Shine is the job search tool from the folks behind the Hindustan Times. The app’s stand out feature is that it lets you use your personal social networking connections to expand your search for jobs. It’s also one of the best looking job apps that we’ve come across.

Just like Quikr, OLX also hosts a lot of job classifieds. When compared to the job hunt centric apps in this list, OLX may look a little disorganized but it can still be mighty useful for anyone hunting for jobs.
Sure, Quikr may be used more selling and buying stuff but it also has a decent listing of job classifieds. Provided you have the patience to browse through the listings, Quikr may actually help you locate the perfect job.
Now, if you’re just out of school or want to spend your long summer break productively, then you can score a good internship with the help of the Letsintern app. The app lets you apply for part-time, full time or online internships and also keeps you updated on any new openings based on your requirements.
LinkedIn Job Search
You can’t really have a story on job search without mentioning LinkedIn, perhaps the most effective professional networking tool today. This app lets you quickly search for jobs based on title, location or keywords and also recommends you jobs based on your LinkedIn profile. If you’re serious about finding a job and maintaining a professional profile, then owning a LinkedIn profile is a must.
Don’t want to apply for a full-time job? Happy to work on limited duration projects as a freelancer? Then the Freelancer app is for you. The app is different from other job search engines because it lets you bid on projects that interest you. The only issue is that you can’t search for projects based on location but since most of the projects can be done over the Internet, it’s not too big an issue.
