As the largest segment of the workforce, millennials are changing the face of the recruiting industry
Don’t think resumes effectively convey their skills
Prefer social media to job boards
Prefer to use a mobile device for job searching
Always searching for new opportunities, even while they are happily employed
There is an unfilled void in social job searching behavior
73% of job seekers found their last job through some type of social media channel
94% of recruiters are active on LinkedIn, but only 36% of candidates are using it (primarily white collar)
84% of candidates are on FB but only 17% of them use it for job related purpose
Since small businesses do not have in-house recruiters or HR to find quality candidates, they are forced to use search tools and job boards that offer a poor user experience and often return irrelevant results. This creates a disconnect between employers and the candidates they are seeking leaving a large number of jobs unfilled.
The current way of finding and filling jobs no longer works and in today’s world, traditional job boards haven’t maintained pace with technological advances.
Say hello to umé
The new way
umé is a revolutionary platform for finding and filling jobs, in a more personalized social media style way, resulting in higher quality candidates that get jobs filled quicker.
Instead of broad keyword matches like traditional job sites - our algorithm scrubs
industry verticals and candidate qualifications to come up with a precise, two-way match.
“I’ve tried a lot of job search apps with little to no success. With Umé I had interviews within a week, and a job in two. ”
Umé is amazing. I love how I can apply to a job with one click. At first I was skeptical, now I’m an (employed) believer.
I love the way Umé feels like a lot of the social media apps I use everyday. It’s just so easy to understand.
What’s great is that I can find the jobs I’m looking for without having to go through a ton of job matches that aren’t even close to what I’m looking for.
