Labels.io is a web-app that aims to improve the way employers and job applicants find each other online. Rather than forcing hiring managers to wade through thousands of wordy resumes and applications, Labels.io makes it possible to quickly zero in on job seekers who have all the rights talents and skills. For professionals, the web-app uses an internal algorithm to match candidates with employers who are looking for people who have the skills they possess. Labels.io takes the work out of hiring for management and job seekers alike.
The way you utilize Labels.io will depend on whether you’re an applicant or a hiring manager. Let’s say you’re looking for a new job as a graphic designer. First you’ll want to create a Labels.io profile and type up a brief introduction that sums up your professional identity. This introduction is what hiring managers will read, rather than a full resume, so you’ll want to make sure it’s good. The web-app will then rank your profile based on a series of factors, including the number of internal visitors who visit your Labels.io page and your professional involvement in various social networking sites – also known as you “social authority.” From this point on, your job is done. Labels.io will send your profile to employers who need workers with your skill set and experience, eliminating the need for you to send out resumes and constantly search for the latest job postings online.
Of course, Labels.io isn’t just useful for professionals. It can be useful for employers looking to fill openings with qualified candidates, as well. Hiring managers have the choice to search for candidates by keyword or to post a job opening on the Labels.io site. As soon as a posting has been created, Labels.io will get to work finding qualified candidates and sending a customizable short-list of professionals who meet the listed qualifications.
