Using the iPhone to Find a Job
In this tough market, job applicants need every advantage they can get to find good opportunities. The iPhone and iPod Touch can deliver that edge through a savvy combination of apps designed to find open jobs, prepare candidates for interviews and, now, apply for positions in real time.
With the launch of beamME CV this week on the iTunes store, job seekers can for the first time “beam” a resume, cover letter and electronic business card (vCard) directly from their iPhone or iPod Touch, instantly responding to job opportunities wherever they may be. beamME CV also includes full beam history for easy follow-up, Contact Maps to help remember where meetups took place and the highly optimized beamME experience. There are no downloads, registrations or special hardware required of the resume’s recipient.
Designed in consultation with leading recruiters, beamME CV has quickly become a favorite asset for in-the-know job seekers.
“Candidates need every advantage to connect with job opportunities in this tight market,” said Marc Mencher, CEO of GameRecruiter and 27-year industry veteran. “beamME CV is a powerful tool in a job seeker’s arsenal, and one they can’t afford to be without.”
Now available on the iTunes store, beamME CV is $6.99 for unemployed job seekers, and $9.99 before rebate. beamME CV is also backed by a 30-day unconditional guarantee, and a tree is planted in partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation with every purchase.
