Excited to finally graduate? No idea how you will ever get employed and earn your own money? Do not worry, in addition to Debut, we have found a few useful apps that will help in your journey towards employment. 

1. CV-Library Job Search
With 4.5 stars out of a total 26 reviews, this app seems to ease the search for a job quite a lot. Users praise the time saving aspect of the app, which allows you to look for jobs while you’re on the go. Create a personal profile and upload your CV and you’re good to go. Moreover, the app seems to remember your search history, which helps it come up with related job offers in future. 

2. JOB TODAY – find jobs in 24hrs
As the name of the app implies, employers will get back to you within 24 hours, which immensely accelerates your job hunt. This app allows you to send your application with a single click and gives you the chance to directly message your potential employer. Primarily specialised in helping people find jobs in restaurants and retail, the variety of jobs might be a little limited, but if you’re interested in working in those fields this app is definitely for you. 

3. Indeed Job Search
Again, a crowd-pleaser with an average of 4.5 stars. Indeed makes it quick and easy to find a job in over 60 countries. Aside from the classic full-time job, Indeed offers part-time, freelance and even internships. Users seem to be satisfied with the frequent updates and easy accessibility, so if you’re new to the job hunt (which you probably are), Indeed might be one of the best ways to help you get started. 

4. YapJobs
A Job Search Focusing on jobs in hospitality, retail and customer service, Yap keeps you up- to- date by constantly refreshing your search results. There is no need to upload a CV, simply edit your own profile and increase the likelihood of being found by a nearby employer that matches your search criteria. 

5. CareerBuilder
For this one, you don’t even have to sign up and create an account. Upload your resume and search jobs based on location, industry or company. The newest update even allows you to view how many times your resume has been viewed and by whom. You can also save jobs if you’re in a rush and apply for them later. Like CV-Library Job Search, this app will also suggest jobs for you based on your application history.
