Finding a job is no fun: you have to search all over the place for the right openings, interviews are anything but relaxing, and worst of all, if that works out, you end up with a job. But seriously, you need one, or will at some point, and that’s why there’s JobAware.
JobAware’s a one-stop employment-finding app connecting you to your ideal career by providing a bevy of pertinent research and helping you manage it all on your iDevice, created by a SCAD grad who came up with the idea when he decided to relocate to San Francisco “for the higher-paying jobs and stability”, so somebody should probably tell this guy about those earthquakes. Just enter a search term (job title, company, etc.), and it’ll auto-find openings near you, or you can search 200k+ international cities and view the amount of jobs per capita and US Bureau of Labor Statistics-derived salary comparison data and charts with a range of average annual earnings for everything from registered nurses to athletic trainers, because what kid doesn’t want to grow up to be those old Deion sneakers with the Velcro strap? Job’s “Track” feature lets you separately organize your finds by Dream, Second Choice, and Third Choice jobs as you move from Interview through Hired; it also connects to contacts on LinkedIn and displays their company's available gigs via the Discovery tool, which surprisingly looks nothing like Paul Teutul, Sr.
The app’ll also give you tips on job-related moves (resume writing, interviewing, salary negotiation), and you can soon expect algorithm-driven, connection-based "intelligent recommendations", one of which is presumably “don’t you dare get a job, they suck”.
