This week, one of our awesome Crashers landed a job!
So one of our first Crashers just landed herself a job.— Crash (@CareerCrash) July 11, 2019
Normal time on the hunt: 3 months
Avg. apps sent: too many
But by making her job hunt an event:
Time since launch: <2 WEEKS!!
Excitement level: there is dancing
Employee/employer match: a wonderful fit https://t.co/zWmlyScVfI
By making her job hunt an event, Aquinnah Bree won a job in ten days!
Even more, lots of Crashers won interviews. (One told us his interview count was up to ten this week alone!)”
We’re thrilled to help more job-seekers announce and advertise their job hunt on Monday–keep an eye out on the homepage, and if you’d like to help them find their next opportunities, share job recommendations in the comments on their profiles!
Getting Ready for What’s Next + Promoting Crashers
Isaac met with a few investors, finished an article releasing next week on Medium, and did two podcast interviews. He also woke up at 3:15 a.m. Friday morning with a desperate need to write a team memo and jot down new feature ideas.
Mitchell was in the trenches giving Crashers his all this week. He prepped new launchers, helped them promote themselves, made some intros, gave referrals, and helped give a lot of feedback on pitches. He also did a lot of calls and emails with future launchers and wrote up this week’s newsletter.
Morgan promoted Crashers–their stories, videos, and readiness to be hired–on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Instagram. She wrote copy for and shipped new welcome emails, promoted a new guide of email templates for job-seekers, worked on videos for our third batch of launchers, and started on a new product video to show off Crash.
She also started a new Slack community for Crash launchers. This is going to be the place for all past and currect launchers to get first notice of job opportunities, advice, and more. If you want to join, use this link to set up a call and reserve your spot to launch on the homepage!

- A reason label for modals

And Dave worked hard on:
- Fixing login and signup flows
