Job Board Apps
Having job board apps on your phone is a great way to be on the job search away from your computer. Some of the most common are Simply Hired, Indeed, Monster, CareerBuilder, Linkedin, and Glassdoor. You can browse and easily apply to jobs straight from your phone or save them to your account to apply to later on your desktop. In addition to job boards, sources like Linkedin are great for networking, while Glassdoor is excellent for learning more about a company of interest. Employees or formerly employed can leave reviews about the company which is helpful insight if you’re looking to apply there. This way you can get a sort of feel if the environment is for you before even going there.

Practicing will make your answers much stronger when it comes time to interview and will certainly calm your nerves!
