Looking for a new job used to involve buying a newspaper, cold-calling businesses, or simply taking a walk downtown to seek “now hiring” signs, but not anymore–finding a job is all about knowing the right digital tools. There are a lot of apps for job hunters, but not all are created equal. These job search apps stand out as some of the best and most unique tools to help you find the new position you’re looking for.


Considering a change of scenery for the new year? These 10 job-hunting, gig-landing, and networking apps are for you.First up is Good&Co, which uses personality quizzes to help you find the right job match. If you’ve ever used dating app OKCupid, which is famous for its quizzes, Good&Co will feel familiar. Linking your Good&Co profile with LinkedIn will pair you with companies that have a corporate culture that matches your personality, at least according to their metrics.Good&Co is available for iOS and Android.

Good&Co “quizzifies” searching for a job, kind of like how OkCupid does the same for dating. You can take personality tests to get matched with corporate cultures at different companies, get an idea of what career is right for you, learn more about your work style, and then use that info to find a job that’s (hopefully) a good fit.
