Hi, I am Faizan and some of you may know me as Career Geek from careergeekblog.com. I successfully exit Career Geek in July 2015 after the site being bought out by a European company. After having taken a break for a few months, I decided to bring to life an idea that I had been thinking about for a couple of years now, enter Jobbuddy.

I introduce my new startup Jobbuddy.

Jobbuddy (Jobbuddy.co) keeps track of jobs you want and simplifies your job search management. No more spreadsheets to track your jobs. Take your job search anywhere.

As a job seeker myself a few years ago, I struggled to keep track of all the jobs I wanted to apply to, namely  a job seeker would have three issues:

  1. the problem of saving a job on, for e.g. a PC in my university library, then going home and realising you don’t have the link for the job and searching again.
  2. a job deadline is missed because job seekers couldn’t prioritise which jobs to apply in which order?
  3. CV and cover letter documents, your CV is an integral part of your job search and you want it to be available anywhere you go – and not just stuck on your local machine.

Jobbuddy simplifies your job search management by tackling all three of the issues listed above.

Once you register for FREE with Jobbuddy, you can do the following:
