2017 is upon us. The only thing moving faster than time is technology and finding a job is no different. Here’s how you can use new tech to help you find a new job.
Before internet job boards arrived, newspapers and community boards were once the norm when looking for a job. But candidates now spend more time on mobile job search apps than internet job boards, as the demand for constant connectivity increases. Thanks to Zoek, the job search technology in mobile job search apps has now evolved too. Here’s how.
Synonym Based Algorithm
Maths teacher. Or Mathematics teacher? If a job post didn’t have the exact description you entered in the search, you’d miss a lot of relevant new jobs based on traditional ‘word search’ technology. With our synonym based algorithms we automatically match you with the alternative descriptions for that job title, so you won’t miss the one you need to see.
Amazon-like technology knows and predicts what results you want to see, presenting only the best matched jobs and less irrelevant drivel. The machine learning knows that if you searched for ‘driving instructor’ you don’t want to see new jobs to ‘drive business growth’, require ‘ability to drive’ or to ‘drive pests away’.
Push Mobile Notifications
Once you have saved your search, newly posted jobs that perfectly match your criteria will be instantly sent by a push notification to your mobile. Find out in real time when your dream new job lands so you can apply first and beat the pack.
Modern semantic search tool
We know what you’re trying to spell, so we automatically adjust mistyped words for you. Don’t miss out on commonly miss-spelt terms, we automatically do this for you.
CV and Documents
Within the app, you can store documents in addition to your CV. Driving licence, qualifications or right-to -work documents can be easily stored for quick checks and processing with potential new employers. Dig them out once, store them in Zoek, and then use them when you need to. Easy.
Location, location, location. At the click of a button you can let GPS track where you are. This will then use your location for your desired job search, or select wherever you want to work. Then select the range you are willing to travel, whether it’s one mile or 50, some other basic details, and let Zoek do the rest.
Mobile App First
Zoek is a mobile job search app first, and a website second. Where others have dragged and dropped their website to fit mobile, we have built Zoek for the best mobile experience possible. From entering your details easily, to intuitive swiping to select your favourite jobs, Zoek was built for mobile job search.
