Bublup to help you with your Jobhunt
One of the issues I faced when starting to job hunt was how do I keep track of the jobs I applied for, what job did I apply for, when did I apply, where did I apply, what cover letter and CV I actually sent, the name of the recruiter, the status of each application?
Where do I keep the job description that was emailed to me without having to trawl through my email? What if I saw a job on Social Media ( or anywhere else)and I want to save it for later to review, what if someone sends me a screenshot of a job .. the list goes on…
I have started to use a brilliant new tool called Bublup , it’s both an app on your phone and also an add on your PC. If you decide to join - the free plan gives you everything you need - and you and I will get 1 GB free. I saw it first mentioned in Wade Sellers Newsletters about new Apps and how he uses it to collect the content for his newsletter.
It’s a tool that allows you to save any digital content, organize it based on your needs, and then review it!
