Peerlist Monthly Update: August 2022

There are so many new things to share updates. I hope I will be able to cover all of that in this single post πŸ˜ƒ. The team is working tirelessly to build and ship these unique workflows to make Peerlist a better place for professionals to hang out.

Introducing Peerlist Hire

We are taking one significant step towards building a true community of professionals. We proudly announce our most important vertical, Peerlist Hire.

Peerlist Hire is a way to change how companies hire; candidates can find jobs and get hired. With Peerlist, companies can hire the most credible people with proof of work profiles. And we have taken our first step in that direction.

Know how to get a recruiter profile.


RSS Integration

Many of our senior professionals are self-hosting their blogs and not using any other publishing platforms. So many of them asked us to introduce a way to showcase their blogs on their Peerlist profile. So here we are; introducing RSS Integration.

Peerlist Profile + RSS Integration

To connect your blog via RSS, you need to share the feed URL, and we will take care of the rest (as always πŸ˜‰).


New Website

A fresh look-n-feel was required for the Peerlist website to reflect these new and significant changes. This revamp was essential to communicate our bigger and broader vision for Peerlist.


Email Signature Generator (Peerlist Tools)

Now you can create your custom email signature with a few clicks using your Peerlist profile data. We will be adding a few more tools in the upcoming months. Rishi Purwal builds this tool during his internship at Peerlist. Good work, mate!
