Job Search Apps and Sites: At Your Service

Monday, June 18 at 9:30 a.m.

A job search is like any search – for a new home, new car, or looking for love – it’s a numbers game. For each of those searches, there’s an app, or a site, for that. Apps and sites can help you stay connected and on top of your job hunt while you’re on the go. Are you ready to find your perfect match using an app? With a selection of apps and sites to kick off our discussion, we’ll take a crowd-sourcing approach to coming up with the best job apps and sites all job seekers should know about.
