Why creating a stand-out profile on Hatch can help you land your dream role in 2024.

Have you ever felt like applying for a job with just a resume hasn’t been enough to showcase your true strengths? At Hatch, we believe that a piece of paper simply isn’t enough to demonstrate your holistic fit for a role, and we’re on a mission to change that. 

In 2024, you can attract your dream employer by creating a rich profile, just like a profile in a dating app. 

What’s a Hatch profile?

  • A space to showcase who you are, what you can do, and what you stand for in more ways than words on a resume. 
  • A key part of how we’re transforming the way people search and apply for jobs, by enabling the re-use of your profile for multiple applications.
