Today, we're publicly announcing the launch of our free AI job search assistant that can rewrite resumes, draft cover letters and find job matches in minutes.
We're also announcing that we've raised $4.5 million in funding led by Andreessen Horowitz and Abstract Ventures.
Job Searches are Brutal and Lonely
The dreaded job search. It's no secret - job searches are brutal. They're hard work, overwhelming, and fraught with rejection. The average search in the US is approximately 5 months. But the difference between a successful and unsuccessful job search can be the difference between being financially secure and financially distressed. Despite this, most job seekers navigate their searches alone. When we started working on EarnBetter a little over a year ago, we interviewed hundreds of job seekers. In those interviews, we'd always ask, “Who's helping you?” The most common answer we heard: “It's just me.” It's time for that to change.
Introducing EarnBetter's Free AI Job Search Assistant
With the significant advances in generative AI, it's now possible to provide job seekers a lot more support. Today, we're publicly announcing the launch of EarnBetter's AI job search assistant. Its initial features include:
Professional Resumes - Upload an existing resume and the AI job search assistant will reformat and rewrite your resume for free in minutes.
AI Job Matches - The AI job search assistant scans through millions of jobs each day to provide you with the top matches based on your profile and preferences.
Customized Documents for Every Application - Customize a resume and cover letter for each job for free in seconds to stand out to potential employers.
How to Get Started
To get started, go to EarnBetter.com, upload your resume to the platform, and we'll deliver a professionally rewritten and reformatted resume in minutes. You can then personalize your resume template and format, and review and edit it easily. From there, you can download the resume and see job openings that match your profile and preferences, such as full-time, part-time, remote, etc. Once you find a job you're interested in applying to, we then help tailor your resume and cover letter to that job, highlighting skills and experiences that are relevant for the role. You can save openings for later, indicate a role isn't of interest, or apply right on the spot.
EarnBetter Services are Free
There's one thing we feel strongly about - job seekers need more support, not another expense. By developing an offering that is 100% free to job seekers, we can deliver job search support to everyone who needs it, not just everyone who can afford it. How is EarnBetter free? It's simple - we're compensated by employers when people find and apply for jobs through the site.
Why We Founded EarnBetter
Several of our co-founders previously held leadership roles at Credit Karma, a company whose mission is to make financial progress possible for everyone. For many people though, financial progress is elusive without changing one's income. EarnBetter was created with the vision to build a free service that helps people advance their careers in order to achieve financial security.
To date, people using EarnBetter's beta AI job search assistant have created over 100,000 resumes and cover letters. We're also seeing people share EarnBetter with their friends and family - roughly a quarter of new users come through word-of-mouth.
We're proud to do what we do to support job seekers like Jordan. EarnBetter's beta AI job search assistant helped Jordan create the perfect resume and cover letter for her dream job as a residential supervisor for a group home that serves individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Before EarnBetter, Jordan was applying for jobs for 2 to 3 months but kept getting passed over or rejected. With EarnBetter, Jordan crafted a newly improved resume and got a call back directly after as a result. “I loved that the website provides you with information on how good of a match your skills are with a certain job, as well as allowing you to create a resume directly from job postings,” she said. Jordan also shared that now things are “going great and I absolutely am in love with my job!”
We're also thrilled to publicly announce that EarnBetter has raised $4.5 million in funding from Andreessen Horowitz, Abstract Ventures and others. With the funding, we're looking forward to continuing to build out AI products that support job seekers and assembling a world-class team passionate about improving job search.
