You never know where you'll find your next job opportunity.

Maybe you'll attend an alumni event where you and your future colleague will connect over a shared love of college basketball. Perhaps you'll meet your future business partner at a friend's BBQ.

Or your next opportunity will be planned -- the product of months of dedication, networking, and job applications, with the goal of working for one of technology's favorite leaders, or becoming one yourself.

Perhaps you'll stumble upon your next big break with the help of your smartphone. There are mobile apps that can help you with everything from making contact with hiring managers to fine-tuning your resume.

There is no shortage of opportunities for tech professionals, but where to target your search? Professionals are most likely to seek opportunities at tech giants Google, Salesforce, and Facebook, as discovered in a recent study by LinkedIn. The social networking site recently published a list of the top US companies for attracting and retaining talent.

Once you decide where to look, you can use your smartphone to kick off your search or to close the deal. We spotlight iOS and Android apps to help job hunters discover and land new opportunities.
