got scammed by job ads & now I'm paranoid and hardly trust any job offers. I need app suggestion that can filter out places and fields so it is easier for me to attend the interview.

You can try apply job through jobstreet since it's a legit app. All job ads on their site are also legitimate job opportunity & job search is more straightforward

The app makes thing more easier to apply job but sometimes you will see a black screen for few seconds and then app will crash with or without an error message. They need to fix this problem.

I think there might be few situations that may cause the load issue in mobile apps. wifi or mobile data connection not working properly or too many users using the app at same time. Need to try after few minutes.

It may be a temporary issue with your connection if got error. It is super easy to use and response is faster from recruiters when using app since can get notify through phone

True tho. I can filter out agencies and companies directly from there without having to research one by one. Save lot of time if compare to other job platform

I am satisfied with their app even though sometimes got issue. The number of emails that they send to us can be reduced by sending only the relevant jobs as per our profile.

Most of the times, it might be a temporary loading issue. I think the email that you are referring to can be reduced by filter out the job vacancy but LiNA job alerts is quite helpful as for me

It is really easy to set up a job search filter to narrow down which field, experience, and expected salary to find the job that suits me. Plus, the app is free to use without hidden charges

I always updated profile and resume in order to highlight my profile to get noticed by potential employers. The app can also filter the job criteria that are matching mine by expertise and experience.

If you want to be noticed more by employer, can get premium account. The profile will be label as "priority application" and tendency for employer to view our profile will be higher. Not sure if can directly pay through app

Price can be competitive when compared to market standards otherwise everything is good. I certainly feel that the security system of the app is not up to the mark when i go through the login system.

It's easy to apply for job vacancies here but some companies are using this platform to fish the users or applicants to visit their website. That's very frustrating. All job vacancies should be applied via the app but some just can't be applied through it.

Thats normal since certain company website linked to jobstreet. They prefer candidate to upload resume and certificate to gather more information before hiring process

App is still useful and a reliable source of legit job app as always. But current UI version is quite fuzzy and it seemed like a downgrade from its older version that was a lot better and the filter doesn't retain selected criteria.
