Save time applying to jobs with Simplify

Performance Comic

I have been testing out Simplify and it is amazing how it can save you time when you apply for jobs.

No, I am not getting any benefit from sharing this. Yesterday I applied for a job that was 5 pages and in the past that application would have taken me 30 minutes. With the Simplify extension, it asked if I wanted to fill in my data in the form, and when I said yes, 10 seconds later it was done. I only had to answer a few random questions that Simplify didn’t know and I submitted the application.

If you are just applying to jobs directly on company websites this is the extension you want to use. Besides that, however, if you are a college grad or intern they have 200,000 jobs that you can easily apply to inside their website or directly on the company website. They have a nice summary of the important facts about the job. It is really well done.

Is there a downside to this website? To be honest I had a problem initially signing up. I have a less common email domain, and they didn’t recognize it as valid. I sent in an email and about two weeks later they apologized for getting back to me late, said they were swamped, and fixed the issue. I was able to log in immediately. They could have told me to buzz off and use a more common email domain but they changed their system to accommodate me who is no one. I thought this was really nice. I don’t blame them for not supporting initially a unique email web-based system, and I appreciate that they made the effort to adjust their systems.
