    Search Startup Jobs - Week 4 Build in Public - Oct. 1st Month Stats

    This week truly shows that hard work, planning, preparation, and setting little goals to a larger goal, 100% pay off.  I will do my best to share the weekly progress, in the weekly posts and whenever a month's end happens within that week to recap the month before total stats.  If it becomes confusing and too much please let me know! The biggest thing is after the success of everything this week, I will be investing in fully making this something that will last the test of time and fully serve Startup jobs to candidates looking for all employers in the startup space.  I have done some pretty manual processes and it's showing to not be working at a larger scale.  So, before 2023 there will be a redesign + tons more Companies and Jobs! Lastly, unfortunately, there have been many that have been impacted by the layoffs this week.  This trend seems to be something that is a larger scale direction of companies in the coming near future as well.  If you have not seen I have promised ANY one affected by this now or in the next few month, I am here to help.  I as everyone knows am adding startup jobs/companies manually.  I am essentially seeing 100s of companies and even more jobs daily/weekly. If you have been impacted by any of these now, please email, DM, or message me however you need to.  Send me your LinkedIn profile and email address.  I do not need you to register as a user on Search Startup jobs, that is not my goal during this difficult time for you.  I want to curate jobs I'm already doing for myself.  Let me save you time in this tough time and I will email you in an email thread whenever the jobs you told me you want to match your interests. All you need to do is just tell me you're all set/stop when you don't need me to help anymore, OR we worked to help you find that next amazing role at a startup. My only ask is since I will be sending you direct job listing to startup jobs and ATS application links, just to reference us in the How you heard or in the interview process.  And, my only other ask is, just remember us in the future after this life-changing time, and for the next role, you look for personally.  Or, if you make a hiring decision when you land that role, and things turn around out there, just remember us ?

And the final what we did at a high level, was posted our first Post directed to impact Startup companies and employers.  With the success of getting jobseeker and candidates applying I wanted to engage the other side.  With our 9 Top ATS for Startups to use, my goal was to help evaluate commonalities of each, group them and rank based on what would be the most succinct, had pricing or package details, a way to start myself, and if there was a free function. With that post I was not expecting the ATS partners themselves to engage at all!

    Week 4 Conclusion

    An insane week and things really  ?? for us this week. Still $0 MRR but I want to continue to build the candidate community of HIGH QUALITY candidates and leverage them and their value to the startup world.  After, 3-4 separate conversations with people in passing this week, every time I tell the story of the why, and how there is no site serving candidates of all evolutions of their startup journey, I continue to hear "you have something really good here" and those little things push me day in and day out, week over week. I don't have to get to $10 million today, but little wins will get you to there faster than thinking of the end before you even start.  Until next week!
