Jobsite App Goes Live on Windows Phone 7

Windows Phone 7 handset users will be able to search for jobs quickly and easily wherever they are with the Jobsite Jobs app, which is available for free download from today.

The app enables users to search for jobs from all sectors by job title, location, job type (e.g. permanent/contract) and date added to the site. Results can be sorted by relevance, salary or date. Jobs of interest can be saved to a shortlist to apply later, or the user can apply for the job from the phone if their CV is stored on Jobsite. Jobs can also be shared to help family or friends who are looking for a new opportunity.

The app also features content from Jobsite’s BeMyInterviewer  tool, which helps candidates prepare for interviews with interactive video content from businessmen and organisations including Duncan Bannatyne, Virgin Atlantic and Sky.

“We’re extremely proud to have been chosen as one of only a few select brands to produce apps for the Windows Phone 7 launch,” says managing director, Keith Potts. “Featuring alongside great names like Tesco, BBC and National Rail, it’s great that Microsoft recognise both the important role that job-hunting plays in people’s lives and the changing ways that people are choosing to search for jobs.

Potts adds that when comparing the traffic to Jobsite via mobile and desktop, the company sees a clear trend for people to use their phones on the commute to and from work, and also later at night when perhaps people are less inclined to fire up a computer.
