Careerleaf – Simplify Your Job Search


Millions of jobs are posted online each day, but manually searching the latest postings on thousands of niche job boards takes more time than any single person has available. Careerleaf is a tool that aggregates information from multiple online avenues and decreases the time people spend searching and applying for positions online.

Careerleaf can be broken down into a few basic sections. First off is the web-app’s job board community, where you can search through the millions of postings Careerleaf gathers from niche job boards spread across the net. Next, you’ll want to build a profile that recruiters and employers can view to learn more about your skills and qualifications. The profile you create should include links to your social networking accounts and online portfolios, along with any websites or videos where your professional work can be found. This profile is also where you can manage and track all your job search activity.

Another important component of Careerleaf is the web-app’s “Tracklet” tool, which acts as a virtual personal assistant, automatically tracks your employment activities, and helps with filling out government unemployment forms. The Tracklet tool can also be useful when you’re applying for jobs on partner sites, since it saves your information and automatically enters it into the appropriate spaces in online applications.

Practical Uses:

  • Find open positions in your industry
  • Save time when filling out job applications
  • Create a profile that potential employers can view when researching your background
  • Use the same email address when managing all career correspondence

Insider Tips:

  • Track the applications you’ve sent out with the Application Manager tool
