At this point, we are all pretty familiar with the popular job-hunting web site, Monster.com. This excellent web site is a great way to get your resume out to a lot of desks without doing a lot of legwork. If you’re an iOS user (and, since you’re here, let’s go with: You are) this is a great app to have on the go.

Monster.com, for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad (iOS 3.0 or later), is the gateway to all of your resumes and job searches while on the go. You can keep track of everything Monster.com on your phone – even apply for new positions.

The interface is very easy to use. Your main page is set up very much like your springboard. All the pages of the app are accessible and easy to see. The large icons feel very web 2.0 – all colored to the tune of Monster.com. I felt very comfortable and familiar with the app, even on my first use. The app doesn’t have a whole lot of layers to it, which makes you feel as though you can use it without having to deal with hassles.

The app does require your Monster.com log-in information, which, of course, allows it to sync with your persona on the web. It keeps all of your recent searches readily available, along with all of your resumes. The only thing I wish it didn’t do was jump to the web to give you some special offers from Monster. I found myself on some college’s web site, and almost accidentally signed up for classes because Monster filled out part of the form using the information I gave it. Hmm. Oh well!

If you use Monster.com, you’ll want this app. It’s free, and makes your Monster.com accessible from anywhere. I liked it, and I don’t even use Monster.com – not yet, anyway.
