Have you ever felt frustrated by trying to reach customer service on a website or phone call, only to have your attention shifted to a chatbot or automated system? Why would you want to use an app for your job searching needs when you can talk to a person instead? We are firmly in the digital age, but there’s something really helpful and supportive about working with an actual person Consider the pros and cons of job apps compared to the benefits of working with a staffing firm, like LaborMAX, during your job search.

Job apps are One-way Conversations

Any questions you might have about a job posting you find online will be submitted to a chatbot, which has certain scripted answers to utilize when trying to answer your inquiry. If you have a specific question, odds are you won’t be satisfied with the results your question returns.

Applying on Apps can be Like Drinking From a Fire Hose

Unless you have a detailed, dedicated system for tracking all your applications, the ease with which people can apply for dozens of ads in a single afternoon means you might forget what the job was if you get called for an interview.

If You’re Applying, so are Other People

How can you possibly stand out from a crowd, especially if a job sounds too good to be true? You’ve become the proverbial needle in a haystack and no one’s using a magnet to find you.
