Version 1.8 Released

Ok, version 1.8 has been live for a while now, so sorry for the late post. I am going to blame (or, well, thank) my firm for making me a junior partner and adding a whole mess of new responsibilities on my tardiness…

Anyway, a while back (October 29, 2015), I released version 1.8, which I am really excited about. Basically, the new version is now optimized for and looks beautiful on all iPhone screen sizes. I know the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have been out for well over a year already, but better late than never, and I think the new Job Sleuth looks amazing! Better still, the groundwork I laid for this update will make future updates much easier to implement.

Other improvements in this update, if less exciting, should definitely make the user experience better, and include: Landscape orientation support(!); more visual cues in the detail view to make understanding/digesting the data more intuitive and fast.

So what does the update look like?

Version 1.7 Released

As of Version 1.7 Job Sleuth now includes the ability to perform an in-depth, powerful, lightning-fast, and Social Security compliant job transferability search! Use any combination of a job’s Work Field(s), MPSMS Code(s), SVP, Occupational Group, GOE code, and RFC to find transferable jobs lightning fast.

This is a feature usually found in desktop applications that cost many times more than Job Sleuth, but update your app and you get this powerful new feature absolutely free. Making sure the disability transferability search works correctly, efficiently, and in the user-friendly way you have come to expect from Job Sleuth, took a considerable amount of time and effort and I hope you enjoy the result!

Here is how the search looks, the results number is updated live so you always know how many results your current search will find:

Once your search is complete, you can print or email the results, similar to a title or advanced search. Also, your search restrictors are listed in the header for easy reference:

Version 1.6 Released

Version 1.6 is a MAJOR update!

With the new update, Job Sleuth will include the data from the MPSMS, Work Fields, Aptitudes, and Temperaments! Adding this new data to the already present data from the Dictionary of Occupational Titles and Selected Characteristics of Occupations practically doubles the amount of information available for each job! To better manage this vastly increased amount of data, the Detail View has been reorganized around a tab bar.

I think you will love this update. Please leave a review if you do! There are many more exciting updates to come! Below are some pictures of what the new version looks like:

Version 1.4 Released

HUGE NEW FEATURE: Advanced Search!

Job Sleuth now has Advanced Search capability to help you scour the Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT) and Selected Characteristics of Occupations (SCO) for the job(s) that match the exact criteria or combination of criteria you choose. This is an incredible enhancement to Job Sleuth’s (already astounding) usefulness.

Advanced Search is perfect for all Social Security or vocational practitioners:

– Social Security attorneys and representatives can prepare their cases by checking their client’s disabilities against potentially compatible jobs to help guide medical development, treating physician questionnaires, and hearing preparation.

– Vocational experts can easily answer any “step four and five” questions by simply plugging in the hypothetical restrictions.

– Vocational rehabilitation specialists can find jobs their clients are suited for based on the limitations each individual presents with.

Below are some pictures of the advanced search in action:

Version 1.3 Released

1.3: New Functionality!

– Browse by GOE is now accessible from any job’s detail view. This function is perfect for transferability analysis as it allows you to immediately jump to jobs with the same GOE code, which means they are based on similar interests and have the same requirements for aptitudes and entry level preparation.

– Search results now display their industry information in the list view. This makes finding the exact job you are looking for much easier and eliminates apparent duplicates in the result list.

Click on any of the fields to go directly to other jobs that match the same GOE section:
