About

If you were to sell your bike, you would put up an ad. The ad would contain a description of the bike, the price for it and when a potential buyer might could come and get it. If you want to create an ad about yourself that describes your potential, your skills and what you would like to work with – there is nowhere to go. Sure – there are some really good career platforms where you can expand your network and get to know people in the same industry as yours. But if you want to get matched with recruiters and hiring managers based on what really matters for you – well here´s a big gap.

JobAgent is, exactly as the name applies – a job agent that will help you in your career. The basis of the platform is your personal ad, your TalentAd. You will choose what should be in it and what should be searchable. When a recruiter/ hiring manager is searching for talents, anonymized TalentAds will be ranked based on the search criteria. Then the recruiting party will apply to the talent to get access to the entire TalentAd. After that – it´s time to get ready for your interview.

Matching today is done when you have applied to a specific job, most people will unfortunately not get selected but deselected. Most recruiting systems however still states that “we will keep your data for upcoming positions”, this usually never ever happens. So what’s the problem here? Well, first you get deselected and then you´re forgotten.

But what would happen if you were to let your data be searchable in one large database instead of all those locked CV-databases? That means that you would be a part of every recruitment process done in the entire platform. You would never be deselected again (it´s you that companies are applying for and not the other way around), and you would never be forgotten (you decide what companies that may apply to you). So, we are turning all the big data in here for the good of the Talent. Yes, we are building this for you! Yes – You!
