Remote Work Junkie - How your brain reacts to layoffs 🧠

Kicking off the week with a bang πŸ’₯

We've been chatting with a few trusted recruiters in our network as well as some job seekers in our talent network.

And we've made some improvements and recent adjustments that benefit both groups.

Here's what's new:

βœ… New job seeker account creation using LinkedIn. Sign up using your LinkedIn profile instead of creating a new account and password. Plus it will fill in some fields for you as well.

βœ… Added an option to the sign up process where you can select if you'd like be featured in the newsletter and/or LinkedIn page that you are looking for remote work. We ran a poll and 1.3k+ people voted, with 96% saying yes to adding this option. 

βœ… Finalized pricing structure for those looking to source candidates is live. Free (15 profile credits), $29/month (100 profile credits per month), or one-time payment of $199 to get lifetime access to unlimited profiles.

βœ… Updated pricing to the job board. We've adjusted the featured listing price to $79 per job and extended it being featured for 45 days instead of 30. Jobs can still be listed for free, but well get much less promotion and visibility. And we do vet ALL remote jobs before they go live.
