Create, preview and send a professional-looking PDF resume including specific skill sets, references and even personal photographs.
As the U.S. job market continues to show slow signs of improvement—the economy added 192,000 jobs in February and the unemployment rate dropped to 8.9 percent, according to the latest numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics—now might be the time to start thinking about your IT career and where you stand in the labor market. Thankfully, Apple's App Store offers a wide range of applications designed to give you a leg up in determining your options. iPhone and iPad apps as diverse as resume builders, job interview test runs and even applications that help you ensure your tie is perfectly knotted are among those listed here, as well as a selection of iPhone and iPad apps designed to help you find a new career in a new town. Features like GPS functionality, the ability to create PDF files, and connectivity to professional social networking sites like LinkedIn offer new opportunities to job hunt on the run—or figure out whether it's time for you to make a career change. While none of these applications can guarantee you a new position at your dream profession, they go a long way to helping you gauge—and achieve, your full IT job potential.
