⚡️ AI Question Filling

Not sure how to answer questions like “why do you want to work here”? With Simplify+, you’ll see the Simplify icon popup on the bottom left of these paragraph-based questions to help you out!
Our AI is trained on a dataset of recruiter-approved responses to common job application questions and uses information from your Simplify profile to generate the perfect response!
When you hover over the Simplify icon, you’ll see the option to provide additional context to the AI. We strongly recommend doing so – you can include relevant skills, experiences, or projects you want the AI to emphasize. Simplify Copilot will then use this information along with your profile and the job description to generate a well-crafted answer that addresses the question effectively.
Here’s a real-life example:
Question: Why do you want to work at Figma? Example Prompt: Mention that I love Figma’s product and use it everyday in my personal life. Include some unique aspects about their culture that I’d resonate with. Include that I have applicable product experience at my current job. Four sentences max. Generated Output: As an avid user of Figma in my personal life, I can attest to the power and usability of the platform. I love how Figma enables collaboration and streamlines the design process, allowing teams to create better products together.
The fast-paced and changing environment at Figma aligns with my experience working on complex and user-facing product launches at my current job as a co-founder of a SaaS platform. I'm confident that my background would make for a great APM at Figma!
This feature will help you save time and effort in crafting high-quality, personalized responses to these application questions.

You can build a custom resume and edit your coursework, descriptions, add projects, and more. Once you’re ready to save and create a new resume - click on the Save Resume button. When using a generated resume to autofill - your experiences will be pulled from the resume rather than the profile.

Note: To reset the data to your profile simply click on the “Reset to Profile” buttons in each section.
Naming Your Resume
We separate saved resume name from the uploaded file name on applications to ensure proper naming convention on applications and good organization for your resumes. When we upload your resume to a job application it will always be renamed to “firstname_lastname_resume”, so feel free to name your resume anything you want. We recommend naming them based on the role and industry/company you’re applying to.

If you’re worried that the correct resume isn’t being uploaded correctly since the name is the same on upload - just click on the “Preview Resume” button in the autofill popup.

✨ AI-Optimized Resumes for Every Job

We understand the importance of tailoring your resume to each job opportunity. By doing so, you can increase your chances of making it past the resume screen and improve your overall application success rate. To customize a resume to a job simply click on the “Tailor Resume” button on the Simplify Popup on a job application.

You’ll be redirected to the Resume Builder where we’ll automatically grab the job title and description.

After you’re done editing, clicking Use Resume will create the new resume and send it back to the job application to be uploaded.

Keyword Match
We’ll extract meaningful keywords from the job description so you can see how well your resume matches the role. You can select which keywords Simplify should include when generated new description points for your experiences. Keywords already included in your resume will have a blue checkmark. These keywords will be highlighted in the AI generated results. Click on the Resume Score banner to see all the keywords you are missing.

Alternatively, clicking on the ✨ AI Button (shown below) next to an individual bullet point will rewrite the specific bullet point and provide 3-5 options to replace the bullet.

⚙️ Customizing AI Settings

We also provide some configuration options for the AI generation. Click on the ⚙️ AI Settings button to open the settings.
notion image
Here’s how to use these options:
  • Job Description Tailoring
    • This toggle controls whether the job description should be used when rewriting the bullets. Toggling this off will result in more generic results – you may want to use this when creating more general, broad resumes.
  • Resume Generation Style
    • We offer three different resume styles for which you can have the AI follow. Simplify Standard is our own best practices style and the option we recommend for most cases. We also offer the Google XYZ and STAR formats.
  • Additional Prompt
    • This text field allows you to add any additional instructions, context, or information that you would like considered when generating the descriptions. Good examples are specifying where keywords should be mention and what accomplishments should be emphasized.

👣 Tracking Resumes Performance Across Job Applications

For jobs tracked by Simplify, we’ll automatically log the resume you used so you can keep track of how different resumes are performing. Be sure to update the statuses of your applications to keep these analytics up to date!
However, for applications we miss and custom applications you add, you can utilize Add Application popup on Job Tracker page which allows you to associate a specific resume with each application.
