CareerBuilder's new app makes it easier than ever to conduct your entire job search all from your mobile device.

From banking to dating to ordering pizzas, these days there’s hardly anything you don’t do on your smart phone. So it’s no surprise that when it comes time to look for a new job, many people turn to their mobile devices. That’s why CareerBuilder has created a new mobile app that instantly builds your resume, automatically applies to jobs for you, helps you add skills to advance your career, and even shows you nearby openings using augmented reality.

Full-service

What if you could build a resume quickly and easily on your phone? Using powerful AI technology, CareerBuilder’s new app can help you create a complete, personalized and professionally formatted resume in under a minute.

But it doesn’t stop there. Once you’ve completed your resume, you can set the app to notify you when your resume has been viewed and who’s looking at it, along with alerts about recently posted job openings you may be interested in.

You can even fully automate your job search, by authorizing the app to automatically apply to preferred jobs with targeted companies on your behalf.

Hyper-localization

When it comes to looking for a new job, location is right up there with factors like pay and benefits in terms of importance. Whether you’re interested in commute time home or to your kids’ school, proximity to public transportation, or even just areas with ample dining options, a map-based search is a great way to find all the info you need. That’s why CareerBuilder’s new mobile app allows you to easily locate job opportunities in very specific areas using map-based targeting.

Augmented reality

Of course, better than looking at a map is actually being there. If you feel like doing a little job searching and happen to already be in an area that suits your needs, the CareerBuilder app offers a groundbreaking new option – augmented reality.

Imagine taking a walk down the street or through your favorite shopping center and being able to see available jobs – and what they pay – at nearby businesses all around you. Don’t worry if you’re having a hard time picturing it – you can check out the demo now, and pretty soon experience it for yourself by downloading the app!

Career pathing and upskilling

Sometimes the hardest part of finding a new job isn’t about locating opportunities – it’s deciding what kind of opportunities you’re even looking for. If you’ve ever felt unsure about what career moves are available – let alone which one is best – you’re in good company. According to CareerBuilder research, 54 percent of workers feel like they just have a job, rather than a real career, and 36 percent say they’re underemployed.

To help you identify ways to move your career forward, the new mobile app can show you higher paying jobs that you could be qualified for after minimal training. With the app, you can also identify options for attaining additional, highly sought-after skills that employers are looking for.
