I am planning to build the UI for AplikoJob in the next 7 days, so screenshots should be up soon.
Apliko is Esperanto for ‘Application’Platform: Windows and Windows Phone
Distribution: Windows App Store
Applying for jobs has become a longwinded process with many companies now requiring applicants to fill out several pages of online forms for each job they are applying to.
A single job application can easily take up an hour or more, and although the same questions are being asked in most forms, they usually end up having a slightly different format.
This combined with an increasingly competitive job market makes it hard for recent graduates, students, and other job seekers to keep up the momentum in their job search.
This is where AplikoJob comes in. AplikoJob allows job seekers to digitalise their CV and use text snippets of it in online job applications. The software allows people applying for jobs to complete each application quickly and efficiently. This – in turn – allows them to apply for more jobs faster, improving their chances of finding employment.
AplikoJob uses two different search features to help job seekers with their applications:
Proactive Search is used while the user browses a job site or views an application form. AplikoJob analyses the contents of the web site and suggests text snippets that the applicant might want to use in the current section of the application form.
Reactive Search allows the applicant to further improve AplikoJob’s results by typing into search box. AplikoJob will use the information entered by the user to find the part of their CV that they want to use and give them the option to copy the information into the form straightaway.
Additionally AplikoJob remembers what sites it has been used on, making it easier for job seekers to track their previous applications.
