20 Apps for Employment

From Millennial Employment Apps to Video-Based Job Apps

— May 12, 2016 — Tech
There are countless job boards across the Internet, but these apps for employment specifically target young professionals who are conducting job searches on the go.

Rather than being overwhelmed by too many postings on a job board, Millennials are choosing to discover potential new jobs in highly engaging ways. This includes apps that feature Tinder-inspired interfaces, gamified tests and video-based databases.

An app like 'Mentat' pairs a user with a virtual assistant to walk them through the hunting process. Similarly, 'Menteer' is a network where a young professional can apply to find a mentor.

These kinds of apps reveal that young professionals are looking for a lot of guidance during the job-hunting process in order to fine-tune the postings that will be the most relevant to them and the skills they can apply to future employment.
