It even allows you to specify a time & place then looms for people willing to meet up nearby using geo-targeting.
2. LinkUp: The difference between this job search app and others out there is that is doesn’t just search a job board with postings that have been directly submitted. Instead, it looks for jobs on more than 22,000 individual company sites while sifting through the category of you choice.
3. Career Igniter: This app allows you to build your resume online and make sure it looks great in a pinch.

4. BusyBee: This app is great for freelancers.
