EDD launches mobile app to help job seekers

The California Employment Development Department has launched a mobile application designed to enhance the linking up of job seekers and employers.

The “CalJOBS” app, now available for smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices, was developed by Florida-based Geographic Solutions Inc. and is an extension of EDD’s online resource center.

EDD said the app gives job seekers access to jobs from nearly 16,000 websites, including federal, state and local government job boards. Searches can be done by keywords, geographical locations and specific occupations. Job applications also can be done via the app.

The app can be downloaded at no cost by searching for the term “caljobs” in the Apple iTunes or Google Play stores. Job seekers can register with CalJOBS at
