Here I would like to share in public some of my secret tools which help me to go beyond the stage of "Sending the CV and waiting for a call"
1. FTL app:
My most favourite app when I apply to LinkedIn jobs. FTL is the short name of FindThatLead, where through it, you can find the email of the LinkedIn profile. So let's suppose you find the LinkedIn profile of recruiter or HR officer of your favourite company which you always dream to be part of it, by one click and FTL will give his/her email with the accurate percentage.
The app is free with 10 profile emails to check weekly. If you would like to get more, the prices are affordable in various plans.
2. Mailtester.com website:
Following to the previous app function, let's suppose the provided accuracy of email is less than for instance 70% so this website can check for free if the email is active or not, correct or not. (remember to ask MR. Google also!)
Watch this video, to learn more how to find anyone's email (I recommend to check all of Johnny Campbell videos on "Social Talent" channel)
3. Jobscan.co website:
You find your dream job advertised and "Yes!" it's your opportunity to say to the company "Hello, is it me you're looking for?" :)
But in usual, because of ATS you are dismissed and your CV was sent to the black hole. But not anymore with this paid website (unfortunately) as it compares between your CV and job description, trying to match your CV with the keywords mentioned there. A nice matching percentage appear with full details. I highly recommend it as you can then include what are missed in your CV before sending even by email.
4. TagCrowd website:
Well, I leave it at the end of the list as it helpful in some limits. I mean, it calculates the keywords in your CV. Let me explain. If the word "administrator" is repeated five times and the word "officer" two times in your CV, so logically, if recruiter used the word "officer" as a requested keyword, then ATS will leave your CV at the bottom of the list as it's not repeated as much as other CVs.
On another hand, I prefer to use it as a guidance, not any more than this purpose.
Finally, I will try to update this post each time I discover a new cool tool or website help us as a job seeker. Also, all of us will be happy to share and know any other exciting websites, so let us know about it :)
