The recruitment industry is waiting to be disrupted. All the job boards including linkedin deliver a lot of junk, not interested , not relevant and not updated profiles. As a result all the the job boards put together only make 15% of overall revenue out of the total recruitment market opportunity. The remaining 85% today rest with HR consultants purely because they are able to deliver highly filtered profiles even though they contribute to only about 25-30% of overall hiring. Even there the consultants don't necessarily deliver on the three things that companies use to evaluate profiles i.e. skill match, culture match and trust . This is where myrefers comes in.
Myrefers uses referrals and social big data intelligence to help companies hire the best quality profiles in the shortest possible time . Each profile come filtered and matched through the three important parameters companies use to hire. Myrefers is a referral marketplace for jobs which uses the power of peoples connections , patented algorithms and social big data intelligence to help companies hire the best matched profiles for their open jobs. At myrefers, anybody can refer anyone for a job and get rewards. Every refer also helps individuals get something back which leads to more opportunities for improving his or her own professional rating & profile. The MyRefers platform becomes the conduit for such opportunities, karma, rewards and recognition.
