As an employer, you need a better way to sort through thousands of job seekers with the right skills to help your organization stay competitive. Our services can help you find the right candidate for your job opening and help you reduce your turnover costs.
How do we do it? Our database categorizes each job seeker into certain occupational categories, based on skill sets, credentials, and interests. You can search for candidates by occupational category to narrow the list of candidates you wish to contact. In addition, we can do a skills analysis on your job opening and match it to the skills assessments that were done with job seekers - this provides a better job match between you and the candidates.
