Indeed.com presents itself as the number one search engine for jobs, and they make a very persuasive argument. Their site hosts millions of jobs at a time from thousands of companies, and they manage to do this by scouring both company websites and job boards. The results are a comprehensive marketplace for jobs throughout the world. Rather than serving as a host for potential employers, where they typically pay the platform to broadcast their message, Indeed is simply a search engine for job listings, allowing them to cast a wider net and provide each of their users with a more expansive range of career opportunities. While Indeed.com is useful enough as a site you can access through an ordinary web browser, the mobile app only increases its functionality. You can accomplish anything you'd want to do through the Indeed.com interface through the mobile app regardless of where you happen to be or what you happen to be doing. One of the reasons that the Indeed job search app works so well is because it takes the best functions of a social media platform and the Google search engine and combines them together in a format catered to the need of Indeed's market. Functionally, anyone who's navigated through the dedicated app for Google can get a quick grasp on how things work. The job search screen serves as your main point of interaction for the Indeed interface, and entering anything in the search box will automatically spill out a feed of results ordered according to relevance. Users can additionally filter their results according to a wide number of criteria. If you have specific standards about pay rates, flexibility for where you're willing to work, or preferences in whether you're looking for full time, part time, or contract work, you have a lot of opportunities to slim down the results and zero in on what works for your career. Given the huge catalog of jobs available through Indeed, this is a much needed practical necessity. But you can do a lot more with the Indeed app than simply browse potential job listings and set them aside for later. Using the app as a means to bookmark jobs for later is a useful option, of course. Clicking on each job listing will provide you with comprehensive details on what the employer is looking for as well as a link back to their main page. A simple share icon allows you to quickly alert friends to any potential opportunities using a number of different media platforms, but you can also save the job for later viewing. But if you already have a resume loaded up into your Indeed.com account, you an do a lot more than that. The ability to send out a resume or write an email manually is available through a single button click.
