Huntr for mobile, a new way to discover jobs and organize your search
Huntr was launched about a year ago. Since then, tens of thousands of job seekers have used the Huntr web app to organize and track hundreds of thousands of jobs 🙌. Throughout this time, we’ve introduced a ton of new features to make it easier to organize your job search, from letting users share their boards with friends and advisors, to a chrome extension that lets you save job posts from any site with one click.
More than ever before, users are turning to their phones during their job hunt. The problem with mobile job searching, as with the job search ecosystem in general, is that opportunities are segmented across dozens of job boards, aggregators, and career sites. This leaves job seekers with the tedious task of discovering the best sites to use for their search, and then repeating the same search for every site. The result is a bad search experience and job opportunities siloed in multiple places.
In our effort to improve the job search experience we’re introducing Huntr iOS and Android apps, a step towards a more enjoyable search experience. Besides extending all of Huntr’s web functionalities to mobile, the app lets you select your favorite job search sites and browse them from one place; it’s like a browser for job hunting. Browsing is easy, just enter a keyword and location from the top bar, and switch between job sites with one tap. When you’ve found a job post you want to keep, just tap Save Job and it’s added to your Huntr board. The app also makes it easy to organize your job search, letting you:
- Move opportunities to new stages
- Track application, interview and offer dates
- Add tasks with deadlines, like following up, or preparing for interviews
- Add notes
