    Hey Doranio,

    This is a very handy list. I never realised how handy it would have been to have some of these apps (& my iphone) when i had those nerve racking interviews in the past.

  10. New iPhone app for medical sales job seekers from the industry’s leading job site:

  11. I tend to shy away from apps or websites that offer job interview advice. The advice is typically outdated and cliche. Still, I was killing time waiting for an interview recently and I grabbed Interview Buddy for a laugh. It actually really helped me relax and prepare for the interview. I did end up getting the job, and while I can’t say for sure it was because of the app, it definitely did not hurt!

    It’s clean, quick, and an effective tool for scanning jobs and posting your resume to employers.
