MrEmploy is a newly launched application that hopes to match job seekers with employers in a simple way.

The application is made simple by automating a number of the steps of the job application process and linking candidates with employers suited to them.

The idea behind this is that less time is wasted by both job seekers and employers.

“MrEmploy is an advanced smart matching system that speeds up recruiting. For employers, it saves time and reduces the risk of hiring the wrong person, while for employees, it links them to the kinds of jobs they are best suited to,” explains managing director at MrEmploy, Ryan Oettle.

Job seekers are able to create a micro-CV, a 15 second video and upload a photo to the application. Job seekers are shown the jobs they qualify and can show their interest by giving the position a “thumbs up”.

“The short intro video is incredibly powerful because it gives employers a real sense of whether the candidate will fit the culture and nature of their business. It’s an opportunity to make a great first impression,” explains Oettle.

As for employers, MrEmploy allows businesses in any sector to take advantage of the application.

“MrEmploy provides enough information for employers to decide whether or not they want to meet a candidate. We save employers’ time that they would have spent sifting through CVs and doing telephonic interviews, as well as those unnecessary early face-to-face meetings,” the managing director explained.

Just like Tinder, the job seekers and employer both need to thumbs-up each other.

While the application is free to use for job-seekers, employers will pay R100 for each job they upload.

MrEmploy is available to download for free for both Android and iOS devices.
