If you're serious about finding a job, it can be a full-time activity. So it's important you make the most of the tools, tips and features available. That's why we have a great totaljobs.com mobile site.
Provided you've uploaded your CV you can search and apply for jobs away from your PC - anytime, anywhere. And we've got a few more tips to getting the most out of your totaljobs mobile site...
1. Search for jobs wherever, whenever
The biggest benefit to accessing www.totaljobs.com on your mobile phone is the total freedom it gives you; you no longer have to wait until you're alone at your desktop PC to scan new relevant jobs. You can register for totaljobs.com from your mobile, browse and search for new jobs while you're on the move and, if you're picking up emails on your mobile, you can click through from our jobs by email recommendations to see the details of any new matching jobs.
2. Apply for a job on your phone
Get in there quickly, before the employer is deluged by piles of CVs. Using the totaljobs mobile site will help keep you on top of your job hunt and you can apply instantly from your phone if you’ve already registered your details with us and uploaded your CV onto totaljobs via your computer.
3. Email jobs of interest to yourself
Want to spend a bit more time on your application? Maybe it’s a job that’s a bit different and you need to check your CV before applying? Then you can email it to yourself for later. This is a great way of staying in control, and when you sit down to properly go through applications you’ll have them all there, ready and waiting in your inbox.
You can also apply your own jobs by email settings from your mobile so we can email you jobs that fit exactly what you're after, taking the hassle out of the job hunt.
4. Help a mate... And earn Brownie points!
Your best mate is also looking for a job - and two brains are better than one, right? Now is the time to earn some serious Brownie points. There may even be a beer/flowers/dinner in it for you. If you’re out and about and looking to kill some time anyway, and you find a job that you think would be perfect for them, email it over!
5. Use your lunch hour
Here at totaljobs.com, we're all about making the most of your current job until you can get a new one, so we'd never encourage you to spend your working day sneakily searching for jobs. Waiting until you get home at night to quickly scan for new jobs in your chosen area isn't ideal, though, so why not use your lunch hour to step out of the office and conduct a quick search on our mobile site?
As we've mentioned before, you can even apply for jobs using your mobile - so you can return to your desk for an afternoon's work safe in the knowledge that your job search is still very much on track.
The digital age is making it ever easier to live your life, so why should this not include your job hunt? Now is the time to take control.
