Insight into competition

Competition reports allow job seekers to gain insight on other applicants, including top skills, degrees, and years of experience. Applicants can see where they fall within the employer’s application period, whether they were the first resume submitted or resume 250.

Application status updates

Application status updates let job seekers easily determine where they are in the application process. Finance professionals can see when their application was viewed and if they made the employer’s shortlist.


Increased visibility

Edge candidate profiles receive the highest level of visibility across OneWire. With premium status, candidates are highlighted when an employer runs a search, while premium placement allows Edge candidates to jump to the very top of the employer’s applicant list.

Notification of profile views and new job opportunities


Edge provides insight into which firms are viewing your profile, and sends instant alerts when relevant jobs are posted to enable you to apply before anyone else.

Instant job alerts

Instant job alerts allow Edge users to be the first to know when new, relevant jobs are posted allowing them to apply well before anyone else.

“Right now, on average, employers are receiving up to 250 resumes for every open position. It’s hard for job seekers to know where they stand,” said OneWire founder and CEO Skiddy von Stade. “We created this product to help job seekers in the hyper competitive finance industry understand the playing field and stand out from the pack.”

“The finance industry is an aggressive field, so we created this tool in order to help talented workers get a leg up on the competition,” von Stade said. “OneWire aims to give candidates the Edge they need to land their dream job.”
