Searching for a job or an internship has always been nerve-wracking. Crafting the perfect resume, finding a place that matches your skillset that is actually hiring, figuring out the most effective way to get the employers attention; all of these things add stress to an already stressful situation. However, in the past few years the process has gotten simpler.

There’s An App For That

With the advent of the Internet, finding job applications and submitting resumes has become exponentially more simple. A simple web search can bring up endless possibilities, but where to start? Reading through each description and evaluating your own skillset is still a time-consuming task.

Thankfully, apps like BOJ have made the job search process even easier. By streamlining the process, more people have quicker access to jobs that are suitable to them without getting bogged down with applications for jobs that don’t fit. Not only are they great for matching you with employers, but they can have other lasting career benefits as well.

Network Building

By being connected to potential employers, you are also connected to a wealth of networking opportunities. What better way to find people in your field than an app designed to connect you to people searching for someone in that field? By using job-hunting apps, you can find other people and employers and expand your network, leading to more job opportunities in the future. Finding the perfect job on the app is just the beginning.

Find What’s Right For You (And The Company)

Entering the workforce can be daunting. Whether you are looking for an unpaid internship to dip your toes into an industry, or are looking for your first “big kid job” with a normal salary, it can be tough to find where to start. However with a convenient app, starting out isn’t so difficult. A lot of the anxiety that comes with being new to a job search is your possible lack of experience in the field, or in general. Using an app designed to match you to an employer can give you confidence. It assures you that you are not applying somewhere where you are vastly under qualified, and employers know that they aren’t going to be wasting their time.

The great thing about using an app specifically is that you are more connected to the employer than ever. You may seek them out as they seek you out. Employers are able to look through potential candidates that may never had applied to that position. It becomes easy for them to seek out certain traits. Gone are the days of waiting for the perfect candidate to drop an application. This creates new opportunities for both the employer and the job seeker.

Changing the Game

Technology is constantly changing the world as we know it. Almost everything we do is accompanied or improved by technology, whether it be planning our day or getting the news. Is it any surprise that technology has changed our job searches? Apps like BOJ allow employers to handpick hires and job seekers to handpick their employers. As this method becomes more popularized, more and more people will be matched to the perfect job, and more companies finding the perfect candidates for the job.

We at BOJ are excited to be part of the new frontier!
