OUR TOOLS

We not only help prepare compelling application documents, but also deploy our tools to improve your application throughput and expedite your job search. We also equip you with application tracking tools, workbooks and resources to ace your interviews and land offers.

CHALLENGES WE SOLVE

There are several websites out there that share tactics to help prospective job seekers land employment opportunities in Europe. However, few websites or career coaches provide authoritative advise grounded in labor market data, job market sensitivity, trending skills, and empirical (based on experience) insights. Consequently, many career advisors offer the standard services, such as Cover Letter and Curriculum Vitae review, LinkedIn profile optimization, etc. Though having profession application documents is necessary, it not sufficient to land interview or job offers. Our advisory approach is based on our 1st-hand experiences and mental models of hiring team that include hiring managers that make the actual hiring decision and recruiters who support hiring managers in the recruitment process. Structuring your application documents along these dimensions for your target personas increases the odds of your profile getting shortlisted for subsequent stages.

Many hiring organizations use Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to handle the volume of candidate applications. ATS are sophisticated systems that leverage complex logic to parse candidate applications and shortlist candidates for further consideration. Many job seekers are oblivious to these systems and consequently, invest their efforts in enhancing their application documents to human reviewers. Using our Artificial Intelligence tools powered by a large corpus of job posting data and trending keywords, we enrich our clients’ application with metadata that improves the findability when hiring managers search for suitable candidates in the ATS.

In our view, applicants should spend the bulk of their valuable time submitting job applications, rather than spending their resources (time, efforts, money, etc.) on wasteful activities, such as browsing for jobs across multiple job portals or formatting and typesetting documents. To that end, we seek inefficiencies and remedy them through automation. Based on the job categories we identified during the Discovery Call, we aggregate suitable job listings in a single repository. Furthermore, the repository also entails tracking logic and analytics that transparently reports your application performance. As a result, our clients spend their precious time submitting applications (maximizing their application throughput), networking with prospective employers and interviewing, rather than browsing job portals and editing application documents.

Though such marginal improvements across several hundred client engagements, we have developed tools leveraging state-of-the-art technologies and innovations to deliver clear client benefits and cost efficiencies as measured by lower service prices, superior document quality (design and content). These effectively result in more satisfied customers, who confidently recommend our services to their family and friends, which result in our increased year-on-year revenue growth.

Job search is an intense process marked by frustration, rejections and disappointment. It is a mental roller coaster. During this trying situation, we support our clients with personalized guidance, support and counseling, so that they push their boundaries and realize their career aspirations. We guide them at every step of the application process, starting from preparing their application requirements and shortlisting job openings to interviewing tips and salary negotiation. We also  equip our clients with the tools and insights based on current job market data to help them to identify and narrow down their choices of interest. Our advisors personally guide the job seekers through the entire job search process till they finally sign the job offer.

During job search, having a trustworthy partner who has gone through the same journey that you are embarking on could be of great help. No only would such a partner help you avoid mistakes, but also provide insights from experience, that could help you achieve your goals faster. In our view, each client-engagement is our chance to forge new, long-term relationships with future leaders. We build long-term, trust-based clients relationships, partake in their achievements, and celebrate their career successes. In our experience, our revenues and profits have resulted from satisfied customers recommending our services to their friends and family. We are only happy when you find a job. That is why we will guide you step by step until you have actually reached your goal.

OUR ENGAGEMENT PHILOSOPHY

Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.

Our engagement philosophy is modeled on the aforementioned age-old adage. This might probably be first time that you are seeking employment in a different country. In addition to nuances in application documents, there are several technological and cultural norms that determine whether a company picks up your application or is forgotten. You might find the entire process overwhelming with a lot of unknowns. Furthermore, the numerous rejection emails in your Inbox are downright disappointing.

During the engagement process, you will work alongside our advisors and learn the art and science of building a compelling application package. The learning will help you, not only in the short-term, but also over your entire career. Our proven frameworks are of great help, whether you are applying for Internships or student jobs during your studies, seeking full-time opportunities post-graduation or when making career transitions long after your graduation.

During the engagement process, you will not only witness your application documents take shape, but also learn the logic and reasoning behind the various aspects of building a compelling application.

CASE

During job search, most candidates spend a significant amount of time vetting jobs across the same job portals as their fellow applicants (2-4 hours per day). Furthermore, most companies require a Cover Letter, Curriculum Vitae, and Transcripts (work experience, academic qualifications, certifications, etc.). Hence, candidates substantial time customizing job applications to match prospective employers’ specific expectations (3-4 hours per day). Though this is a good practice, beyond a certain threshold, these efforts deliver marginal (low) results as measured by interviews or offers.

Moreover, when editing application documents for each job listing, errors in formatting, spelling, typesetting, etc. will, inadvertently, happen. Furthermore, poor or inadequate document designs or run-off-the-mill templates from the Internet pain a negative professional portrait among prospective employers.

Potential employers view your application as one that did not require thought and effort on your part. Consequently, they view your application as one that does not warrant their consideration and time. Your prospective employers interpret the poor quality of application documents as representative of your person – one with a lack of professionalism, judgment and standards.

Reviewing job listings and editing your application documents are important. These are, however, low-value activities that are redundant, error-prone and more importantly, do not help you land your dream job. Instead, you should be spending bulk of your time submitting applications and networking with recruiters and companies.

Maximizing your application throughput i.e., submitting professional and well-written application documents to as many companies and presenting your best profile, is more important. Complemented by professional networking, your dream job is close enough.

OUR SOLUTION

Job search could be time-consuming, frustrating and laborious. During such uncertain times, having an external partner with experience, tools, data, frameworks, proven methodologies, and job market insights by your side could be both, assuring and pragmatic. Our career services cover everything you need – from creating a compelling application documents and aggregating job postings from multiple portals to helping plan your long-term career in Europe.

During job search, candidates waste time reviewing job listings and editing application documents, instead of submitting them (maximizing application throughput). Our Artificial Intelligence based job aggregator sources unique job listings that match your job categories across several popular and niche job portals.

Poor application documents signal to potential employers that you have not put in your efforts to present you in the best light. However, most job seekers are not professional designers. To over come this shortcoming, our automated tools expedite application document creation by producing consistent and high quality documents of superior design, content and quality.

In addition to design and content, we optimize your application documents to meet the stringent requirements of Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) – software that companies use to source, search and shortlist candidates. We enrich your application documents with metadata using our Artificial Intelligence tools and an extensive keyword corpus to position your profile when recruiters and hiring managers search for candidates in the ATS.

With access to submission-ready documents and job listing at a single location in the shortest amount of time, you can invest your valuable time in maximizing your application throughput, revising your job search strategy, networking and securing interviews, rather than spending it reviewing job postings and editing application documents.

Why can’t I figure this out myself?2021-11-04T21:01:04+01:00

If you are like most of our clients, job / internship search or university admissions is something you do, perhaps, a few time in your lifetime.

In other words, we have gathered a lot of experience from our successes and failures. You don’t need a career advisor or admissions consultant to land a job or get an admit at a university. Nevertheless, having a support system, an experienced team, and trusted partners like INTRVU by your side will help you reach your goals much, much faster and avoid a lot of frustrations and mistakes along the way.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

I was searching for words that could describe my happiness about your service and how confident I became when I knew exactly what I should do in the next 5-10 years of my life. I know what to do now and which companies to consider when searching for my dream job that fits my personality along with the workplace that is the best fit for me. The candidate profile you compiled was amazing and the interview tips were extremely helpful. I am ready now to move forward. Overall the experience was wonderful.

Mechanical Engineer, Faurecia, Germany

As a PhD student that struggled to transition to industry, my experience with INTRVU has been fantastic. Following a friend’s recommendation, I attended a full-day workshop organised by INTRVU and Deutsch-Amerikanisches Institut in Heidelberg. The workshop was a mix of theoretical and practical sessions and covered all aspects of landing a job from properly reading job descriptions to negotiating a job offer. Their analysis of the job market and frameworks to structure the application documents were not only innovative, but also practical. I’d recommend their excellent workshops and services to any PhD student looking for a job in the industry. It worked for me and I’m sure it would for you.
