Are you sick of trawling through Seek and other online job boards? Then, you have to check this out!
For those of you who are single, or have a friend who is (let’s be honest, we’ve all seen a Tinder account), it looks and feels exactly the same as Tinder.
It’s called Found!
And I think I’m in love! (No, I haven’t confused it for Tinder!) Seriously, wait until you see this app.. I don’t think I’ve ever had so much fun searching for a job!
Being a fairly new app, I didn’t expect to find much in our region, but I was pleasantly surprised to see lots of Geelong jobs coming up. Most of the jobs are in hospitality and retail, but there are also opportunities in sales and admin.
Firstly, you update your profile to include long walks on the beach and holding hands.. oops, I mean, you include your employment history, education and even your referees.
Then, you start to search for jobs. Each job comes up with a profile of the employer, location and description of the job.
You then have the opportunity to hit yes or no (the same as swiping left or right on Tinder). By hitting yes, your details are provided to the employer who can then make contact with you to discuss the opportunity.
One of the best parts is that you don’t have to upload anything!!
This would have to be the simplest way of searching for a job I have seen yet. I’m hoping for more of a move in this direction.
Check it out for yourself (www.found.careers) and let us know how you go 🙂
