The technological and societal evolution
We often talk about the ways in which technology and society have evolved in recent years. These evolutions often cross paths as society becomes reliant on technology.
Something that has, and always will, stayed constant in life is that we continuously are seeking strong employment opportunities. What has changed is the way we seek out these opportunities.
The internet reigns in job searching
Gone are the days of sifting through a newspaper to find an ad for your next job. The Internet has become the tool for looking for jobs.
However, there are many different platforms of Internet job searching and knowing where to start can be overwhelming. Monster, Indeed, and Looksharp are just drops in the bucket of what’s available.
Presumi aids in managing your resume
One of the latest sites to assist this group is Presumi. While it does not post job listings, the idea is users can keep a closer eye on their job search through a series of steps.
These steps include: 1) Upload your resume and apply for jobs, 2) Send trackable emails for job applications, 3) Allow Presumi to go to work. With the tracking system, a user can see if an employer has looked through their resume or not.
But, what does it do?
What Presumi offers is the sending of tailored emails before deadlines, creating personal calendars, and tracking all users’ email and resume activity. With a visual platform, users can see their job search progress.
Presumi strives to reduce the stigma of a job applicant just being a statistic and helps create a path for more thoughtful job seeking. It serves as a tool to help on the job hunt, but does not work alongside job offerings.
What works for one, may not work for all
The platform is simple and offers an abundance of charts and graphs to make tracking easier to digest. Being that users can apply for jobs by linking their uploaded resume, Presumi is able to track a page’s traffic.
This site could serve as a beneficial tool for job seekers who may not be 100 percent confident in their resume. It may not be the best tool for someone who has a specific resume style and way of applying for jobs.
In the end…
What is important to remember when searching for jobs online is not only researching the job and the company, but research the website you are utilizing. What may work for one may not work for another.
Sites such as Hired offer a more stylized job-search niche, while a site like Monster is more broad. Being mindful of finding a site that works best for you is likely to correspond with job postings that are more specific to what you want.
