8 digital tools to boost your job search

Find below my favourite tools for a job search. All of them are free, some are Goole Chrome extensions.

Don’t miss, the best website to find a job in Luxembourg and some tools to manage and organise your job search.

A few years ago, Linkedin was a “nice-to-have” today, it is a “must-have”. If you do not have an account today and are looking for work, this is the first tool to use. If you already have an account, do your best to make your profile as clear and relevant as possible.

Benefits: well used, Linkedin allows you to increase your visibility with companies


The leader on note taking, Evernote is incredibly helpful. The app can be installed on your computer and your smartphone. Information is saved, synchronised and constantly at your fingertips.

Benefits: save information, easy note-taking and continuous access to information


Boomerang is a Google Chrome extension. Very useful, Boomerang allows to send emails at the desired date and time. For exemple : you can write an email at 2AM, send it but ask Boomerang to only send it at 10AM.

Benefits: better timing management of your emails


Glassdoor is a huge listing of companies. Everyone share their opinion on firms, wages and others. Very useful to get an opinion on a company.

Benefits: gather information to better prepare your interviews and make the right decision. Remember to stay critical on the information.


Shapr is the Tinder of professional networking. The app offers to meet inspiring professionals. Swap a minute a day and meet people around your interests.

Benefits: Make professional meetings and multiply professional opportunities.


Password Generator is tool that allows you to create passwords according to traditional constraints (3 numbers, 7 capital letters, 5 special characters, …).

Benefits: saves you time and, above all, avoids dragging your hair on the creation of a password with constraints! (we’ve all been there …)

Did you know that reusing passwords is quite risky? Here is why!


Prerequisites: use the internet browser Chrome and Gmail. Rapportive is an extension. How does it work? When you read someone’s email, Rapportive shares additional information about the contact; Linkedin profile and other social networks (cf picture). Among other things, when you open an email you see the person’s Linkedin photo.

Benefit: facilitates interactions and connections


Hunter.io allows you to find email addresses in seconds and connect with the people who matter to your business. Be careful not to abuse sending emails to strangers anyway.

Benefits: Facilitates contact and creates opportunities. Danger: to end up in prison for not respecting GDPR.
