FullContact

FullContact: Job seekers, especially new graduates, need to begin building a personal and professional network with contact information that goes beyond what's available from online social networks. FullContact stores all of your contacts safely in a cloud-based system that automatically and accurately updates them with publicly available social profile information and photos, easily manages de-duplication and then syncs contacts back to the places you need them — so you always have a complete view of your connections.

FullContact gives job seekers the power to create contact groups and tags, and maintain personal ownership of meaningful connections so contact information won't be left behind if key contacts someday disconnect from a social network.

Your super-network travels anywhere with FullContact. It is available on desktops via the web-based platform, Gmail (compatible with multiple Google accounts) as a plugin, and iOS (iPhone and iPad).

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.
