People looking for jobs in Marion County have a new tool at their disposal that could help speed up connections between job seekers and employers.
The Indy Chamber on Monday announced a partnership with Indianapolis-based Jobvite, a recruiting-software firm.
The chamber said the company is contributing its expertise and systems to improve the operational systems of the recently announced Rapid Response Talent initiative.
“As we saw in our Job Seeker Nation report launched last week, 54% of job seekers are concerned about losing a job and 73% believe finding a job is harder this year,” said Jobvite Chief Marketing Officer Jeffrey Rohrs. “We must, as a community, come together and help connect employers and job seekers.”
Rohrs said applicants can complete a form in less than a minute to share their job interests on the Jobvite platform.
Employers can sign up for a profile, upload information on current openings, and work with the Indy Chamber to identify targeted candidates to fill available roles.
The Rapid Response Talent is a collaboration between the City of Indianapolis, EmployIndy, and Ascend Indiana.
“With the enhanced capabilities of the Jobvite platform, we expect faster and more comprehensive connections of people to employers and critical resources to meet immediate needs in our job market,” said Liz Huldin, strategy and human capital consultant for the Indy Chamber.
