How to Apply to a Job in Under 30 Minutes

Young woman enjoying the afternoon

Applying to jobs always seems like a huge drag–right? We get it. The application process always seems long, requires a lot of editing to your resume and, after you finish applying to one, you move on to your next application, only to find out it’s completely different and asks for more information. It’s so annoying.

The good news is–we’re here to help. Glassdoor is rated as the #2 job site in the United States and we help 45 million job seekers find work every month–so we really mean it when we say we understand your stressors and want to help remove all of it. And guess what? We’ve actually made applying to a job MUCH easier.

All we need from you is thirty minutes. Yes, you read that right–all we need is thirty minutes of your time and we can help you apply to a job. Is it really that easy? Yes, it is. Got your timer set? Ready, set, go!

1. Upload your resume

The first step is easy: upload your resume.  After you click the upload button, there will be a prompt for you to create an account on Glassdoor. You can enter your e-mail, or you can simply use your Google or Facebook profile to connect your account so you don’t have to fill out all your information. Now that your profile is set up and your resume is uploaded, all you have to do is apply to jobs. You don’t have to keep uploading and re-uploading your resume. See? I told you it was easy.

2. Search for a job

You’ll notice that the search bar on Glassdoor makes it really easy to search for the job you want. Looking for a job in customer service? Finance? Business management? Simply start typing the industry or a specific job title you are looking for and Glassdoor will give you some search terms to search by. If you’re looking for a job in a specific city, you can enter the location so the site only shows you job in the location you live.

3. Research the job

You can also search by ‘Company,’ ‘Salary,’ or ‘Interviews’ to find more information about a specific job before you apply. Searching by Company allows you to check if a particular company you are interested in has any job listings you can apply to. Moreover, we highly recommend checking the ‘Salary’ information on the job or company you are looking at ahead of time. This could save you a lot of time in the long run–what’s the point of spending time even applying to a job that doesn’t offer the pay you are looking for or qualified for.

4. Click on ‘Easy Apply Jobs’

Once you’ve found a job you’re interested in, all you have to do is apply! Glassdoor has an awesome feature that really speeds up the process of applying to jobs. When you find a job you are interested in applying to, on the bottom left corner of the page there’s a blue button that says “Easy Apply” and yes, it is as simple as clicking this button!

Your resume is already attached and you can add an option cover letter in the text box. Unless the application specifically asks for a cover letter, you can leave this blank. Simply click “Apply,” and you’re done.

Check your timer – we bet it’s been less than thirty minutes and you’ve already sent your resume off to a prospective employer! Now that you know it’s this easy to apply to a job, what are you waiting for? Apply to more!
