App turns into big hit for those seeking dental jobs on

June 27, 2013 has announced that now over half of its registered users have downloaded the DentalPost mobile app. The DentalPost mobile app allows dental practices to send out alerts about job openings, and lets dental professionals use their smart phones and other mobile devices to apply for those jobs.

Job seekers can use to build and post a resume profile as well as view both permanent and temporary dental jobs in their area. The DentalPost mobile app allows job-seekers to apply for job anywhere, at anytime. The app is being utilized by over half of the 300,000+ registered users on Users of the app get job alerts sent directly to their mobile devices. The app lets job-seekers upload pictures, and they can take a personality test and fill out a skills questionnaire to make sure hiring managers know what they have to offer as prospective employees.

“The DentalPost mobile app owes a lot to the feedback we've received from our users, who wanted the ability to apply for jobs on the go,” said Tonya Lanthier, founder and CEO. “I can't thank our users enough for their willingness to tell us where we can improve. The DentalPost app is something we'd been thinking about for a while, but when our users let us know how much they wanted it we made it a priority, and it's really taken off.”

The app also lets hiring managers at dental practices view resumes on their mobile devices. This means a dental practice won't miss out on finding the right person for the job they're looking to fill. This is especially important when it comes to finding someone for temporary and fill-in jobs, which sometimes pop up on short notice.

“I graduated from Athens Technical College with an Associates Degree in Dental Hygiene,” DentalPost user Amy Williams said, “and I discovered that new grads like me are unlikely to find a permanent job right out of school. Temp and fill-in jobs are available all the time, though, and having the ability to get job alerts and submit my resume at any time, no matter where I am or what I'm doing, is absolutely crucial for me to get the kind of experience I need in order to land a permanent job. It's been a month since I graduated, and I'm now filling in at four different offices on an as-needed basis.”
