI resume builder – accessible via browser and the app – will create one for you. Using billions of data points collected over 20 years, and standard job duties and skills, our tool takes care of the basics so you can add the experiences that make you unique. Creating a great resume takes only minutes and will put you on the path to the right role, just using the same device you use to scroll Instagram and call your friends.
Keep all your communications in one spot
Recruiters and hiring managers utilize email, texting, messaging tools and phone calls to chat with potential employees. And you can access those direct messages right from the app. Your email address stays private through an encryption-like process, making communications secure. Plus, you have the ability to subscribe to employers’ emails and communications,manage your preferences for these messages and notifications, and do it all from your CareerBuilder account on the mobile app.
