Announcing a Major Upgrade to StartWire
June 3rd, 2011
Well, it’s been a long month but the DEV team @ StartWire is happy to announce a major upgrade to StartWire.
Here’s what you’ll notice:
- You can now track where you’ve applied and get automatic application status updates just by emailing your application confirmation to firstname.lastname@example.org. That’s right, just take the ubiquitous ‘thank you for applying’ email, hit forward, and send it to email@example.com. If the email contains all the data we need to track your application, you’re done. If not, we’ll let you need to do next. Regardless, it makes keeping your job search organized and out of the black-hole a snap!
- A super-cool, new user interface. We opened up the application, added a home page that includes some great easy-to-follow instructions, and made some of our most popular and powerful features a lot easier to use.
- Our jobs tab is now a recommendations tab. We’ve talked to thousands of you about what you like and don’t like about your job search. Besides the black-hole, your #1 beef is that you’re flooded with jobs that don’t match your interests. We’ve taken that to heart and have replaced our Jobs tab with our new Recommendations tab. Now we SUGGEST jobs to you based on your profile, where you’ve applied, and who you know. It’s version 1.0…so we’d love your input…but we think this is a critical 1st step to ending job spam. Check it out!
Happy Friday and Happy Job Searching,
The StartWire Team
