Leveling the playing field for the unemployed with free job search tools
Today I want to offer free job search help. If you were recently laid off or know someone who was laid off, I feel for you. It isn’t your fault and we don’t have any control over these circumstances. No one should have to go through this.
Readers of this blog know that I have been working with a partner on a side project, CareerTracker.co. For the next few months, I am offering a Career Tracker account free of charge. The Career Tracker tools automate the resume and cover letter writing process so you have a resume designed for recruiters and hiring managers. This access won’t cost you a dime and doesn’t require a credit card or a commitment. This is not an account with limited features. There is no catch. You get access to the full suite of products.

Covid-19 has hit every country, and in the United States, unemployment claims shot up to 3.2M. Folks need to find jobs and pay their rent. Others are worried about job security and brushing up their resumes. With 20 plus years in HR and recruiting, I know we have insider information on the job search that the average job applicant is unaware of. This isn’t anyone’s fault. Few candidates took a class that teaches candidates how to search for a job. Fewer learned from a professional recruiter. This is why we are making our job search tools available to anyone that has a need. Even if you are still employed and fear you may lose your job, start the resume writing process now. The promo code is at the end of this post and valid for the next few months.
Level the playing field
A few of my friends lost their homes in 2008 during the housing crisis because they couldn’t find a job. They didn’t know to approach me for help and I didn’t know they lost their job. That crisis was the impetus for this blog HRNasty.com. I started this site so I could provide inside information to job seekers that I gained working in HR. Today I am reaching close to 50K weekly subscribers and have helped countless candidates land jobs.
Recently, I and co-founder Brian Erke have been very excited about our newest project, CareerTracker.co. With this tool, we believe we can help unemployed find jobs and keep their homes in the wake of Covid-19.
The free job search tools
CareerTracker.co consists of technology tools that will help you create an unlimited number of resumes and cover letters. We have tools to help you track multiple job applications and reminders on when to follow up. Lastly, we have a salary calculator to help you negotiate your job offer.
Too many folks were affected by Covid-19 through no fault of their own. The way we can make a difference is to offer job search help via our suite of tools for free.
There is no catch, no credit card required, nada, zilch, zero. All the tools in the suite are free for the next few months
The field of tech has been good for both of us. We want to give back. No one should lose their home or car.
Recently, I have been asked to provide job search help by reviewing resumes. Brian has been creating logins for these folks so they could use all of the tools for free. This morning I was helping a longtime friend with their resume. I gave them a promo code to CareerTracker but for some reason, she chose not to use the app. Unfortunately, the resume she created wasn’t optimized for the eyes of a recruiter or recruiting software. The resume was created with all the misinformation they learned over the years through friends, family and college counselors. Everyone was well-intentioned and wanted to help. Unfortunately, very few of these folks were professional recruiters. When I explained why we were revising her resume so drastically, she quickly understood the logic behind the decisions. I know that others are unintentionally making similar mistakes and CareerTracker can help you avoid them.
I and Brian combined our years of recruiting and product management experience to create a powerful online application. This tool will create resumes and cover letters optimized for the eyes of a professional recruiter. Your resume will be laid out for the attitude of a recruiter that will only give your resume 3-5 seconds.
nasty: an unreal maneuver of incredible technique, something that is ridiculously good, tricky and manipulative but with a result that can’t help but be admired, a phrase used to describe someone who is good at something. “He has a nasty forkball”.
