Business Career Services presents Symplicity Jobs and Careers, an app to enhance our existing online Career Services resources.
The Careers app will be a key tool in managing your career fair participation, internship and job applications, and on-campus interviews with the BCS. Symplicity’s new app has a user experience you’re all probably familiar with; “swipe left to dismiss, swipe right if interested." Test users have compared the app to a Tesla in that it’s so clean, modern and easy to use.
- The Symplicity app will recommend and allow you to discover jobs that are tailored specifically to you. Symplicity’s data scientists have created an algorithm that suggests a list of jobs to you based on the activity of students who are similar to you.
- With the “Search” tab, you can see ALL the jobs posted to HireJayhawks.com and filter through them using almost any criteria imaginable – keyword, location, qualification, industry, position type, job function, major/concentration, class level, work authorization, you name it.
- Labels will appear on each job letting you know if you’re not qualified based on the information in your student profile, helping to make sure you use your time wisely. A separate label will appear on jobs that are conducting on-campus interviews so that you can go ahead and proceed with requesting and scheduling an interview right from the app.
- You can apply to jobs posted to HireJayhawks.com directly from the app using the resume and cover letter attached to your student profile. Or, if you’d like, you can “favorite” a job and come back to apply for it later from your mobile device or a computer.
- In the “More” tab, you can access the most important features of HireJayhawks.com. You can see and edit your student profile, see approved and pending documents, quickly upload new documents, and sign up for counseling appointments and events. Plus, you can participate in surveys to provide feedback to the BCS, and you can access your account settings right from the app.
To the right is the HireJayhawks.com Recruiting Policy and User Guide that will help you as you set up your account and best utilize the system according to office policies.
