Jobs direct from company websites: Not every company advertises on job boards, so in the past job seekers would have had to go directly to each company website to check for open positions. But with the Job Search Engine app, you can forego the immense effort and see all these job postings in one app -- or in your email box if you set a job alert.
Search jobs in multiple ways: In Job Search Engine, you can search job openings or listings for part-time jobs, work-from-home jobs, engineering jobs, or positions at a non-profit organization, for example, in four ways: by keyword phrases, such as job title; location; company; or category.
Updated daily: LinkUp's jobs are regularly updated, so you know you're only getting active job postings. If you favorite a job, you'll even get a notification when the position is closed by the employer.
No hoaxes or scams: Hoaxes and scams are a common feature of online "job" postings on most job sites. But because on this app jobs come directly from trusted company websites, you can be confident that there are no hoaxes nor scams here.
Easy to apply to jobs: It's a breeze to apply to job openings via the Job Search Engine app. Open any listing, read the job description to see if it's a good fit, then tap the "View job on employer's website" button, and then follow the instructions to apply with your resume.
Favorite jobs: If you don't have time to apply for a job posting when you first come across it, you can save it to Favorites for quick access later via browser or feed reader. You can also email job opportunities you're interested in to yourself to apply to later.
Similar jobs: If one job no longer seems appealing, tap the More button on the bottom rail to open a menu that enables you to view all jobs with this company or view similar jobs at other companies.
Create job alerts: As soon as you launch the app, you'll see two search bars where you can input your ideal position or company name and city you want to work in. Check the box underneath agreeing to receive email alerts and notifications about all the latest matching jobs.
No quick apply jobs: Unlike competing apps, Job Search Engine doesn't allow you to apply to potential employers with your resume in the app in just a couple taps. Instead, you're taken to each individual company's website to start the long and grueling application process there.
If you're a job searcher tired of sifting through all the scammy job listings on search sites like Monster to get to the trustworthy job postings, you'll be glad to know that Job Search Engine only shows you jobs that are posted on reputable company websites. This way you don't have to check myriad job search websites for opportunities and can be confident that the ones you're seeing are legitimate.
