Version 2024.05

Career App

Equaliser for talents.

We are proud to share that the first version of the Equaliser, or match preferences, is available to talents. The Equaliser will be visible in the Career App and for Match App users who view a talent profile in the job market. Note that this is a beta functionality only visible to selected users.

How does the Equaliser work? This functionality allows you to boost, or reduce, certain match factors when looking for a project. For example, if you want to make a career switch then work experience may be less important to you while soft and transferable skills, on the other hand, you might want to boost. With the equaliser, users have an extra tool to influence their match results.

Match App

Inviting talents.

Inviting new talents to your talent pool should be quick and easy. That’s why we’ve created a new flow where you can send talents an invitation directly in a few clicks. Enter an e-mail address to invite talent directly, or copy the invitation link and use it in your own e-mails or on your website.

 

Assign a recruiter or coach to a talent.

In the talent pool, there is now a column to assign a recruiter or coach to a talent. When you create a fully managed profile as a recruiter, you will automatically be assigned to this talent. Using the dropdown menu, you can easily change the recruiter or choose the ‘none’ option. In the column, you can use the search functionality to quickly find the right colleague.

 

 

New channels page.

We have revamped our channels page on the open platform. Here, talents can find companies, follow them and even request to be represented by intermediaries.

 

Years of experience in a project.

Until now, it was only possible to specify years of experience on the filters tab when matching a project. Now, you can also specify the number of years of the requested work experience. The number of years you enter here is automatically applied on the filters page.
