What triggered your job search? What drew you to Seen?
I began my latest job search passively looking. I wasn’t in a rush, and I also didn’t want to have to put in too much effort to begin connecting with companies. I came across Seen while searching for sites that provided a marketplace for this purpose. It was very easy to sign up and enter my information. My profile was up in under 30 mins. It wasn’t long before I started receiving requests to screen for various companies. It was nice having all offer information up front.
How did Seen ease your job search?
I’ve used Hired in the past. There is a greater barrier to getting your profile set up to start connecting with companies. This is why I started looking at other marketplaces that provided the same service. Once I set up my Seen account, I realized how easy it was going to be to finish setting up my profile. I figured why not try out this new service. If I didn’t see any benefit in a week or two, I could always try another service. I got everything set up and began receiving interview requests within a week. As there was so much movement, I didn’t need to seek out other services.
What excites you most about your new role?
Working for an amazing company that has a great mission. Working on an exciting product with experienced, passionate teammates. Continuing to learn and sharing those learnings with those I work with.
Tips for fellow tech job seekers?
