Your Hatch profile is your secret weapon to level-up your job search, and it's just had an upgrade.
We think "the more, the merrier” is 100% true when it comes to having as many options as possible available to you to showcase your skills, experience and personality when you’re on the hunt for a new role.
We’re excited to ship 2 new features to your Hatch profile that level up the information you share with hiring managers to help you shine in front of Australia’s top companies, and to help get matched with roles that better suit you.
We know that crafting a perfect cover letter that showcases who you are and what you can do is often a daunting task (and let’s face it, half the time we’re not even sure if they’re read!). So we’ve introduced a way to share bite-sized glimpses of your personality, interests and aspirations for hiring managers and talent teams to see - served up in a way that will actually get noticed!
Prompts are a new way to spark interest from talent teams and hiring managers, enabling you to share anecdotes that reveal your problem-solving abilities, your commitment to teamwork, or your resilience in the face of challenges. It's a chance to express who you are beyond a resume or cover letter, and better yet they take a lot less time to create. Prompts that you answer live on your Hatch profile, and are included in every application that you submit on Hatch.
Your Hatch profile is now powered with a way to show, not just tell talent teams and hiring managers about work that you’ve done and projects that you’ve completed. You can now upload and showcase projects on your Hatch profile from previous jobs or your time at university.
Think of your projects section of your Hatch profile like a portfolio to show the work you’re most proud of. Whether it's a marketing campaign that generated impressive results, a coding project that solved a complex issue, or a university project that demonstrates your knowledge and expertise. Sharing projects on your Hatch profile is a powerful way of showing what you’re capable of with potential employers beyond words on a page.
There’s still many exciting things to come! Keep an eye out as we keep adding more new features to your profile. If there’s a feature you’d love to see to help the way you land your next role, let us know by emailing us at email@example.com.
