App Idea for Job-Hunting Process

I imagined a mobile app that would ease the job-hunting process for student/rising-professionals. This app would help job candidates in keeping their materials organized. It would feature options available to use all during the job search process, from finding out about the opportunity all the way to helping with the job interview

Things the app will feature:

Applications/Materials Tab:

This tab will show the job candidate all current, open, unfinished applications that he/she has. The materials tab will detail what each position opening is requiring. A “needed materials” tab will send reminders to the person’s phone telling them what professional clothing options they still need to obtain.

Question of the Day:

This section will make sure the job candidate stays on top of all that goes on with the company they are applying too. The Question of the Day will ask questions like “What is the purpose of the company?” “What clients do they work with?” “What type of stuff does the company cover?” The Question of the Day will serve as a sort of quiz for the job candidate to make sure he/she is familiar with the company before the interview.

Reminders

The app will send out email and text message reminders telling the job candidate when they need to pick up a recommendation letter by (from a professor, work supervisor, etc).

Social Media

In order to stay in tip top shape and have a good online presence, the app will tell the job candidates what social networks he/she is lacking and need to sign up for.

      • Great question! It would sort-of solely be for helping prepare for a job position already found. I envisioned it having another tab that would give a “recommended” list of places to apply based on positions found
