THE GOOD

One of the largest job pools of any job search site:

SimplyHired aggregates jobs from around the web on other search sites, company websites, and social media. This strategy generates an expansive selection of jobs that's constantly updated and fresh. You're sure to see new job opportunities every time you visit the site, and they even tell you how many jobs have been added since you last logged in. If you're looking for a way to explore as many options as possible, SimplyHired definitely makes you feel like you're not missing out on any important opportunities.

Quick apply feature for mobile apps:

A killer feature that rolled out in 2012 is the Simply Apply feature for one-click job application on mobile devices, which is a smart addition since over 70% of job seekers search for jobs on mobile devices. The Simply Apply feature uses your resume and account information to prepopulate fields within an application on the mobile app, saving you quite a bit of time. Employers do need to enact this feature for their listings, but over 10,000 employers are participating thus far.

Seamless mobile apps:

SimplyHired's apps are available for iOS and Android devices. These apps let you search and save jobs and searches for later. Your searches and saved jobs then show up when you log in to your account on a laptop or desktop computer. This seamless integration enables an efficient search process from anywhere.

Flexible search options:

The beauty of SimplyHired's search capability is that it starts simple, then lets you make it as detailed as you want. You are in complete control of the filter options. Date, relevance to keywords, company, education, and experience are just some of your options to generate a very targeted job search with the most relevant listings.

THE BAD

Short on career resources:

The one drawback to SimplyHired is a lack of value-added information on career advancements. If you're in a career transition, or looking for advice on furthering your career opportunities, SimplyHired is not for you. You can get robust career resources, plus access to robust mobile apps and great search functions, with other complete career-oriented sites like Monster.com or CareerBuilder.
