Glassdoor Does Push Notifications, relevant jobs in the palm of your hand

Glassdoor, a popular online community that brings companies and job hunters together uniquely, has just added a 'Job Feed' to its mobile app. This feed will allow users to receive job listings based on their own customized key words at any time of day.

They have also added a 'Job Scope' button as a part of the update. The Job Scope button is one-click access to company information, such as reviews by actual employees or salaries. This type of transparent information is how Glassdoor is set apart and also why the community is aptly named.

This could make the job hunt significantly less tedious. Just another creative way Glassdoor is trying to make it more painless.
