The 30 Seconds Job Search

Introduction

Rationale

  1. Recruiters are Lazy
  2. Recruiters need to fill positions quickly
  3. Most of applicants are crap
  4. Lifespan of a job offer is 2 weeks
  5. Recruiters have yearly and quarterly objectives
  6. The objective of a funnel is to move from a step to another.

The Method

  1. Head up to Linkedin.com/jobs
  2. Search for a position that you’re interested in for example “Operations Manager” and your preferred location.
  3. Use the filters:
    - Select
    Past Week (if it’s your first time) otherwise Past 24 hours
    - Select your level of seniority
    - Hit ‘All filters’: There you should turn on “
    Easy Apply” and “Less than 10 applicants”
    - You should prioritize “
    Less than 10 applicants” but you don’t have to.
  4. Click Easy Apply on all the results.

Rules

  1. Apply to as many jobs as possible, every day. Be creative in your queries:
    - Change the location
    - Change titles (“Operations”, “Operations manager”, “Manager of Operations”)
  2. Don’t spend more than 30 seconds per application.
  3. If the “Easy Apply” pop-up asks too many questions abort. We’re not here to justify our application or do unpaid research.
  4. Don’t apply to jobs that ask about qualifications you don’t have. The Pop-up will say “How proficient are you in German?” If you don’t speak german jump to the next one.
