We search millions of jobs from the Internet and job aggregators to return the most interesting and relevant jobs matched to your skills and preferences. The more you View, Like, or Comment on a specific type of job the more relevance we will assign to these jobs that interest you. When you click on “More Like This” you save the job into your starred jobs folder to follow, and “Less Like This” tells us the types of jobs that you do not want to see in your job search. The more you interact on the site the more specific your job search becomes.
Connect with your friends on Facebook. Some of your friends have valuable industry and professional experience. They may work at companies that interest you, or they may know somebody who does. Talk with them about your goals and ask them for introductions to hiring managers inside the companies you like.
All of your saved jobs, conversations with friends and about jobs are organized neatly into a familiar activity stream under your Starred Jobs, Friends, and Conversations tabs so you can quickly refer back to information that can aid in your job search or application process.
Update your profile so that your new friends’ first look at your professional online resume is current and relevant. The day is coming soon when resumes will be obsolete, so make your professional profile stand out by making it current and complete.
An online resume that is backed up with references from people in your industry and profession is a powerfully persuasive combination. Ask your connections for a recommendation that tells reviewers of your profile your character strengths and skills. Return the favor by endorsing friends about whose work you think highly.

He’s known for having a knack for numbers, and before masterminding Cachinko with his buddy Rajen, he held both Finance Director and CIO positions at DSLabs.His true passion is starting and steering successful companies (like Blue Produce). Having been on both sides of the hiring desk, he knows firsthand how frustrating it is to look for and find a job using traditional job boards and how time-consuming and costly it is to recruit great employees. Felipe refused to accept a less than perfect process. He envisioned a better way to find and recruit talented people, and from this vision Cachinko was born.
