UNMET Jobs is powered by Largely©, which is a job matchmaking platform focused on improving the job search experience. Largely humanizes the hiring process by combining the traditional resume with personal videos, highlighting human traits that a resume can never provide: a job seeker’s personality, energy, and uniqueness. For employers, Largely makes it easy to engage with the candidate by showcasing their most valuable asset: Their team. Employers can invite their team to post authentic and simple videos to tell stories about their company culture, values, and more.
How UNMET Jobs works:
Job seekers will upload video introductions and answer a questionnaire that explores their personal and professional attributes, together acting as a virtual resume.
Employers are then able to filter from the pool of applicants by selecting various criteria while also being able to browse through recommended lists of applicants.
Employers may then use the platform to contact job seekers directly and set up virtual interviews and invite them to webinars or info sessions.
The platform also offers advice, tools and insight on developing an online resume, virtual interview hacks and answers to frequently asked questions for both employers and job seekers.
“Arizona’s educational institutions are producing the workforce of the future, and we’re proud to partner with UNMET Jobs to highlight our state’s impressive talent pool through this virtual event,” said Sandra Watson, Arizona Commerce Authority President & CEO. “By leveraging technology, we’re able to facilitate a greater number of meaningful connections between Arizona job seekers and job creators.”
