Chron.com/Jobs: not just a job search app

Posted

The Houston Chronicle has launched its next generation jobs mobile application.  Delivering functionality that goes beyond being just another job search app, the Chron Jobs app is an integral part of planning and executing on a long-term career path.

In addition to standard functions like performing a job search, the app also allows: saving previous search queries, sharing job postings via social media and email, and applying for positions directly from a smartphone or tablet. Plus, the app contains a Career Rescue area with helpful tips on topics such as career transition and interview skills.  The app also features up-to-date information on the latest local job fairs, giving the user access to new opportunities with the tap of a screen.

"We designed the app to facilitate the overall job search experience, both for job seekers and for companies hiring," said Rob Cravaritis, executive vice president of sales for Houston Chronicle Media Group.  For job seekers, the app offers a truly comprehensive resource to assist in their career transition.  For businesses, it gives their job postings greater visibility in a platform being used by more and more job seekers, while allowing companies to create a one-to-one relationship with qualified prospects.

The free app is available for download in the App Store for iPhone and the Play Store for Android.  Search for thousands of available jobs or post open positions today at Chron.com/Jobs.
