Show HN: We are going to help you land a job from today's Who is hiring thread

Hi HN!

We are Pascal and Beroli, co-founders of Voorjob (https://www.voorjob.com) a small startup from Copenhagen that is going to help you get a new job from today's Who is hiring thread.

We started sketching this idea while I was looking for a new job opportunity at October's thread. During the job search I went thought a process that might be familiar to many of you: sending dozens of resumes, writing custom cover letters, having interviews, getting ghosted, the whole nine...

That was when we realized one thing: Today's hiring process with all those fancy ATS, resume parsers and ML algorithms, is kind of broken, the power is almost entirely with the side that is hiring.

We decided to fight back!

At first we are trying to solve the data manageability of job hunting, our initial set of features encompasses a few tools that will help you thought this journey: backlog of applications, application manager, assets (resumes and cover letters)

In addition to the management/tracking features, you get insights! Find out which cover letter (or resume) is working better, you can track variations for different positions, learn your bounce rate, your conversion rate and get to know where to focus your efforts. And that is just the beginning, we have a backlog with 100's of new features and improvements, and we hope to prioritize and grow it from your feedback.

One of our early users, agreed to share his job stats with the HN community so you can peek a look at what kind of information our product provides: https://www.voorjob.com/app/link/6da0ba76-e753-4012-95fd-53409e6ab78c/

Since everyone here has probably hunted for jobs before, we would love to listen your feedback and learn more about the pain points that you think we should be focusing next.

Happy hunting!
