The Best Apps for Success After College Graduation

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 17, 2016) Asurion, the technology support and protection partner of the nation’s leading wireless carriers and retailers, is offering grads advice to help leverage their mobile devices for real-world success.


Graduates looking to graduate from “social networking college student” to “networking business professional” need to make sure they stay connected and up their app game. Asurion knows you can’t afford to be without a phone during the job search, or on the clock at a new job. Make sure you have a support and protection plan through your wireless carrier so you can quickly receive a replacement phone should yours be lost, stolen or damaged.


A few of the best apps to make a grad’s transition into the real world as smooth as possible include:


Similar to Tinder, Switch is a swiping app that matches you to jobs by filtering opportunities from your LinkedIn profile, gathering your previous experience and location.


Class Pass
This app makes it easy to find a fitness class from personal training to yoga in your area.


Mint is a personal finance tool that helps manage money in all your accounts with budget tracking and bill alerts.
Good and Co provides personality insights to further your career through fun quizzes.


Thred Up
This app makes it easy to get rid of your casual clothes and upgrade to a professional style at an affordable price.


Meet Up
Download MeetUp, an app that makes it easy to make friends with similar interests.


“Our devices have become essential for success in the classroom, and after as grads are entering the ‘real world’ and searching for jobs,” said Bettie Colombo, Asurion spokeswoman. “Being able to leverage your device to help ease that transition and land your dream job is more important than ever so you don’t miss your interview or the number of a new contact at your dream company.”
