LinkedIn: Perfect for the new grad or anyone looking to keep their hand on the pulse of the job market, build and nurture your professional network, stay up to date with the latest business and industry news and find your next dream job via this business-oriented social network. 

It all starts with your LinkedIn profile. Displaying much more than your professional resume, your profile shows the world who you are and what you've accomplished in your career. LinkedIn enables you to make and grow connections with others in your industry; stay up to date with your professional network; search for and connect with people, jobs, companies and groups; follow influencers to gain insights and career lessons from business thought leaders; view, save and apply for jobs you're interested in and much more.

LinkedIn can be accessed on desktops via the web-based platform and on mobile devices for iOS, Android, Windows and BlackBerry.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 70 percent of jobs are found through networking, and with the National Center for Education Statistics projecting more than 1,855,000 new graduates entering the workforce in 2015, securing a coveted job offer in this highly competitive landscape requires added resourcefulness.

To gain an edge and tap into the power of networking, college grads, as well as other job seekers, have access to a wealth of useful apps designed to ease the transition to working professional. However, with millions of apps available for download, how do you make sure you're using the best tools to get from the job search to the corner office? If leveraged and utilized properly, countless working professionals have seen a direct correlation between their network and their overall net worth.

Bart Lorang, CEO of FullContact, recommends five key networking apps for job seekers to start immediately building out their professional networks.
