Are you looking for a job and do you have an Android device? Forget classified ads in your local dailies. If you have an Android phone, you practically have access to thousands of job postings on several well-known job searching sites.

Here are four of the best Android apps that you can use to search for jobs using your Android smartphone. We can’t always be glued to our computer chairs, and with these applications, you’ll be able to go job hunting efficiently even if you’re not in front of your desktop. All of these apps are free and are essentially smartphone-based access points for Web-based versions of the job sites. I’ve also included a video review of these apps. Don’t miss it. It’s towards the end of the article.

Craigslist Mobile (Free)

Although Craigslist Mobile is not an app designated for finding jobs, the application does perform very well as a local job seeker. You will find that many employers post job openings on Craigslist ranging from small local businesses to nationally large companies.

Using the app is generally simple and is easy to use. It allows you to save posts as your favorites and email the job poster directly from the app itself. The only downside to this app is the unfortunate reality that many scams can be found on this site. So, keep that in mind and be vigilant.

Jobs Search (Free)

Jobs Search is Indeed.com‘s mobile application for the popular job search site. The app has an easy-to-use interface that gives you instant access to a great amount of job postings daily. Plus, if you have an Indeed.com account, you can take advantage of features such as saving job openings and adding job posts to your favorites. All in all, it’s a great application for looking for jobs on the go.

Jobs (Free)

Jobs is CareerBuilder.com ‘s mobile application for navigating through their website. While for the most part, not much is different from Indeed.com’s Jobs Search app, CareerBuilder.com’s Jobs app does pack a few extra features such as uploading resumes and seeing recommended job openings. Of course, these features are only available to those who have an account with CareerBuilder.com. These extra features, of course, give it an advantage over Indeed.com’s app.

Monster Job Search (Free)

Just like the other previously mentioned job-hunting apps, Monster Job Search is MonsterJob.com‘s mobile application for their website. The interface on this app runs incredibly smoothly and gave me a great experience while I was trying it. Navigation around the interface is very easy and the interface itself is very user friendly.

It has almost all of the features that I’d ever look for in a job-searching app: options for uploading resumes, editing cover letters, sharing jobs with friends via email, saving applications for later, and using your geographic location to search for jobs.

Although my personal favorite is the Monster Job Search app, all four job-seeking apps are worth trying out. Undoubtedly, they will be able to help you find jobs that suit you and your expertise. What job-hunting app do you use on your Android device?
