Thanks to modern technology, from the comfort of their own home, candidates now have the opportunity to optimize their searches and locate the ideal job.

Technology has made the daunting task of searching for jobs much more convenient and within only a few clicks, job seekers can find their perfect job.

Below is a list of four job search tools that job seekers and professionals can use for their job search.

1. LinkedIn LinkedIn is inarguably one of the most popular sites for job seekers. This service makes learning about the prospective job and the organization simple, allowing candidates to understand a company’s work culture and work atmosphere.

Candidates can contact employees at companies they are interested in working for, join groups relating to their field, network with other alma mater alums, and more. Users can build a network of other users who Linked classifies as first-degree contacts. This means the two contacts can directly message each other.

LinkedIn collects data from users’ profiles and categorizes the data into relevant industries to keep users updated on thought leaders’ ideas and the latest industry trends. Job seekers can link to their LinkedIn profiles and blogs to share experiences and advice on essential topics to their company or industry.

2. Teal Teal’s Job Tracker is a simple program with a Google Chrome extension that keeps track of your job hunt while you browse the web. It enables job seekers to maintain a pipeline of bookmarked opportunities from several job boards and retrieve their database from a single location.

Preparing a CV and a cover letter is the most important part of your job search. The format and typeface of the resume can deter hiring managers from considering the application.

Teal’s Job Tracker searches for the right keywords that set the job seeker’s CV apart from the rest. Teal saves time by providing the Job Tracker’s micro-tools such as notes, contact management, and email templates in just a few clicks.
