TMJ AndroidApp SearchFields1 A New Way for Android Users to Find Jobs

Search over 400,000 jobs

The job search and discovery process just got easier for Android owners – the TweetMyJobs mobile app is now available for download in the Google Play store.

As a job seeker searching for their next great job opportunity, time is extremely valuable and you don’t want to waste any of it. Using your phone, you can now search for jobs while waiting in line or walking down the street.

The Android app has the same features that iPhone and iPad users have already been using. Take advantage of these features:

  • Search the over 400,000 open jobs we have in our database
  • Narrow down your search by role, industry, or location
  • View jobs near your physical location – on a map or via an augmented reality overlay

Read more about mobile recruiting. The free app is also available in the iTunes store for iPhone and iPad users.

We live in a social world, but we also live in a mobile world. iPhones. iPads. Instagram. People are interacting with the world around them – through maps, photography, instant communication, and more. So why shouldn’t the job search and discovery process be mobile as well? It should be. And it needs to be more efficient.

View nearby jobs through the map feature.

That’s why we just released a new TweetMyJobs mobile app - turning your iPhone or iPod Touch into the ultimate job-searching tool.

The application allows job seekers to search by role, industry and location and view jobs nearby on a map or using an augmented reality overlay.

At once, the TweetMyJobs app is powerful for businesses and seekers alike. For businesses, it enables job distribution and branding in the palm of a job seeker’s hand. Walking down the street or in a crowded mall? No problem – there are jobs around you. For job seekers, the ability to find work in their immediate area and apply via a mobile device is a no-brainer. Seekers can also receive job alerts, where they want them, when they want them. And, of course, the app is free.

For businesses, large and small, the ability to generate “foot traffic,” and local candidates – whether you’re looking to hire a barista or cashier, accountant or nurse, business analyst or CFO – is a superb advantage over competitors that aren’t distributing their jobs and their brand into the mobile world.

Potential employees and employers can now use their mobile devices to find the right job match. Don’t be left behind.
