How I automated my job search to land 30+ interviews during the pandemic
TL;DR: I got myself ~30+ interviews doing this and it takes an hour to set up (once your resume / background is pitched right).
I use Crunchbase Pro’s company search feature to get a list of companies I’m interested in and their relevant contact emails. I use the filter feature to filter for US based companies that fit the industry, company stage, etc. that I’m looking for.
I export the list from Crunchbase and input it into Hunter.io’s bulk email verification tool. This validates that all the emails are legitimate.
I then import the verified list into Hunter.io’s email campaign sender tool. This allows you to send semi-personalized emails to thousands of people at once.
I then write a cold email explaining who I am & link my background.
I then run the email campaign. One of my email campaigns had a 24% response rate and led to ~30 interviews.
Getting your story right, crafting a uniquely compelling resume, and knowing how to effectively follow up with hiring mangers determines your results. It’s the difference between no replies and a 24% response rate.
P.S. I’ve spent $50K and several months building a product to help the most ambitious job seekers land interviews at their favorite companies.
The best part is it requires 0 time and effort on their part. No more filling out applications, sending emails, or spending hours at networking sessions.
I'm now opening up my product to select groups of people from the public. At this stage a little under 20% of applicants qualify.
