What can you use the app for?

Seek4Career is a job search that covers the United States. Users can search for listings by skill, job title or company and include a location filter. The site also offers convenient location-based links so the user can jump directly to specific regions. Clicking each link takes the user to additional links for specific cities within the chosen state to further narrow the user’s search results. An embedded Google Map includes bold orange markers that visually display job listings by location. A line of tags near the bottom of the page reveals current trending jobs by name, type or position. Each job appears with a headline, short blurb and clickable link that takes the user to the website the opening was originally posted on.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Seek4Career includes an enormous number of job listings. The site’s homepage counter indicates that more than 5,229,000 jobs have been published in the United States. So far the application has earned complements for the volume of its listings. It was featured on Killer Startups who claimed that expectations weren’t high upon first glance. The application actually does a good job filtering results so the user is presented openings that actually match their skills and requirements.

What are the differences to other apps?

Seek4Career looks and functions much like other online job boards. The interface isn’t inspiring and the search results are rather bare bones. The type of results that are produced is what makes the application appealing. Users find that the search function generally provides a list of openings that they would actually be interested in applying for.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Seek4Career doesn’t look like much at first. New users will see practical tools but nothing cutting edge or exciting to catch the eye. A solid white background presents a few blue elements in the form of buttons and logo accents. The layout is manageable so the user doesn’t have to spend any time to figure out how to search. This is a relatively simple function so it would be difficult to complicate it with interface features.

How does the registration process work?

Seek4Career does not require an account to access all current features. Any visitor can begin searching as soon as they arrive on the homepage. This is a good thing because the site doesn’t currently offer anything that would justify asking for the user’s personal information. The site will save recent searches for quick reference but the user must supply initial location details.

What does it cost to use the application?

Seek4Career welcomes all job hunters for free. There is no fee for searching. Users receive unlimited access to all current features. This is the ideal price for the service provided. The site is practical and functional, but doesn’t offer anything unique or worth of a subscription fee. Seek4Career would have to really pad out its features list before requesting payment from users.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Seek4Career is a helpful tool for anyone who wants to look for employment in the United States. The application is very easy to use and free. The listings are relatively extensive, however the application is better suited for use as a supplemental job seeking tool. Users can search anytime and access many job listings in a wide range of industries.
