Can You Find a Job on Your Phone?

December 28, 2015

You may not want to start needling your resume or portfolio on your workscreen at your open plan office. It tends to draw curiosity. But your phone is a different story. Here are some mobile apps that can help power your search.


Rather than compete with LinkedIn, Caliber piggybacks onto your LinkedIn network and tries to make it better through chat and reduction of spam. It lets you IM with your LinkedIn contacts and it ranks the requests for chats you get, putting the requests it thinks would most interest you first, so you’re not inundated with spam.


Plow through possible business connections in a Tinder sort of swipe. Weave lets you sift through potential business contacts with a breezy format.


Reach tries to help you keep it local by finding good connections in a close proximity to where you work and live.

Good & Co.

This app seems to really understand millennials. It tries to find out what makes workers happy through games and other exercises. Good & Co. touts itself as a self-discovery app. Using it can allow you to unlock your happiness and find out what type of people you’re compatible with.


Continues the gamification of self-awareness. Hopefully unlocking some secret super power you never knew you had — or at least a skill you’re very good at, but never knew about.

Apps keep getting better at solving problems. These can help you find out more about yourself and all the people near and far from you, in the hopes of building a network that will land you the perfect job (one that pays enough to cover your wireless bill).
