What is Huntr
Huntr is a tool to help you track and organize your job search. The jobs you apply for are scattered all over the place (Indeed, LinkedIn, email, personal meetings, etc), making it hard to remember where we've applied and where we stand with each opportunity. Huntr offers one place to keep all of those jobs and all the information related to them.
A Huntr board represents a specific job search effort during your career. Right now you should only need one board. If you're searching for a new job in a few years' time you'll want to create a new board. A board is made up of opportunities inside a stage, from Wishlist or Applied all the way to the Offer stage.
Adding and Tracking Jobs
The first thing to do after you've created your Huntr account is to fill your board with job opportunities. Jobs that interest you go into the Wishlist stage, you can also add jobs into the Applied, Interview or Offer stages.
Add jobs from any website with our Chrome extension
The easiest way to add jobs to Huntr is with our Chrome extension. Say you're browsing for jobs and find an interesting post; click the extension icon and all the job details will be pre-filled into a form, just click save and you're done!

Adding jobs through the web app
You can also add jobs from within the Huntr app, just click on the Add Job button located on the bottom right of your board, add a company name, a job title, and you're done.
Moving jobs to next stages
With enough work and a bit of luck you'll be moving job opportunities across your board's pipeline in no time. To move opportunities to new stages just drag the job card and drop it on the new stage.
