Before we dive into the Crash Report, here’s a thought about cover letters. Enjoy.

What We Worked On This Week

  • Did lots of customer interviews and research—we built a user satisfaction survey to get feedback on tailored pitches from around two hundred Crashers
  • Answered questions from users and hiring managers
  • Removed launch—now published profiles are viewable in the search gallery (there are several hundred career-launchers here!)
  • Published an ultimate guide to breaking into software engineering without experience
  • Notified published users of changes with launch
  • Worked on a lot of content (posts for the rest of the year, newsletters, social media posts, new blog graphics)
  • Created a new home base for all of our career guides—check them out here!
  • Made updates to the blog post template and the all-posts page
  • Isaac was on two more podcasts—and he recorded another episode of the upcoming season two of Career Crashers
  • Made profile reviews a pro feature
  • Started building career launch curriculum
  • Put together two ad reports with takeaways and learnings for upcoming experiments
  • Continued pitch design work
  • Worked on name- and bio-based search, and updated search (and partner search) to find published profiles
  • Did market research
  • Worked on private launch ability
