School’s out for summer and so is your bank account. After the necessary week of vegging out on some terrible TV show and refusing to do anything productive, it’s time to buckle down and get that summer job. But how?
You don’t just “hit the pavement” anymore, flinging your resume willy-nilly hoping someone will bite. This is the age of technology. You fling your resume willy-nilly through email. Much better for the environment, but still just as stressful. Thank goodness for apps. We picked out the best apps for job hunting in the US, there for you when LinkedIn just doesn’t quite cut it (but you should still have a profile there).
Unfortunately, there is no official app for the all-god of local searches, Craigslist, but cPro Craigslist is the next best thing. If you don’t get distracted by all the other postings (free scraps of wood or organic chicken feed), this is a great place to browse potential employment.
If you’ve found a job, you better check out the company. Read reviews of current and previous employees, see average salaries, interview experiences, and job listings. Think of Glassdoor as the Yelp of job hunting.
If you like to create your own schedule, pick and choose what work to do, or are simply a hermit, PeoplePerHour is the app for you. Loads of opportunities for those of you who don’t want a fixed schedule but still want to make some summer bucks.
