New feature: Removing the anxiety from your next job application

Ladders’ new feature provides insight into where your application stands with recruiters.

Maybe you’re on the hunt for a new job. Maybe you aren’t actively looking for something new, but you happen to open an email with that one job opening you couldn’t possibly resist looking into further.

You click the link logging into Ladders and breeze through the application process. Success! Your finely tuned resume and cover letter have been sent to the gatekeeper of your dream job.

Now what? You wait…

We know this can be a stressful time for any job applicant. Waiting to hear a response, wondering if your resume has been viewed, possibly even assessing how you might stack up against the competition.

Well, we listened to your feedback and have created the Application Update email – designed specifically to keep you informed of the most critical developments in your job-application process. With one glance you will now know which actions the recruiter has taken on your application, and how that compares with the other applications the recruiter received.

Keeping you in-the-know about your application: Just another way Ladders is trying to make your job search as simple and stress-free as possible.

Look out for your next Application Update email in your inbox!
