What if you could find jobs before they're ever posted online? Well now you can with the Hidden Jobs App (http://hiddenjobsapp.com). The newest version, released last week, features a push alert system as well as a handy 'Google their jobs' button that quickly connects you to all of the important job links for that company.
Developed by CareerCloud.com, a new social recruiting startup, the app has already tracked more than 2.5 million new jobs since it launched in the spring of 2011. It aggregates online articles and news items about companies that will be adding jobs, either immediately or in the near future. Then it catalogs them by grabbing the number of jobs mentioned and the state they'll be created in. Users can read all the articles without leaving the app.
"Don't job hunt, company hunt," says Chris Russell, CEO of CareerCloud. "This app enables you to find those companies that just announced new hiring plans so you can get your foot in the door."
New features include:
-- Push Alerts: sign up for up to five (5) states and get notified as soon
as new job leads are added
-- Google button: a handy button that will automatically search Google for
jobs at that company
-- Share: email any article to yourself or a friend
Here's a sample list of articles you can find and read with Hidden Jobs App:
-- Nissan North America to Add 800 Jobs in Tennessee
-- Smitty's Supply Expanding in Louisiana, Adding 150 New Jobs
-- Adobe Expects to Hire 200 in Utah by Year's End
The app is available for iOS only and supports all devices and screen sizes for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Android users can use the mobile friendly website for a similar experience at http://hiddenjobsapp.com.
