How to optimize your job search and organization with these 2 applications


I wanted to share with you two applications which I tested lately and which I am now a big fan of:


You are surfing on the web from either your laptop or mobile and you find interesting information on a site or blog which interests you. However, at that moment, you do not have the time to read it attentively!  No worries, as with Pocket, you can save it directly to the app and view it later, either online or offline. There is a free service which is easy to use and with a clear interface.


Another great time saver is this RSS reader app. It is also user friendly, with a free service offer (which is enough to get started), where you can register the websites and blogs which interest you and then save and classify them in the application. Each time you log into Feedly, you will get a list of all the new publications from the sites which you followed. Note: rather than having too much information arriving in your feed, it is good to take the time beforehand to choose which sources you wish to add.

Both these applications can be used in your job search as a means of sourcing, organizing, and keeping up to date with companies and trends in your domain or of interest to you.

Reader Recommendations

"I enjoy reading your blog as it gives very useful information to people like me – working on restarting his/her professional life after a period of expatriation. Your useful tips help to deal with this situation in a stress-free mode and help to methodically face few challenges. I highly recommend Brid’s articles to anyone who knows they have to do something to find a new job, but they don’t know how to do it”.

"During a period of professional reorientation where I needed financing, I used the advice of Brid to write my Skills-Based CV. Thanks to her advice, my Skills-Based CV convinced the financing organization. I highly recommend her articles".

"As an expat myself coming to the end of my current contract and planning to return home to Ireland, I found the article "La Perle Rare", particularly helpful. I will soon be searching for job opportunities. Undoubtedly, I do have to distinguish myself from the crowd. Following the suggestions and advice given by Brid, with self-reflection I discovered that I have an abundance of highly developed soft skills. These are skills I had taken for granted for so long never thinking they would highlight my uniqueness to a potential employer. In the past, my focus was on my qualifications and work experience. Although this focus is important, there is room for self-promotion too. Now, I shall forge ahead with a renewed sense of myself and the confidence to promote my other strengths in interviews. Thank you, Brid. I strongly recommend Brid’s blog to expats who find themselves seeking new job opportunities “. Fiona

"Expatrié lors d’une mission de ma conjointe, j’ai rencontré Brid qui m’a beaucoup aidé et guidé afin de développer mes activités de coach running / renforcement musculaire et de sightrunning, en langue anglaise, en particulier sur mes supports de communication.

Je recommande vivement Brid pour son enthousiasme, son dynamisme et son professionnalisme". Frédéric

"Your content is very inspiring. It helped me a lot. Thank you." Emma
