We discovered My GAN App’s team-building potential while developing this app for job seekers. As we identified key areas for improvement and focused on enabling the best practices within those areas, we realized that we could use My GAN App to help us do our own jobs better. This became more and more obvious as we broke down the aspects of what helps individuals function better as engaged, productive team members. The secret (and it’s not really a secret) consists of good work habits and responsive connections with other team members. Every feature in My GAN App supports behavior that’s been proven to add great value if practiced daily:

  • There are a lot of jokes about list makers, but research shows that organized people are achievers. Use Checklist to create and manage your lists.
  • What’s a list without a purpose? Planning Journal helps you identify and refine your purpose, break it into a strategy, and calendar every strategic task.
  • Whether capturing brainstorms or documenting examples, My Media works with your phone’s camera and recorder to make audio, video, and pics easy to archive, rate, and share with your team.
  • Challenge yourself to excel! Share challenges with your colleagues to help you grow as a team. My GAN App’s Assignments feature keeps you motivated and focused.
  • Learning is critical to both professional and personal growth. With the shareable lists in Books & Resources, you can invite your team members to share the benefits of books, videos, seminars, conferences, courses, and blogs that are helping you learn and grow.
  • Why wait for the annual performance review? Once you start using My GAN App, the Reports feature can show your progress in any area over any length of time.
  • And just like other social media platforms, GAN lets you Chat with friends or Invite a Friend to download and join My GAN App.

Whether you’re a job seeker connecting with mentors and recruiters or an employee connecting with team members, you own all the content that you post and share in My GAN App.

Looking for a new job or trying to advance in your current situation is always a big undertaking. We call this app Go Achieve Now! because skilled professionals like you deserve a higher chance of success. Here’s how My GAN App can you practice and prepare for achieving your goals:

  • My GAN App offers a suite of features to help you organize and visualize the complicated (and often stressful) process of defining what you want and planning how to best achieve your goals. Clarify your purpose, write yourself affirmations, and create a strategy with Planning Journal. Track your progress step by step with Checklist, and match your goals against your performance with Reports. It’s empowering to have all this on a phone app that you carry around in your pocket.
  • My GAN App helps you focus on professional growth with Assignments (a feature for setting yourself challenges), and Books & Resources (a reading and resource list for areas of knowledge that you want to expand or discover). Your Profile includes a place to add new job experience, technical skills, certifications, projects, and educational qualifications — the critical building blocks for creating a resume.
  • The My Media feature takes you to My GAN App’s direct interface with your phone’s video camera and audio recorder. This makes it easy to practice for critical interviews, and to ensure that you’re presenting the best possible version of yourself.
  • Use My GAN App’s Chat feature to find and interact with mentors who can support your development and search. This is also an easy way for staying on the radar of recruiters for the industries and positions that interest you.

You can also share a specific Checklist in the Reports feature to keep your team or mentor up to date on your to-do list and your progress.
