Have you tried out our job finder yet? In one sentence, it’s a tool for college students and recent grads that helps you find great jobs, build a stand-out application, and get real feedback and answers on your applications. Whew. Oh, and get hired. That too.
There are a lot of cool things about it, but I’m going to talk about three in particular that you might not realize you’ve got going for you.
1. Setting your preferences first makes all the difference.
Right when you get started using Koru’s job finder, you’ll see a bunch of beautiful jobs. So shiny! While it’s tempting to start clicking on all of them, we suggest you first set your preferences. You can do this by clicking the handy “Get Started” button.
What this does: You answer a few questions about what kinds of jobs you’re looking for. We put all the jobs we think would be a good fit on the top of your feed.
… And then you can start clicking all those pretty jobs like mad.
2. A lot of your answers save for future applications
Your first application might seem long, and that’s because you’re actually also creating a profile. Once you submit your first application, several sections will be saved on your account for any future applications.
For example, the “Showcase Your Strengths” section contains questions that are designed to assess how you like to work and what kind of unique strengths you’d bring to a team. Your answers apply to all positions, and so we only ask that you fill it out once.
And on that note …
3. There are no wrong answers!
It might feel scary to answer a question only once for all applications; however, you can rest easy because there are no wrong answers. Really.
Our application is designed to assess your unique strengths. Each answer you give will help us determine on which of the Koru7 JobStrengths you score highest. Everybody answers differently because everybody has different strengths. When in doubt, if a lot of the options seem correct, choose what answer you’d do first.
Good luck out there! Here’s to finding a great job.
