Here are some of the best Android apps that can assist you in your hunt for a new (and hopefully better) workplace.
LinkedIn is one of the most popular business-oriented social networks in the world, so it's pretty easy to understand why having this app on your phone could help you find a job. The application gives you access to execs and recruiters from almost every company in the world, thus offering you an easy way to see if the firm you want to work for is still hiring. Furthermore, in case you've already scored an interview, searching for the person who's about to decide if you will get hired on LinkedIn could give you some insight about him or her, so it may provide you that small advantage you needed.

This app is very fast, so if you find yourself at a job fair and see something you're interested in, you can quickly create a CV and send it directly to the employer's phone or email. The application also includes a job search tool which, although not as good as the ones previously mentioned on this list, is probably still worth trying out.
