JobHero is a platform offering a variety of tools and resources to make your job search smarter, not harder.
There are many different sites on the web that offer job boards or job listings. In fact, the web has become the preferred method of screening potential candidates for most employers. With so many places to search and apply for jobs, it can be difficult to keep track of all the applications and resumes you’ve submitted or emails you’ve sent. JobHero has built a platform that helps you keep track of all that information, complete with a set of tools that make your job search both smarter and easier. The site’s main feature is its dashboard, which allows users to save jobs from across the web and keep track of your application progress in one place. It’s a necessary tool for anyone that’s experienced the difficulty in applying to multiple jobs at the same time, and it’s much more effective than keeping a list on a Word document or spreadsheet.
One of JobHero’s coolest features is its free Sidekick bookmarklet, which integrates with your browser like any other extension. Once you find a job that interests you on a site like Indeed or LinkedIn, you simply click the bookmarklet to save information about the job to your JobHero dashboard. The bookmarklet grabs all of the necessary information about the position, allowing you to scan for more jobs more quickly and browse them later at your own convenience. You can also easily upload documents and contact information to your JobHero dashboard, ensuring that you don’t miss deadlines or forget to follow up with your prospective employer. Like LinkedIn, JobHero also has an editorial section with articles offering career advice. You can also sign up to have these articles delivered as a newsletter. JobHero’s dashboard’s design and navigation still is far from perfect, but it definitely is one of the most useful tools when it comes to optimizing your job search experience.
