We all hate applying to jobs, why not outsource it

JobScout is a service where you can choose between two types of people to apply to jobs on your behalf. One is the spray and pray; $1/per job application. The other is a thoughtful job application for $3/job. I tried this myself and over the past year of trying literally over 300 different people I found some really amazing passionate job appliers.

Im just seeing if this is a viable business right now, my cell-phone is on the website I'd love your feedback.

This is really interesting, never thought about it. Is there any dashboard which shows what job has been applied ? What are your target people ?
@rupesh1983 - I've been trying to just really focus on the fulfillment process so its a spreadsheet we send over. The target are people who are 5+ years in to their career (5 to 20) and just want to outsource the application part. Maybe you have a job already but you want another one or you need a job and you want more results. Let me know if you have any more feedback. I think a problem I've been trying to work out is just the back and forth for fulfillment. It is really labor intensive.
This shows how broken the recruiting process is, and the disconnect is between companies and candidates
@garyfung - yea its really really broken. I dont really know how to fix it but this product really illuminated some things for me. So I used the product myself and I used both a person oversea's vs. a thoughtful person who was a professional copywriter (quantity over quality)....I thought quality would definitely win. It didn't, it was quantity. Its just insane. If you have any feedback let me know.
@usmaninatl fix recruiting itself. I see both sides of the fence. From company perspective, recruiters are often too expensive to be cost effective, while apps from job boards is a sea of noise. How to create a system in the middle that's better than both ends?
Nice idea and amazing ui. if you convert your website in a native app with https://swaptoapp.com then you get more reach from app stores as well as play store.

Also you get daily visits as your website will stay as an app in users mobile so they can open it any time.
Just think do you know the url of any website you visited on betalist two day's ago. I think you forget that but if you visit a site and then from that site you download that website app then it will stay in your mobile and after seeing for two three days you remind it forever.
This is the feature of app. Also app gives an accessibility to your users. As typing a website url on browser is sometime boring and apartfrom that if you see towords an app it is easy to launch.
@hatchexa I'm not sure if you are trying to sell your app - but I don't agree with that. I'm building a product and I need to iterate fast on it. I purposefully have not over-built the website. Maybe there would be an angle with an app and keeping people engaged with push notifications but not sure what that would be.
