Job Search Engines are a part and parcel of graduates’ lives these days. I would speculate that graduates spend the same amount of time searching for jobs as they spend on Facebook or Twitter. To be honest, job earch engines haven’t improved or innovated since the start of civilisation, or more accurately, in the last decade or so. Or so I thought, until I saw the name: “ApplyApp.ly” in one of the LinkedIn groups I’m a member of. Next thing I know, I am on it and looking at jobs that match my skills and are right in front of me, waiting for me to apply!
What is ApplyApp.ly?
In this post I will review ApplyApp.ly which matches skills from your CV or LinkedIn profile with jobs in a specific area. ApplyApp.ly has also got the additional functionality of matching jobs with your Myers Briggs personality.
It ranks jobs in descending order of percentage of suitability to your skills. This saves time compared to generic job search engines, which give all the jobs in a particular area or based on keywords you enter.
In the age of social networks and online recruitment, ApplyApp.ly provides a good solution for reducing your time in finding jobs and freeing up your time for high-quality applications for the jobs you’re suited for.
Is ApplyApp.ly user-friendly?
At Career Geek, we review job search applications using certain parameters and with this in mind, I have to rate ApplyApp.ly on its technical and usability form, which, I am happy to say, ApplyApp.ly satisfies to a very good standard. The application is easy to use and has a very simple, non-cluttering, straight-forward interface. Something that is missing from most other job search applications.
When you visit ApplyApp.ly it gives you the option of either linking your LinkedIn account or copying/pasting your resume. After that you only need to choose your geographic location of work and personality type and let ApplyApp.ly do its magic and lo and behold, in seconds you will have jobs matching your skill in ranking order. If you don’t know your personality type, then ApplyApp.ly is offering a Myers Briggs test package for $29.95 (original price $59.95)
Simple. Although we would like to see a demo video of it. As they say, seeing is believing.
Cost of ApplyApp.ly
ApplyApp.ly is a good product, an application that is helpful and can only progress from its current stage. So then comes the question, how much does it cost to have jobs matched to your personality and skills in a geographic location you choose? Should be FREE to use isn’t it?
Well, ApplyApp.ly is FREE to use and we like that! At Career Geek we want to see the best deals and quality applications for graduates and ApplyApp.ly makes jobs search very effective and it’s free to use.
ApplyApp.ly – Job Hunting Tool
To summarise our review, we give a big thumbs up to ApplyApp.ly in for what it does. I definitely recommend it, and hope that the developers add a lot more geographic locations than are presently available.
I hope to see at least London getting on the work map within ApplyApp.ly. But otherwise, there isn’t any reason not to try ApplyApp.ly for job search and application.
