The idea of Vpply came out of pure frustration. A frustration out of the current process when applying for jobs, the frustration out of not being able to find the right job and the frustration out of not being able to say more with just a cover letter and resume. Applying for jobs is a tedious and dull process with having to search various job boards, copy and pasting in cover letters and uploading resumes to jobs over and over in the hope of an interview or phone call.
“With the average job receiving over 100 applicants, it’s becoming increasingly harder and highly competitive to stand out from other candidates when applying for jobs.”
James Farrell, Founder
We started Vpply with the idea of giving people a platform in which they could put a face to their resumes, give the hiring manager a little insight into who they are and post jobs that everybody wants. Hiring Managers want to be wow’d from candidates that not only have the right skill set but care about the job they are applying. Vpply gives candidates the opportunity to show hiring managers who they are and that they are the right fit for the organisation. Giving people the chance to add a quick cover video to their application is not only more personable but it takes effort.
“Hiring Managers can tell within 15 seconds whether they like a candidate or not.”
Matthew Keating, Hiring Manager
We asked a room of students at the University of Sydney whether or not they felt they would stand a higher chance of getting hired for the jobs they wanted if they could tell the hiring manager face to face why they were the right candidates for the role, the result, 95% of the room said yes. Vpply gives candidates a great platform to give employers a little insight into who they are, share their story, passion, and experience for the jobs they are applying for giving them their best chance of getting hired. It’s almost as if you are applying for jobs in person.

Vpply is currently an iOS app that sources thousands of jobs from various job boards around the world and allows users to attach a quick 15-30 second intro video along with their application. Our core focus is connecting the next generation of job seekers with jobs they actually want.
