Candidate Product Update: September 2017
This is the first in a series of posts where we will be sharing the most exciting updates to our apps every month. At Merlin, our goal is to make the job search as fast and as painless as possible for you. We listened to your feedback and added features aimed at improving your experience. Sit tight, because this is a big one!
A new and improved search
Apply to jobs directly
Now you can apply to jobs right from the search page. No need to go into the job detail page to apply!
Tap on the “X” icon in the top right corner of jobs to remove them from your search. This way, you can keep your search results relevant and prevent jobs you’re not interested in from appearing in your search again.
Track your progress
Now there’s a progress bar at the bottom of the search to show you how much progress you’re making towards your job search.
See more relevant jobs
You can now filter your job search by full-time or part-time positions. Your job interests are now applied to your searches by default to show you more relevant results!
Start a conversation with employers
You can now start a conversation with employers before you apply to a job. You can send up to 10 messages to employers to find out more about the job before applying.
That’s a wrap! These updates should be rolling out to you within the next couple of days. If you haven’t received these updates already, update your Merlin app on the App Store or Play Store. We’re always striving to make a better product for you. Let us know what features you’d like to see next in the comments below!
