We’ve all been there,  job hunting is a time-consuming process (you only need to do a google Image search “searching for a job meme” to relate). Even after you’ve put in the time seeking out the roles you want, updating your CV and writing a cover letter can take hours. Once you apply for the jobs of interest, you’re likely to spend even more unnecessary hours filling in online forms and answering what seems like hours of endless repetitive questions, including those you’ve already covered on your resume #yawn

Luckily for the time-poor, companies who recognise that not all great Candidate Experiences are created equal are offering more simplified solutions for applying to their roles and removing the stress associated with finding a new job.

But what are the benefits to using these platforms?


More companies are using LinkedIn to post. With LinkedIn’s Easy Apply option you can apply for jobs at the click of a button. By choosing Easy Apply your details are sent straight to the job poster (the Recruiter)  via your profile and the best part, there are no tedious forms to complete. If you’re confident that your experience highlights you as the ideal candidate, then save yourself the time and opt for one of these one-click alternatives.


Applying for a job through Facebook allows for your application to pre-populate based on information shared on your Facebook profile. This is a particularly useful option for roles focused on digital marketing or similar, where your social media skills will make up a large part of your hiring potential.


Creating a profile on LiveHire means setting up one centralised dashboard, from which you can apply for jobs at affiliate companies that you would like to work for. By including your CV, skills, experience and personal drivers, you can put yourself forward for opportunities that don’t even exist yet simply by joining the company’s talent community.


Weploy  assists “Weployees” (their candidate base) in finding short-term roles by instantly matching their skills and availability to opportunities listed by employers. Weployees receive notifications as soon as appropriate roles are posted, matching them to jobs within seconds.
