As a regular cinema goer I am always pleased when the Orange ad that "humourously" reminds us to turn
off our phones before a film, finally gives up the ghost, and is replaced by a
new one. Finally something new to watch 100 times a month. (Yes, I go to the
cinema a lot.) There is only so many times you can laugh through gritted
teeth at the idea of Orange subtitling a French movie, or an animated blue bird telling you that it
should've won an Oscar.
The latest Orange
cinema advertisement jokes about the concept of allowing ten minute
"mobile phone breaks" during movies so that people can make that all
important call. One woman exclaims with glee that she has just purchased
curtains. The advertisement is funny (for a change) mostly because it pokes fun
at modern human behaviour; we are glued to our technology at every given point;
and for good reason.
I'm writing this article on a train, all around me I can
hear people making very personal calls, the man opposite me has a
Blackberry and an iPhone and has been switching between them all
journey. I am writing this article whilst nursing my online banking syndrome-
it's a terrible disease I have which involves me checking my cash flow
situation about ten times a day. And I'm on a train without wireless. Oh the
joys of mobile internet.
Smartphones are getting smarter and we are getting
busier. I long for my commute so that I can check my emails, organise my life
and continue to work without wasting a second of my day. And my phone doesn't
just allow me to work more, but it could even help me to find a new job.
There are job seeking apps, like the All The Top Bananas
job search app, that allow you to search and apply for the latest vacancies, on
the move. Your app can notify you of any new vacancies, so that you'll never
miss that perfect job. If you are on your way to an interview, you can browse
the advice section on the bus there and make sure you are well prepared. You can save searches and minimise keystrokes
so that you only have to tap one button to search. And the best bit? You can
browse, whenever, wherever you like and you can be certain that your current
boss, or the man sitting behind you on the train, won't know what you are doing.
It is compact, discreet job seeking.
The All The Top Bananas job search app is available to
download on iPhone and Android. So why not take a look at how it
can help you today?
