By March 26, 2012

Follow me on:

Huntsy.comPinterest makes it easy for people to keep track of their online favorites by pinning them to boards. Huntsy.com provides a similar tool for job seekers to keep track of job postings and to find connections at companies listing jobs.

Huntsy.com helps job seekers organize their job searches, utilize their social networks to find job search help, and manage job application deadlines.

How Huntsy Works

Sign up for an account and install the "Add to Huntsy" button into your browser. Whenever you see a job that you are interested in, click the button to store it for later so you can apply when you're ready. Huntsy will store the URL and the job posting details.

From the Huntsy dashboard, you can stay on-task with scheduling interviews, submitting resumes, and following up for each job interview. Huntsy creates a timeline of tasks the user should complete for each job listing, from applying for the job to following up with the employer after an interview.

Job seekers can also keep track of interviews and other important job search events, and store multiple resumes and email drafts.

To tap your social media connections, you can also connect your LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter accounts and Huntsy will scan your social networks to find potential contacts for each job listing. This tool helps job seekers find connections they might not have been aware of who can help with your job search.

Huntsy is quick and easy to install and, if you need help keeping your job search organized, definitely worth a try.

Thanks for the post, Alison! We’re really excited about Huntsy’s launch and think the product will be a huge asset in a job seeker’s toolbox. Our goal is streamline the job hunt so that applicants can focus their time less on the organizational elements and more on the high-value items – like identifying the right opportunity and preparing for interviews. So, all of our features are meant to save time, be easy to use, and be accessible on a variety of platforms where job seekers spend their time.

We’d love to hear everyone’s feedback, so give Huntsy a try at http://www.huntsy.com and send us your thoughts to hello@huntsy.com
