best job search apps for Android
Finding work is both easier and harder than it used to be. It’s easier because the magic of the Internet allows you to search large databases and the magic of word processing allows you to create tight, solid resumes and CVs. However, navigating those things can be difficult for some people because not everything is straightforward. There are a ton of places to look, a lot of overlap, and a bunch of accounts to make. It could be easier. In this roundup, we’ll look at the best job search apps for Android! This list is primarily targeted at United States residents. However, some of these are worldwide organizations. We also recommend this one for our India readers!

Price: Free

There are a variety of apps for the self-employed. Uber, Lyft, Rover, Etsy, Door Dash, Pro Referral by Home Depot, and many other similar apps offer opportunities for contractors and freelancers to make money. Most of these are driver positions. Uber, Lyft, Door Dash (and similar companies) all pay decent wages and you get tips. Most of the rest of them have at least somewhat consistent part time work. It all depends on what you want to do. It can be great for making a few extra bucks or as a part time job. Some people even go all the way and make a decent living with these apps full time. They're not job search apps necessarily, but they do offer consistent job opportunities.
