    • Link to other job postings

      Assuming Plum has access to jobs posted by several organizations that have defined criterion to meet, it would be useful as a job seeker to see those other job listings and be able to apply to them with in the plum universe.

          • 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.

              • 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.

                        • 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.

                            • 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).
