Careerflow has been Selected for Techstars 2023

Careerflow Team

Around six months ago, the tech industry was hit by a wave of layoffs, with giants like Meta, Amazon, Google, and Microsoft letting go of thousands of employees. Additionally, the combination of hiring freezes and an economic downturn created a disheartening environment for job seekers 😢.

It was during this time that we decided to step in and support job seekers by leveraging AI. We recognized the need for innovative solutions to help job seekers navigate through job market challenges.

With this in mind, we embarked on a journey to build tools that support job seekers in their quest for employment. Our team worked tirelessly to create solutions that streamline the job search process, providing job seekers with the resources they need to succeed. And we have reached a noteworthy milestone on our journey.
