What can you use the app for?

Huntsy is an app which helps users manage and maintain their job search. It allows them to keep track of where they have applied, when they applied, and what has happened since they applied. It also helps users pull data on jobs from across the web and store it in one unified location where users can refer to it again and again. Users can add their own to-do tasks. Huntsy will actually create “marching orders” for the day which tell users what they need to do in order to forward their job search that day. Users who use Huntsy are more likely to succeed because they will be doing more of the activities which help them get jobs. The networking tool even gives users a back door to the job market by helping users identify and use connections at other companies.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Huntsy launched in 2012 and has since signed thousands of users. Users return at a good rate and tend to use the site for ten minutes or longer, indicating a high degree of engagement with Huntsy. It has been featured on Mashable.

What are the differences to other apps?

While there are certainly other job search apps, Huntsy’s focus is unique. Huntsy focuses on the “finding a job is a full time job” aspect of the job hunt. Other job seeking apps may allow users to save jobs or may allow users to browse through their social networks, but Huntsy brings it all together into one organized whole.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Huntsy is very easy to use. When a user finds a job the user can click on the Huntsy tool which they will upload to their browser bar. The tool looks like the little Huntsy owl. Huntsy then saves all of the relevant job information. Users could spend a few hours locating jobs and then apply to them one by one, later, by calling up their Huntsy account rather than calling up every Career Builder and Monster.com page they visited. It’s easy to add notes or to schedule interviews, too. Seeing the entire job search in one place makes it seem far less overwhelming.

How does the registration process work?

Users may register with Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn. Users may also choose to register manually. The fast registration methods allow the user to upload the tool near-instantly so they can begin using the Huntsy site right away.

What does it cost to use the application?

Huntsy is free to use. There are no ads on the site to distract from the user’s experience.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Any person who is seeking a new job will enjoy Huntsy, as will individuals who are thinking of starting a new career. Job seeking really is a full time endeavor and Huntsy encourages users to treat the process with as much professionalism as one might be expected to bring to the job. Users will never forget what they’ve applied to or apply to the same jobs multiple times. Users can also see, at a glance, whether or not they’ve been truly productive at their job search or whether or not they are just spinning their wheels. If a user does not yet have the job of his or her dreams Huntsy is the tool for them.
