Most people have Smartphones. Whether it’s the latest Apple iPhone, Android or Blackberry – millions of people use their phones on the go. Jobseekers regularly use resume tools but did you know Smartphones are also a great resume and job search tool? Here is how to utilise their technology if you are looking for a job.

• Use social media sites to look for jobs and network. Most Smartphones have social site apps where you can download Facebook, Twitter and Linked In to your desktop. Using these sites you can search for jobs, network with people in your industry and follow recruitment companies.

• Browse the internet while away from your desk. It’s unrealistic to think you are going to be at your computer every minute of your job search. But using a Smartphone you can keep in touch with all the latest vacancies. Use your web browser to search the net for new jobs and employment news. Bookmark any vacancies that look of interest and consider applying for them when you are back at your desk.

• Download apps. Many job sites and employment agencies have mobile apps which you can download and use on the go. The apps vary but generally speaking they allow you to access new vacancies automatically, update your online professional profile and apply for jobs.

• Have your email inbox accessible on your phone so you are never out of reach. If an employer needs to contact you and replies to your job enquiry you will receive it automatically and can respond which will demonstrate you are efficient and organised.
