In the beginning was the word and job seekers wrote it on paper in an attempt to convince employers to hire them. Then, some got more creative, added a bit of color and changed the layout. Connect a Job takes things to a whole different level by showing video resumes to employers, thus making the entire job hunting process more personal.
The first logical step that job seekers and employers must take if they intend to use Connect a Job is to create an account on the Website. The registration process is a bit different between these two classes of users, but Connect a Job will make ends meet. While job seekers are able to create an account for free, employers will have to pay a subscription that is weekly, monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or yearly. The fees are as follows:
- $49 for a week
- $159 for a month
- $439 for 3 months
- $699 for 6 months
- $1,149 for a year
A Forever Free Plan is also available for employers, but it comes with some limitations. More precisely, employers who decide to use a Forever Free Plan will not be able to download resumes, use the messaging tools or watch any video resumes. However, they can purchase access anytime.
Looking for people to hire could not be simpler. Once on the homepage of Connect a Job, employers can easily type the profession and the location of the job seeker. In addition, a list of popular cities is provided, to make things even easier.
Up to this point, people might think that there is nothing special about Connect a Job. To prove them wrong, the company brings into play video resumes, the main strong point of this job hunting service. Resumes, either online or on paper, did not actually stand apart as long as they were based solely on text. Adding colors and even pictures changed the situation a bit, but not enough to make the resumes truly personal. Connect a Job offers job seekers the possibility to use dynamic tools in order to create multidimensional profiles.
Tal Winner, one of the co-founders of Connect a Job, declared: “Modernizing the traditional resume format was long overdue, but we take it to the next level […] A Connect a Job profile is like a resume, portfolio and first interview all in one.””
Multidimensional profiles will save both job seekers and employers a lot of time. First of all, job seekers will not have to repeat the same things over and over again. At the same time, employers will also save time by not scheduling so many interviews until the perfect candidates are found.
