👋Hey IH -
As a software engineer, I tend to receive at least a few job proposals per week from recruiters usually via LinkedIn or email. Most messages seem to be generated automatically and therefore impersonal and I've found there to be a lot of noise.
I'm thinking about building a tool where recruiters can submit job proposals to candidates in a way that provides more signal from the noise. Structured fields would capture the key pieces of information the candidate cares about. Free text fields would encourage original messaging (e.g. by disallowing copy/pasting). The candidate would then have a dashboard that neatly displays the key information from all of the job proposals they've received. Basically I'm thinking along the lines of SubmitHub for job proposals.
If you receive a lot of cold outreach messages from recruiters, would you sign up for such a tool?
If you have experience with recruiting, is the lack of automation in this workflow a non-starter?
I have a dummy landing page set up that explains the idea further (I'm not really looking for feedback on the landing page itself, just the overall idea): https://www.candidateone.io/
