Turning Your Phone into a Job Search Tool

My phone sometimes feels like an extra limb: I don’t go anywhere without it. In fact, if I had to choose between my left hand and my phone, I might sacrifice my hand to hold onto my phone (with my right hand of course).

We recently had a huge phone announcement: the first smartphone with Intel inside, the XOLO X900, was announced in India and it is now available to purchase! (Another reason to visit India? I think so ;-) ). And we’re excited to announce another one today: the Jobs at Intel Mobile App is available to download on your Android* device and iPhone* from Google Play and iTunes.

Don’t rub your eyes—you read that right: we’ve created an app for your phone that will keep you in the loop about careers at Intel and new job opportunities! There’s been an explosion of smartphone usage around the world (according to a MobiThinking study, there are 1.2 billion mobile web users worldwide and mobile searches have quadrupled in the last year!), so we knew we wanted to make the search easier for you. Especially as we, as a company, develop technologies for smart phone and tablets, it makes sense to connect with our future talent with these technologies.

So why would you download the app? Here’s why:

  • Job Alerts: Do you know when new job matches open up? With the app, you can get alerts! The app includes a daily feed of all of our job postings. You can search on job categories such as job title, keywords or location to narrow down the list. Your searches can be saved in search history or added to a list of favourites and you’ll receive alerts based on recent and saved searches. This is a notification you won’t want to miss!
  • Apply: Whether it’s through a job alert or through a search, once you’ve found a job opening that matches, you’ll want to apply! Openings can be emailed so you can complete the application or you can share it with a friend.
  • Connect with Us: Finding a job is more than finding an opening that matches your interests and skills, it’s about finding a culture where you not only fit in, but can grow and thrive. Watch our Life at Intel videos, read our Jobs at Intel blog posts and follow our updates from Twitter and Facebook, all within the application.

Exciting stuff eh? This is just one of the ways we want to get you connected to the opportunities that lie ahead at Intel. Intel is now available IN and ON your mobile device! So, what are you waiting for? Download the app and let us know what you think!

    This is a really good idea/concept Intel, since we have so many graduates hunting for jobs.

    Interesting and exciting. I’ll download for sure.
    Just curious, is it possible to start at intel as a trainee or so as I don’t have any experience nor studies and I don’t know what to study either.

      Yes, Intel does hire ‘entry level’ people from time to time. If you aren’t a new grad, you would have to focus on what we deem ‘experienced’ openings, but there are some that will open that don’t require a lot of prior work experience in the area. It doesn’t happen a whole lot though, because many of our hiring needs are highly specialized. Keep an eye on our job postings, you may come across something that you feel you could spin up on relatively quickly. Be sure to apply to all you have interest in as well. Good luck!
