We recognized that there was no efficient way for Hiring Companies to know what candidates’ career desires were from their public professional profiles, resulting in undesired outreach and negative ROI from those messages.
GoGig now provides a professional network with warm leads that have a higher chance of response on a more accessible network.
The old job board system today is set up to deliver the wrong people to hiring companies. Candidates now know to litter their resumes and LinkedIn profiles with keywords that trigger crawlers. It’s no wonder that only 66% of applicants for a given job meet the minimum qualifications. This creates a financial depletion because hours are wasted sifting through unqualified resumes, costing companies on average $5,504 and up to 6 months per hire.
Moreover, the Bureau of Labor and Statistics showed a 25% increase in hires in 2014, but a 100% increase in quantity of job openings. Both were at 25% in 2011.
Simply put, the tools available for hiring companies today are old and tired. GoGig provides a simple, necessary advancement to professional job networking.
