Top 10 apps for MBA recruiters



Are you a MBA recruiter with an Apple iDevice?  If you are, then you are holding a powerful recruiting tool in your hand.  Whether you are jotting down notes about candidates, looking for lodging and dining when you travel, giving a presentation on-campus, or just unwinding after a long day of work, here are 10 mobile apps for every MBA recruiter:

10. Global Focus - And finally, if you're looking for a better way to recruit on the campus of the world's top b-schools, try our Global Focus mobile app. The Global Focus mobile app lets you minimize the paper chase by putting the world’s best talent at your fingertips. Access the resumes and profiles of candidates at our partner schools and follow-up with potential hires directly from the app. 

9. Flight Control - At the end of a long day of trying to land the perfect candidate, you need to unwind and have a little fun.  Flight Control is that perfect diversion.  Use your finger to guide planes to the runway for a smooth landing -- but make sure two planes don’t have intersecting flight paths! 

8. Keynote - Have to give a presentation about your company to career services on the fly?  Keynote is the ideal presentation companion.  It allows for full customization of your presentation and some eye-catching templates to hold their attention.  It's also a remote to control your Mac presentations while on stage.

7. Google Maps - From satellite images from space to ground-level street views, Google Maps has the world mapped out.  This app is the perfect tool for finding your way around campus or in any city.  It also provides spoken driving directions, color-coded real-time traffic conditions, and vector-based maps (smooth at any size).  Google Maps will help you get where you are going, again and again.

Top 10 apps for MBA students & alumni



Congratulations, you're an MBA!  Whether you've already graduated or still in school, it’s good to be equipped with as many career service tools as possible to help you land your dream job.  One of the best tools for the job is your iPhone or iPad.  These ten iOS apps help both candidates and alumni in their quest for vocational fulfillment.

10. MBA Focus - If you're a MBA at one of our partner schools, download the MBA Focus mobile app to access all your career services on-the-go. Just sign in to your b-school's career management center on your computer to authorize your mobile device. It's that easy!

9. Letterpress - If you’re a student or alumni of a top graduate business school, chances are you're quite the wordsmith. But coming up with the right "words" can often be a chore. Letterpress makes words fun again.  Play against yourself or with friends in a game where you find words, steal tiles, and color the board to improve or prove your wordsmithing skills to the world.

8. TextGrabber - Ever need to scan a printed document on-the-go? This app allows you to take a picture of a body of text and then it reproduces the photographed text as an editable text note on your device.  It also provides a powerful translating tool for interviews with overseas employers.

7. SimpleNote - Are you tired of writing important notes on pieces of paper that seemingly often get misplaced?  With SimpleNote you can write notes in your web browser on your desktop computer and they will sync with your mobile device, and vice versa.  You can also categorize notes by different headings to help you keep your thoughts, and your life, a bit more organized.

I am the “Admin” for the Recruiters On LinkedIn group. You have recently joined and this is a "welcome" to the group and "here is how it works".

Over the past year I have been experimenting how best to facilitate members being able to connect with each other. Some want to connect with everyone and some are looking for a few meaningful connections.

1-2 times per week I send a group introduction message with 10-15 new members and reintroducing others.

What this means for you is simple, do you wish to be introduced to the group?

You have 4 options from which to choose:

(A) “Open Networker” with name, email address, and LinkedIn URL as you want to connect with anyone and everyone.

(B) “General Introduction” with name and LinkedIn URL as you are specific about who you want to connect with.

(C) “Lurker” no announcement will be made as you want to be on the sidelines connecting with people as you wish.

(D) “Super Open Networker” which is (A) plus having your contact information on the group page.

A caution on the “Open Networker”, you may be inundated with invitations to connect. For some this is exactly what they are hoping for and others this could be a pain.

I do ask, if you receive invitations from members you do not want to connect with that you “Archive” the message versus “I don’t know” so the sender is not penalized by LinkedIn although how you handle this is up to you.

Again your options are (A), (B), (C), (D).

Please include your LinkedIn URL and email address you prefer to receive invitations and send to paul@mnheadhunter.com

Thank you for your time.
