Indeed is a comprehensive engine for online job searches. The app offers free access to millions of job opportunities in over 60 countries and 28 languages. Indeed Job Search allows candidates to look through different companies and job openings, create resumes (inside the app or upload their own), apply for jobs, and receive notifications about new job openings that interest them.

From search to application: the Indeed Job Search app helps you through the entire process of finding a new job.
We have tested dozens of apps over the past few years and wanted to help Indeed colleagues improve their platform. Here are a few areas that need tweaking!
