As a professional association dedicated to supporting all women in revenue, we understand the challenges of transitioning in the job market. While a job search can be a complex and daunting process, we’ve curated a list of tools that our members swear by to help automate and professionalize their job searches. Once you identify your aspirations and develop your professional pitch, these tools can streamline, organize, and automate your job search process.
Text Blaze is a powerful tool that allows you to create text templates and easily paste them anywhere, including Gmail, LinkedIn, and other platforms. This tool saves hours messaging people for networking, replying to emails/InMails, commenting on posts, and more.
Another great tool on our list is ChatGPT by OpenAI. With this tool, you can create resumes, cover letters, thank you notes, and even answers to popular interview questions in seconds. However, it’s important to review the content carefully and add personalization and tweaks where necessary.
Teal is another tool we highly recommend. It acts like your own personal ATS or CRM for the job search, allowing you to organize and manage your job search in one place.
Grammarly is a must-have tool for anyone looking for a job. It scans your text and corrects any grammatical errors, making it great for resumes, emails, cover letters, and even LinkedIn posts and comments.
Mixmax is a tool we love for automating emails and follow-ups, saving hours and allowing you to personalize messaging at scale. Plus, it even sends reminders on when to follow up.
For those who struggle with public speaking, Speeko – A.I. Speech Coach is a fantastic tool. It allows you to practice interviewing with an AI speech coach and helps you get better at public speaking in the process.
If you’re struggling to match your resume with a job description, ResyMatch by Cultivated Culture is the tool for you. This resume scanner and optimizer, courtesy of Austin Belcak, matches your resume with any job description to increase your chances of landing an interview.
Hunter is another great tool that allows you to find anyone’s email for outreach. It tells you a company’s email alias so you can make an educated guess, making it easier to get in touch with the right people.
The List is a central layoff list used by thousands of companies to hire. If you’ve been impacted by layoffs, you can add your name, and companies will reach out directly if you’re a fit for any open roles. On our resource center, you’ll also find several other links with companies who are actively hiring.
And, be sure and become a Women in Revenue member to (1) gain access to our active #jobopportunities Slack channel and (2) join our Mentorship Program to find a mentor (or mentee) that can be a sounding board and thought-partner as you navigate important steps in your career.
