Apps Launched for Job Seeking Students, Job Recruiters

A technology company has launched two new mobile apps — one for soon-to-be college graduates looking for jobs and another for companies interested in recruiting them.

Symplicity, a technology company that focuses on education and government, has introduced Careers by Symplicity, a job-searching tool for students, and OneStop On Campus, a tool for job recruiters.

According to the company, Careers by Symplicity allows student job hunters to place all their resources and conduct all of their job searches by way of their mobile app. Among the features the app includes are:

  • The ability to constantly update their profile and availability for interviews in real time;
  • A data base of available jobs that allows job seekers to search through those they are most qualified for and then apply for them;
  • Information on job fairs in their area; and
  • An intuitive calendar that works as a dashboard so that students can manage interviews, career fairs and counseling appointments.

"As the modern job market evolves and students are required to keep pace with changing demand, being able to pinpoint and match graduate skills to job opportunities is of critical importance," said Symplicity CEO Bill Gerety.

The OneStop On Campus app for job recruiters features:

  • QR code integration so they can easily scan student resumes;
  • A rating system so they can quickly evaluate job candidates that they meet;
  • A way to share information on candidates with members of their own staffs;
  • A database of students who may have attended job fairs; and
  • Easily retrievable information about past, current and future job recruiting events.

Careers by Symplicity can be downloaded at no charge and subscriptions are available for OneStop On Campus.
