Job Seekers

Help make Plum better for job candidates. We want to know what you think! What do you wish Plum could do for you?

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Bring back the old results page

    I know that you changed it to only show positive attributes to give candidates a "positive brand experience" with employers, but the value for candidates is diluted this way. I liked seeing where I fell on the bell curve for all the traits, even for my weaknesses. And now I can't even see my problem solving score. Why do the employers get more information than we are allowed to have about ourselves, especially since we are the ones giving it???

    Spoken as someone with low agreeableness, but come on. Tell us the truth already for our trouble.

            • History in MyAccount page

              In account page, it would be great if we can see our previous submissions and if those submissions are received by employers without any problems.

              • Permanent URL

                I'd like to see a permanent URL for my profile so I can share it with other potential employers or include it as an attached supporting document if it were a PDF. For now, I'll need to screenshot and paste to a word doc or experiment with the long unassuming URL that I'm viewing my profile through and hope it stays active. Fun survey BTW. Nice Job

                    • Match Talents and Personality to Employers

                      It will be nice for job-seekers to see Companies seeking individuals with their Talents and Personality so they can also reach out to employers and make the case for why they should be employed.

                      • Notifications/Invites to Apply to Jobs w/ High Match Scores

                        Since Plum profiles are static by design, it would be nice if I received notifications when jobs postings that matched my skills (ie. High Plum Match Score) were posted with a link directly to the job description/application.

                          • Add a Account Deletion button

                            Please add a button to delete an account. Candidates have little choice in the matter, if they want to apply to certain positions. But it shouldn't be permanent, unless the candidate chooses that. Especially considering that your profile may not be an accurate representation of a candidate's true personality (in my case, I have too many accomplishments that negate what your profile says my strengths and weaknesses are. I have no use for Plum).

                                  • Additional Profile Feedback

                                    I just profiled myself to see how Plum works, and I was very impressed. My recommendations: I'd also be interested in seeing the talents I'm exceptionally bad at, things that I should work on, and job situations I should try to avoid. Lastly, it would be nice to see what specific types of jobs I would map well too, and what I should avoid. For example, people like me make good product managers and business consultants, but bad librarians and collections agents, etc.

                                    • Provide a way to download a pdf of my Plum Profile

                                      I would love to be able to download a polished PDF of my profile so that I can add it as an attachment to my application with employers and to my offline records.

                                      • after this, one should be employed atleast

                                        This would make you know your strength and flaws in a working environment

                                        • Allow Resumes and Cover Letters to be uploaded at a later time

                                          I wanted to see what my Plum profile would be and I didn't upload any materials. It would be nice to be allowed to upload them at a later date.
