Career Meets Life Launches

Career Meets Life Launches

After months of passion infused hard work, Career Meets Life is making its debut! We’ve been busy creating a new platform for professionals to display their skills and experiences.

WE’VE LAUNCHED. WE ARE LIVE. WE ARE THRILLED.

We have built a marketplace for talent, removing the search from job searching.  Let’s face it, looking for new career opportunities isn’t easy or fun – especially if you already have a job. Career Meets Life is different from job boards because we let professionals position themselves and their experiences, while remaining anonymous. Employers (currently in a closed alpha trial) can freely search and view anonymous candidates to find a match for their open canvass and make them an offer – opportunities are sent directly to the candidate.

We believe that job seekers should have more control & feel empowered in their career planning. And as an employer you will have access to our talent pool without barriers or a middle man!

WHAT TO EXPECT.

It can be difficult to tell your story through a typical timeline based, standard format cv and so we wanted to move away from the traditional resume. Your Career Meets Life profile will enable you to highlight your top skills and relevant experiences related to those skills, indicate what your work term preferences are (flex hours, relocation, part time, full time etc.), and also show some personality. The idea is that we want to make it easier for you to distinguish yourself from the pack and stand out with your own unique ‘career story’.

Upcoming posts will contain tips and advice for writing a compelling profile and standing out. You can sign up to our blog to receive these tips as well as other career advice & trends.

THANK YOUS.

Projects like these don’t get built in a day nor by a single person. We’ve had the chance to work with such talented and passionate people. As they say in French, ‘chacun son métier’…

Special thanks to Pramesh Attwala @ GRNDWRK and Dana Harrison.

FINALLY.

This platform was built with the career seeker in mind. We need your input and welcome your feedback, whether you have already signed up or will be signing up, as we continue to build on our beta launch. There’s lots still in store!
