Project Description

THE PROBLEM
 

There's a monumental gap between the expectation and the reality of landing a job, which is killing the mental well-being of job-seekers today.

Do you know what it's like to go through a job search?

Do you agree that there is a lack of power between candidates and companies?

Have you ever been ghosted?

How do we know these are big issues? YEARS of experience directly from the job seekers:

- Candidates want access to a job search platform focused on transparency

- Due to ghosting, candidates become overwhelmed, stressed, and discouraged

- The lack of empowerment, compounded with the unknown, creates distrust in the process


WHAT JOB SEEKERS ARE SAYING

“Ghosting is my biggest struggle. I hated not hearing back after applying, phone screening, or even sometimes spending hours of my time to prep for a final interview!”


OUR SOLUTION

To empower the job seeker through a transparent community allowing for raw feedback, job application organization, and access to a key metric called Ghostability.

🤔 Imagine a world where a key Ghostability metric can not only reduce the amount of candidate application fatigue for companies, but more importantly, guide a job-seeker's focus on which applications to get excited about

 

Did you know???
 

93% said they had been ghosted by a potential employer after an interview or after they were contacted for more information.
