One of the best ways to streamline your job search and access your progress wherever you are is to use the Indeed mobile app. Here are some of the great benefits of using the Indeed mobile app:

  • Experience a quick and easy job search right at your fingertips
  • Save jobs to your Indeed account
  • Apply easily from your phone with your Indeed CV
  • Discover great companies to work for with Company Pages

How to use the Indeed app

Using the Indeed app allows you to take your job search with you and easily access job postings organized by posts viewed and unviews, applications submitted, employer communications, company pages , etc. 67% of Indeed’s job searches are done from a mobile device. Here are several ways to get the most out of the Indeed app:

1. Download the Indeed Job Search app

First, download the app for free from Google Play or the Apple Store. When you open the app, you will be prompted to sign in, create an account, or continue without an account. If you don’t have an Indeed account, you can create one or just start a job search without an account. With an Indeed account, you can manage your job search more effectively in the following ways:

  • Save job details
  • Save searches
  • Communicate with employers
  • Modify your email subscriptions
  • Create job alerts by email

If you already have an Indeed account, just log in and search.

2. Find jobs

On the mobile app’s home page, under the “Find a Job” search box, you will see an organized list of jobs called “Job Feeds”. The job feed creates a personalized list of new jobs based on your job search activity. Edit your searches to update the vacancies in your feed.

You can also search for jobs by clicking on the “Find a job” search box. Look for companies, job titles, or keywords in the What box, and city, state, zip code, or “remote” in the Where box. If you are not sure what job title you want to search for, you can also simply search for keywords like “full time”, “part time” or industries like “retail”.

You can also leave the Where box blank if you just prefer to see all jobs with your search term, or see remote jobs or other jobs where location is not important. The Indeed app can also automatically find your location via GPS if you allow the app to access your location, by showing job postings in your area.

Once you’ve clicked on “Find a Job” with your search terms, here are a few things to note about the search results page:

Sorting and filtering options: At the top of the results page, below the search bar, you’ll also find options to filter results by date posted, salary, skills, etc. If you swipe left on this bar, it will reveal more filtering options. Using these filters will narrow your search to those that best meet your needs.

Search results: Below the sorting and filtering bar you will find the total number of search results. Then you will find the actual job postings resulting from your search. On the job vacancies you will find the following details:

  • Profession
  • Company name (with rating, if available)
  • Site

You can also see the following notes:

  • Many candidates: This means that several other job seekers have already applied.

  • Recruitment of several candidates: This means that employers hire more than one person for the job.

  • Urgent recruitment: This means that employers are looking to hire quickly.

  • Responsive employer: This means that the employer generally responds quickly to applications and messages. You can send messages to employers with an Indeed account.

  • Apply with your Indeed CV from your phone: This means that the publication can be easily applied with a mobile-friendly app. Jobs without this designation can also be applied on your phone, but they may not be optimized for mobile.

  • Sponsored: This means that the job offer has been paid for by the employer.

  • Salary: Some employers provide a salary with their job offer.

  • Number of days the job offer was posted: If it was published recently, you can also see “Be an early candidate. “

  • Save working option: You might see a small heart icon in the upper right corner of every job posting. Clicking allows you to save jobs that you may want to review or apply for later. To access your saved jobs, you can create an Indeed account.

  • Registration for the job alert: You may also see a button at the bottom of the screen that says something like “Get notifications about new jobs.” Clicking on it will give you the option to sign up for Job Alerts, which send new jobs that match your search terms straight to your inbox.

3. Apply for jobs

When you find a job that interests you, you have the option of saving or applying for that job. To save job postings so you can come back to them later, you can create an Indeed CV. To apply for vacancies from your mobile device, you have two options depending on the job posting:

Apply from your phone on the company’s website. If the job posting does not say “Apply from your phone” it means you need to apply on the company website. Their app may not be optimized for mobile, so in some cases it may be best to wait until you are in front of a computer. You can apply by clicking “Apply now.”

Apply from your phone with Indeed Apply. If the job posting says “Apply from your phone” this means that you can submit a mobile app in the Indeed app. If you are logged in it will say “Apply with your Indeed CV. “

If you have a resume saved to your account, you can quickly apply by submitting that resume. If your CV is missing some of the requirements listed in the job description, the application may prompt you to edit your CV or create a new CV.

4. Use the resources in the drop-down menu

Once you have selected a start option, you will be taken to the home page. This page will feature a simple search feature where you can find jobs by location, job title, keywords, and company name. You will also find a drop-down menu in the upper right corner of your screen with the following resources:

  • Find Jobs: Search for available jobs now by title, company or keyword.

  • Company Reviews: Find companies by exploring employee reviews, Q&A, salaries, benefits, job openings, and more.

  • Salaries: Find average salaries by company or function and get a free salary estimate based on your role, location and experience.

  • Profile: Create or upload your CV so employers can find and contact you. This feature only appears when you are signed in with an Indeed account.

  • My Jobs: Use this resource to access jobs you’ve saved or applied for. This feature only appears when you are signed in with an Indeed account.

  • My Reviews: Save reviews you have left for other businesses. This feature only appears when you are signed in with an Indeed account.

  • My Subscriptions: View your Indeed email subscriptions, including job alerts with options to edit or change their frequency. This feature only appears when you are signed in with an Indeed account.

  • Help Center: Indeed support to help you get the most out of your job search.

Tips for using the Indeed app

Here are a few more ways to get the most out of your mobile job search experience:

  • Use the “My jobs” function. With an account, you can organize your job search through the “My Jobs” feature that tracks your job offers – saved, applied, interviewed, offered, hired, visited and archived.

  • Use advanced research techniques. You can search for specific companies or job titles by adding “company:” or “title:” to your search.

  • Download the Indeed plugins. To receive alerts from your Internet browser, and if you use Chrome, you can install the Indeed extension for Chrome. This extension is free and sends updates on new jobs and employer posts.

  • Filter by date of publication. It helps to eliminate jobs that you have seen before. Jobs you haven’t clicked on yet will be colored with a bold typeface. Jobs you clicked will appear fat-free with only black, white, and gray coloring.
