Searching for a job is sort of like online dating: You create a profile, highlight all of your assets and then wait for The One to reply to your message, er, cover letter.
Kind of exhausting, if you ask us.
If you want to avoid all the formal hoopla, then you should try nspHire (free for iOS and Android), a job-searching app that takes a Tinder-like approach to recruiting.
First, fill out your nspHire profile, which looks a lot like a LinkedIn page. Next, check off job criteria, such as location, industry, salary range and full-time, part-time or freelance. The app then combs through more than 4 million jobs worldwide, from companies like Deloitte, MedStar Health and Ogilvy & Mather.
The best part? You can avoid an awkward moment at the coffee machine with your HR manager by searching anonymously with your photo, name and other identifying details hidden.
Once nspHire has filtered all the matches, use the Tinder-like interface to start networking--swipe left to pass, swipe right to apply. If you and the employer both ?like? each other, a recruiter can start a conversation via the app?s chat feature. If only all relationships were this easy.
