Research shows that the average job posting on job boards, corporate websites and social media sites has 20 requirements that job seekers have to match before they apply. For example, if a requirement is one word (i.e. marketing) then job seekers still have to guess 20 words and enter them into the keyword field to find job postings where they match the requirements. Only those job postings with the right level of matching will lead to actual interviews.
Mounting frustration among job seekers experiencing a lack of response to applications has led SkillPROOF to develop an online job search solution that addresses the keyword matching problem. This solution allows job seekers to easily find job postings where they match the job requirements and helps them optimize a resume in a way that leads to more interviews.
Job seekers are invited to join the focus group to learn and try this new solution.
